Jackie Chan provides a significant update for Rush Hour 4

Rush Hour 4 is getting an update from Jackie Chan. In an interview with the actor at the Red Sea Film Festival, he discussed the status of the beloved series. “I got a phone call. [Director] Brett Ratner and Chris Tucker call me from New York.

They’re crazy. We were $70 million in the first weekend,” Chan recalled. “For me, I don’t know how to count”.

“We’re talking about Rush Hour 4 right now,” he added.

“It’s happening,” Tucker said on ESPN’s The Plug podcast.

“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”. The Rush Hour 4 project was discussed by Tucker on the Winging It podcast two years ago.

"We're working on a few things on the script right now, so we're trying to get into production," Tucker explained back then. "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."

Here is how Apple describes the series if you wish to catch up:

"With a combined box-office gross of nearly a billion dollars worldwide, the Rush Hour films have become pop culture classics.

Now, Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan are3 back in their respective roles as LAPD detective James Carter and Chinese Chief Inspector Lee with director Brett Ratner (Rush Hour franchise, X-Men: The Last Stand) on board for the latest installment of the wildly popular franchise." "Set in Paris, Rush Hour 3 finds Tucker and Chan's misfit partners from West and East battling a wing of the Chinese organized crime family of the Triads — with their trademark mix of great action and big laughs.

From dazzling Parisian nightclubs to the city's high-fashion runways, Rush Hour 3 promises more action, more comedy and more hilarious adventure than ever!"
