Chris Tucker developing Rush Hour 4
Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker are working on putting Rush Hour 4 together. Don't expect Friday 4, mind...
The Rush Hour movies have made a staggering amount of money. Notwithstanding the fact that Rush Hour 3 was one of the laziest blockbuster sequels we can remember seeing, the union of Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan, under the stewardship of director Brett Ratner, has been responsible for well over a billion dollars of revenue.
It's unsurprising, therefore, that talk of Rush Hour 4 keeps cropping up, even though Chris Tucker barely appears in any movies at all. In fact, his appearance in the incoming The Silver Linings Playbook is the first film he's appeared in that's not a Rush Hour movie since 1997's Jackie Brown.
While doing promotional duties for the movie, the question of Rush Hour 4 cropped up, and Tucker confirmed that it's something he's working on. "We're looking into it, me and Jackie [Chan]", he told Vulture. "We're trying to get it going, so we're developing something, so hopefully we'll get something in".
Whether Brett Ratner remains involved we'll discover in due course. His slate of projects is hardly empty.
Chris Tucker also, incidentally, ruled out the rumoured Friday 4. He has, however, shot a new film about stand-up comedy, which sounds a lot more interesting than a Rush Hour sequel.
