Chris Tucker On Possibility Of Rush Hour 4: "We're Trying To Get It Going"

It’s going on 20 years since New Line Cinema first paired the fastest hands in the east with the biggest mouth in the west, and though a spinoff TV series failed to find its feet, series stalwart Chris Tucker has revealed that Rush Hour 4 is not off the table.

Chatting to Collider to promote Ang Lee’s imminent drama Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, Tucker confirmed that all involved are “trying to get [Rush Hour 4] going,” possibly welcoming the return of Chief Inspector Lee (Jackie Chan) and Detective James Carter (Tucker) for another round of raucous buddy-cop action.

“Yeah, we’re talking about it now doing another one, and we’re trying to get it going. I think we might be able to get one going. I love working with Jackie and I think we could do a really fun one.”

Almost ten years on from the release of Rush Hour 3, the big question looming over Tucker’s revelation is whether the franchise still holds the necessary cachet to warrant another feature film. CBS’ canned series has inevitably tarnished the Rush Hour brand, which failed to pull in much of an audience earlier this year due to its ho-hum story and lackluster chemistry between Justin Hires (Carter) and Jon Foo (Lee). If the franchise does indeed have a future, surely it’s best bet is to reunite Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker on screen, right?

One way or another, we’ll be keeping tabs on Rush Hour 4 as this story develops. Chris Tucker, meanwhile, is among the starry ensemble featured in Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, which has been screening in theaters since November 11.
