Hey guys! If you have heard of the famous 1990's film series Rush Hour starring Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker, then I have some news for you.
This famous movie series is going to get turned into a TV show by CBS. CBS has put in an official order for a Rush Hour pilot which means action- comedy awesomeness is heading to our TVs soon (or maybe)!
This TV show is being put up by Bill Lawrence, creator of such series as Scrubs and Cougar Town, and Blake McCormick, one of the Cougar Town writers. Looking at the creative team behind that there is hope that this show would be something very cool and worth watching. The original’s director Brett Ratner is on board as an executive producer, so we can anticipate some high grade stuff coming at us.
Well on the coming to the story line front Cinema Blend reports -
The pilot will basically follow the same premise of the first film, which sees a Hong Kong cop making his way to Los Angeles for a big case, and has him paired up with a black LAPD officer who is in no way, shape or form ready to work with a partner. Least of all someone with whom he has very little in common.
On the casting front Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker won't be returning. Sad but, true.
Anyways, as far as casting is concerned I will keep you guys covered as soon as reports come in!
Update**- I just figured out that Kit Simpson Browne from Moviepilot already wrote an article of Rush Hour TV announcement, so this article can be considered as an update regarding the topic!
