A few weeks ago, CitySeen wrote of rumours that were surfacing in local media about Jet Li's supposedly impending retirement. According to Oriental Daily News, his friends and family said the star had become disillusioned with the movie business. It said that Li was going to wander to the so-called 'Shangri La' region of Tibet and become a Buddhist monk.
Well, it turns out to have been way off the mark - but the rumours were not completely without foundation. At a recent press conference in Beijing, Li denied he was going to turn into a monk but said he was in talks to make a movie called A Monk in New York. New York, Tibet, hey, what's the difference?
