NEW YORK - Jackie Chan is ready to share more sto­ries about his amaz­ing life and ca­reer. The star of block­busters such as “Rush Hour” and “Kung Fu Panda” has a mem­oir com­ing out in Novem­ber. Gallery Books told The As­so­ci­ated Press on Thursday that “Never Grow Up” is a “candid” ac­count of ev­ery­thing from his youth with the China Drama Acad­emy to his “nu­mer­ous” near-death ex­pe­ri­ences on and off cam­era. The 64-year-old Chan will also write about mak­ing movies in Hong King and Hol­ly­wood and of his im­per­fec­tions as a fam­ily man, ac­cord­ing to Gallery, a Si­mon & Schus­ter im­print. Chan’s other films in­clude a re­make of “The Karate Kid” and the “Po­lice Story” se­ries. His pre­vi­ous books in­clude “I Am Jackie Chan: My Life in Ac­tion,” a mem­oir pub­lished in 1998.
