Everyone remain calm. We know how upsetting the past decade or so has been without a Rush Hour film. For years, both Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker have expressed their interest in coming back to the roles that made a huge splash in the late-90s, but nothing ever came together.
Like films like Bad Boys For Life, I pretty much resigned myself to the fact that we’d never see this movie actually happen. While that still very well may be the case, there has been another confirmation from actor Chris Tucker. Speaking with The Plug, he confirmed the film, saying:
“‘It’s happening. We’re working on it. This is gonna be the rush of all rushes. Jackie is ready and we want to do this so that people don’t ever forget it.”
Again, this great news for those who have been waiting, but there’s one huge question mark…who replaces Brett Ratner. For those who don’t know, Ratner is the man who directed all three films so far, and if you haven’t heard, he’s since come under fire for sexual misconduct and sexist behavior. In the wake of the allegations, his Ratpac Entertainment company has been pulled from their partnership with Warner Bros. and DC Films.
So with Ratner’s production company being kept at arm’s length, there’s no way they’re going to be letting him close to the Rush Hour 4 set. This is a great opportunity, as it leads the way for a potentially great director to take the helm here…but who could it be?
