Walt Disney Pictures

Like Mike Todd's version, this new one underwritten by developer Philip Anschutz has many star cameos including one by our governor, but in addition to Jackie Chan in one major role, in another it has energetically hilarious British TV personality Steve Coogan (check out "24 Hour Party People").
