Jackie Chan's next movie, "Dragon Blade," will focus on war. The actor will be joined by Hollywood stars John Cusack and Adrien Brody. A video showing the making of the film -- featuring its massive production sets and some action sequences -- excites fans.

"Dragon Blade" movie tells the story of a lost group of Roman soldiers who have to make their way through China. Adrien Brody plays the role of the Roman general Tiberius, who has set his sights on uniting all the nations along the Silk Road. The Silk Road is an ancient trade route that connected the East and the West.

A video showing the making of "Dragon Blade" can be seen on YouTube. The video shows the massive scale of production sets of the movie. The director can be seen working with some of the cast members and shooting large battle scenes.

The video shows that the producers have chosen not to focus on computer animation for the sets. Viewers can also see some of the concept arts of the movie that were later developed into actual sets. The film appears to have been mostly shot in a mountainous region with arid climate.

Jackie Chan can be seen alongside both Chinese troops as well as Roman troops in the video. The video shows the actor nursing his wounds after getting injured in a fight sequence. One of the filming locations also had some harsh winds that the cast and crew had to endure while filming the movie.

Jackie Chan can also be seen assisting the director in shooting some of the action sequences. One of the scenes in the video also shows that the director used a drone in order to help in coordinating a battle scene in the desert involving a large number of warriors on horseback.

Jackie Chan was previously seen in a mediaeval war movie in the 2010 "Little Big Soldier." One of his co-stars, Peng Lin, from "Dragon Blade" also featured in that movie. Jackie Chan's next movie will be released in both Mandarin as well as English. The movie is set to be released in February 2015 in China. The release date information for the international market has still not been made available by the producers.
