The fourth Rush Hour movie was in the works with both Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan set to return. The duo first united for Rush Hour in 1998.
While stopping by ESPN’s podcast The Plug earlier this week, Tucker officially confirmed that Rush Hour 4 is in the works. “We’re working on it now,” Tucker told the hosts, confirming both he and Chan are returning for the sequel. He wouldn’t spill any further details, but did call it “the rush of all rushes.” OK, I can get behind that.
Last October, Chan said that he has been turning down scripts for the sequel for the past seven years, but finally landed on one he was happy with. A second draft of the script was in the works then, and Chan said production could kick off as soon as this year, which seems likely now after Tucker’s confirmation.
The Rush Hour movies have made a combined $849.7 million at the box office.
