Months after Jackie Chan teased a possible “Rush Hour” reunion, Chris Tucker has confirmed the unexpected sequel is officially in the works.
Last October, Chan said he wanted to team up with Tucker one last time “before we get old.” Now Tucker says, “It’s definite. It’s happening,” Fox News reports.
“This is going to be the one. The rush of all rushes,” Tucker told ESPN’s “The Plug” on Wednesday. “Jackie is ready and we want to do this so that people won’t ever forget this.”
It’s been more than 10 years since “Rush Hour 3” went to theaters, so the fourth installment is long overdue. Chan reportedly turned down scripts for a fourth run for years but finally agreed to do one more if Tucker signed on as well.
“Rush Hour 4, we’re all like old men,” Chan joked back in October. “Before we get old, I tell Chris Tucker, before we get old, please do the Rush Hour 4.”
Finally, Detectives James Carter and Detective Inspector Lee are getting back together.
