Rush Hour 3 - the threequel nobody wanted?

The producer of the Rush Hour films has got another one planned. Brett Ratner not necessarily included...

Now here's a sequel we've never heard a single human being ask about. It seems that Rush Hour 4 might just be on the cards. Crikey.

It has been five years since Rush Hour 3, but Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan are apparently keen to return. And the film's producer,  Arthur Sarkissian, has been talking about the plans to reunite them. "I'm trying to do it closer to how I did Rush Hour 1, more down to earth", he revealed. "More gritty. Introduce two new characters and make it real the way the first one was. I personally was not happy with the third one. I thought 1 and 2 were very good. I think 3 got out of hand a little bit. It's not a matter of just bringing them back to do another segment of that or a sequel to it by putting them in another city and having them bicker. I don't want that. I want something new.".

He also spoke about the prospect of director Brett Ratner returning: "He's more than welcome to do it, but he's got to do it in the right way."

Er, we're not sure what to say to that.

He also spoke of his admiration for Fast Five and his desire to take inspiration from the film: "They kept the characters, they took them and they put them in a whole different world. They put them in the world of a heist movie and it worked... Maybe Chris is now married. Maybe Jackie is married to Octavia Spencer. I don't know. Married to Chris' cousin. They live in Shanghai. Chris goes out to visit them... I want something energetic."
