Jackie Chan is hoping to film the fourth installment of the Rush Hour franchise in 2018. "Tomorrow we're meeting with the director and Chris Tucker and make sure we're going on the right track". The film launched two sequels - Rush Hour 2 in 2001 and Rush Hour 3 in 2007 - both directed by Ratner. The recent "Rush Hour" TV series which went down like a lead balloon, showing that without the two power-house comedians, the franchise just doesn't work.
While Rush Hour may be Chan's most famous movie to American audiences, he recently acknowledged that he was getting older (he's 63-years-old) and that he doesn't want to continue doing the same types of films. Rush Hour you can do any time...
"For the last seven years, we turned down the script", said Chan on why it has taken so long, highlighting that it's not about the money, but about timing.
In the first interview, Chan said: "A few years ago, Karate Kid". Yesterday, we just agreed... the script, probably end of this month. Then in 2015, he reemerged briefly for his own stand-up special on Netflix. The only thing that they need to do is to have Tucker agree to come back. I never stop working. "I'm touring around the world-Australia, the Middle East, Asia, Malaysia, Singapore". I got to travel with Bill Clinton through Africa, which was an incredible experience. But that hasn't stopped people from pushing forward with another movie.
Fans also agree that there needs to be another Rush Hour, and the sooner the better!
