It's been a long 10 years since the dynamic duo of Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker teamed up in the Rush Hour series, but rumors have been circulating that the two will reunite to create a brand new Rush Hour film. So, what does Chan have to say about it?
In a recent appearance on Power 106's The Cruz Show, #JackieChan revealed that the Rush Hour 4 script is good to go. The catch? It sounds like #ChrisTucker is still deciding whether he likes the story.
Apparently the movie has been in the pipeline for seven years now, but the delays are due to a lack of agreement between the cast and producers on where to take the story next. Here's what Chan had to say:
"For the last seven years, we've been turning down the script, turning down the script. Yesterday, we just agreed. ... The script probably at the end of this month will have a second draft, and next year, probably [we will] start. I hope — if Chris Tucker agrees. ... I tell Chris Tucker, ‘Before we get old, please do Rush Hour 4.'"
Rush Hour first hit screens in 1998. It was followed by two sequels in 2001 and 2007. Last year, a spinoff sitcom aired on CBS, but was canceled after one season due to a poor reception.
Fans would love to see Chan and Tucker reunite, so hopefully the new draft of the screenplay will satisfy both stars and we'll see Detective Carter and Chief Inspector Lee back together soon.
