Not sure. I think I read at one point that they were hoping for an end of year release for this film (which would be an super fast turn around, if that's true). I have a feeling it was something put together for this event, and might not be official yet.
The Foreigner will be directed by Martin Campbell (Casino Royale), a drama which will see Jackie Chan against an Irish mobster (Pierce Brosnan) to get revenge for the death of her daughter killed in an IRA bomb attack. Expect a dramatic interpretation of Chan and a villain who claims not to be a villain from Brosnan. The film which will be released in 2016 is the first co-production of STX with China.

In terms of actor billing, I think he's a co-lead. He's too much of a big name not to receive a co-top billing. In terms of character position, as in the novel, he's a secondary character and the main focus is Chan's Quan character.
