Jackie Chan Confirms Rush Hour 4
A new Rush Hour movie is in development!
Rush Hour 4 Has Been Confirmed By Jackie Chan!
Chan confirmed their wishes are coming through in an interview with the San Francisco Chronicle. The action legend was there to promote his new film The Foreigner, and during the Facebook video chat he answered a fan question regarding a potential fourth Rush Hour. Chan said, "Good news. Next year, Rush Hour 4, and I hope the script done. And day after tomorrow we meet the director and Chris Tucker again to make sure we go the right track.” Rush Hour was released in 1998 and introduced many to the action superstar. The film was directed by Brett Ratner who also helmed two sequels in 2001 and 2007. Chan co-stars with Chris Tucker in the films which have the two teaming up to solve crimes but things are challenging since one is a serious, deadly Chinese detective and the other is a fast-talking, loud-mouthed cop with the LAPD. Their chemistry is fantastic onscreen which is what made the simple plot of the films so popular and enjoyable. Tucker has also expressed his interest in returning for another movie. It's been ten years since we've seen them together onscreen, so it'll be fun to see what kind of story they come up with for the fourth film.
The Rush Hour series were created by Ross LaManna, directed by Brett Ratner, produced by Roger Birnbaum, Jonathan Glickman, Arthur M. Sarkissian, Jay Stern, Robert Birnbaum, and Michael Poryes, and written by LaManna, Jim Kauf, and Jeff Nathanson. The films were released into theaters in 1998, 2001, and 2007. They have grossed at worldwide total of $850 million and received mostly positive reviews. There is currently no confirmed release date for the fourth film. No director or writers have been announced yet. However, if they begin shooting next year it will most likely be released in 2019.
