Jackie Chan has finally revealed his role in Rush Hour 4 after a protracted period of no updates. The actor, who is working on a sequel with Chris Tucker, revealed that he has started negotiations for a role in the movie. About the forthcoming sequel, nothing else is currently known.
Recently, Jackie Chan attended the Red Sea International Film Festival. The significant event is taking place in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, and it began on December 1 and will last until December 10. He gave fans exciting new information about the Rush Hour movies during his appearance at the festival. The fourth Rush Hour installment, he revealed, is currently being discussed. He also revealed during the festival that he would be making “less action stories, more love stories” in the future.
He said, “We’re talking about part 4 right now,” and added that he will be meeting with the film’s director today evening to go over the screenplay, according to Deadline. He didn’t say who the director was by name. But for the uninitiated, Brett Ratner helmed the first three iterations of the film. The actor discussed his several failed attempts to go to Hollywood and the reasons behind his decision to stop acting in Hollywood productions. He continued, “I tried so many times to go to Hollywood, but after that, I said no more Hollywood because my English is not good, they’re not my culture, they don’t like this kind of action.”
The film centers around a Hong Kong detective who is assigned to work on an international crime case with an outspoken LAPD cop. The two men end up forming a close bond despite being so drastically different from one another and driving each other crazy along the way. There have been rumours about the upcoming fourth instalment of the “Rush Hour” franchise for a while now. Tucker revealed that he was on board the following year, after Jackie Chan confirmed that he had agreed on a script in 2017. Tucker had previously stated that the fourth instalment would be “the rush of all rushes” and that they wished to provide the audience with a unique and memorable experience.
