Being a producer
Other than starring as the lead in many kung-fu movies, Jet Li also setup his first film company in 1993. He took on the role of the producer, and produced the Fong Sai Yuk movie series with himself as the male lead and Josephine Siao as his counterpart. Subsequently, he also co-produced the movie Black Mask with old friend Tsui Hark and the movie got dubbed into English. This particular film caught Hollywood’s eyes.
