BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. -- BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Jackie Chan says his mission is complete.

Chan wrote, directed and stars in "Chinese Zodiac," an action comedy which centers on a team attempting to steal some of the 12 bronze statues looted from a Chinese palace in 1860.

Since the movie was released in China last year, two of the real statues were returned to China by Francois Pinault, head of Gucci's parent company.

The 59-year-old Hong Kong star praised their return, saying he hopes all such looted artifacts can be returned from Western museums.

Chan says he isn't quitting anytime soon. He completed filming on another installment in his "Police Story" franchise and is discussing another movie alongside "Rush Hour" co-star Chris Tucker. He said scheduling conflicts prevented him from joining Sylvester Stallone's "Expendables 3" ensemble.
