It’s been 10 years since the last Rush Hour movie hit the big screens and we saw Lee and Carter take down a bunch of bad guys and finally, it looks like the wait is over.
Last year, Jackie Chan who plays Lee in the franchise confirmed that ‘Rush Hour 4’ was in the works, and now we finally get confirmation from the other half of the crime fighting duo, Chan’s co-star Chris Tucker who plays Carter has confirmed the production of the fourth installment in the Rush Hour series.
In an appearance on ESPN’s podcast The Plug, Tucker was asked if he and Jackie Chan would ever team up again for the Rush Hour franchise, to which Tucker replied, “It’s happening. This is gonna be the rush of all rushes.” Tucker continued, “Jackie is ready and we want to do this so that people don’t ever forget it.”
Last year, Jackie Chan stated “For the last seven years, we’ve been turn[ing] down. turn[ing] down the script. But yesterday we agreed.” As part of that statement, Chan said Tucker was still undecided at the time but following Tucker’s latest comments it seems everyone is on board and ready to shoot Rush Hour 4.
