Jackie Chan wants Chris Tucker for ‘Rush Hour 4’


Jackie Chan fans, rejoice! There may be a fourth ‘Rush Hour’ movie on its way. In a recent interview, the 63-year-old actor has revealed a sequel to the hit movies is most likely to happen.

The filming could start as early as next year, but there’s a catch. Chan wants his original ‘Rush Hour’ co-star Chris Tucker to be back for the fourth part. He said, “For the last 20 years, I’ve tried different [characters]. A few years ago, ‘Karate Kid’. There was supposed to be a Karate Kid 2, but the script isn’t right. Several years later they want to do it and I say, ‘You still want to do Karate Kid? No, Karate Men.’ They’re taller than me now! Rush Hour, you can do any time. Next year!”

Adding, “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, [we’ll] probably start. If, Chris Tucker agrees.”
