If you’ve been sitting around for the past decade hoping that Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker would eventually return to the world of Rush Hour, you may be in luck.

Speaking with The San Francisco Chronicle, Chan Confirmed the development of a Rush Hour 4, saying:

“Good news. Next year. Rush Hour 4. I hope the script is done. Day after tomorrow, we’re meeting with the director and Chris Tucker, and make sure we’re going on the right track.”

While Jackie Chan was already a mainstream star by 1998, thanks to his film Rumble in the Bronx, the film that perhaps launched him to the next level was Rush Hour. Co-starring Chris Tucker, Rush Hour brought with it a great mix of action and comedy, and allowed Chan to appeal to a much wider audience — those who may not have been exposed to or a fan of foreign films.

Sadly, While Rush Hour 2 was a solid follow-up, 2007’s Rush Hour 3 was a huge swing and a miss for the franchise. Luckily, it sounds like Chan is at the stage in his career where he’s become more discerning of the films he’s starring in. In that same interview with The San Francisco Chronicle, he expressed the sentiment that if the script wasn’t right for his movies, they’d put a stop to the film. Hopefully that’ll be the case if Rush Hour 4 isn’t up to stop.

Given that Brett Ratner was the man responsible for helming the first three films, we can only assume he’d take on the role again for the sequel. We’ll have to wait and see how this pans out.
