Jaycee Chan, son of Jackie Chan, says he will not star in his father's new film Chinese Zodiac.

The 29-year-old singer/actor made the announcement during a recent promotional activity for Lee's Adventure, a romantic film he leads.

Jackie Chan has been working on Chinese Zodiac for decades. He said it will be his last kungfu flick. He also told a recent news conference he will try to persuade his son to join the cast.

Jaycee, however, says he will not appear in the film, because he's concerned people would think he got the role just because of his father.

Lee's Adventure, which infuses action scenes with animation, premiered earlier this month.
