‘Rush Hour’ Isn’t Over Yet
“We’re working on a few things on the script right now, so we’re trying to get into production. But we’re working on it and trying to get it going. Jackie Chan wants to do it, I want to do it, [the] studio wants to do it, so we’re trying to get it together.”
Yes, yes and yes.
We understand the words coming out of Chris Tucker’s mouth.
The hilarious Chris Tucker (Detective Carter) recently commented about a ‘Rush Hour 4’ movie and indicates that he and his action costar Jackie Chan (Chief Inspector Lee) are ready to reprise their roles.
This is a good day.
Hopefully, the search for a new director for the fourth installment in this popular ‘Rush Hour’ film series has already been underway and, at best, already determined. The next hope is that this fourth movie will materialize in the near future–the next year or so–with the original humor and action stunts from the first three yet with a fresh and successful take that will spark a fifth and sixth film to round out two trilogies of sorts.
If ‘The Fast and the Furious’ can have double-digit movies, then ‘Rush Hour’ can certainly be resurrected for a few more.
And in this age of absurd hyper-political correctness, we need Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan to team up once more to remind us to relax, have fun and just laugh.
