Chan & Tucker again?

04.14.2008

Jackie Chan & Chris Tucker Jackie Chan doesn't like middle men. Especially when they prevent him from teaming up with people onscreen. "In the old days, we didn’t need a push from a middleman," he recently told MTV Movies Blog, adding "F**k those a**holes!" Only he didn't say the last part.

Needless to say, it's these middle men that have kept him from working with fellow Asian icon Jet Li until now (in the upcoming fantasy marital arts epic THE FORBIDDEN KINGDOM) and now that he's decided he wants to work with Chris Tucker in a non RUSH HOUR film, he's gonna make sure those degenerate middle men get on the ball.

"I said yes, and after I shook [Tucker’s] hand, I said: ‘Look, we need a middleman. I don’t want to shake hands, then I go back to Hong Kong and you stay here, I get busy and you get busy. You have to have somebody in the middle to follow up, otherwise it will never happen. We’ve just agreed to do it. Now we’re looking for the writer,” is what he had to say about getting those middle men to shape up.

Is this film gonna happen anytime soon? Not likely. Not if the middle men have anything to say about it.

Only good in...

Friday? So has no one seen "Jackie Brown"? How can anypne forget Tucker's character in this film is beyond me. He's absolutely hilarious! Im all for this even though a chose neutral. I would love to see Chan and Tucker together without all the b.s. that ratner put them through with the 3 film. The stress between them and the production team really fucked that movie up. Maybe with some new, creative freedom we will see an awesome film that kicks rush hours ass. As for Forbidden Kingdom: You

If Tucker doesn't work with someone other than Chan or Ratner, his whole body will combust into millons of little pieces. You will never see Tucker in a Fincher or a Scorase film because he really loves his chinse and his down syndrome buddies.

Why does Tucker make so much?

That is a bad Idea. I will never understand what is so great about the Rush Hour movies or how Chris Tucker gets 20 mil a pic? He has never been a box office draw except for Rush Hour. Besides that he was only good in "Friday" anyway. Off topic about the new Chan/Li pic "Forbidden Kingdom." What pisses me off is the way all the advertisements are touting the whole Chan/Li connection and making it look like it will be some cool period piece like "Crouching Tiger, or "Hero!" If you read what

If you read what it is about some frieking white kid ends up in the past trying to help them out. I'm willing to bet that everyone that sees this are going to be PO'd because all the ads are nothing like this almost certain lame film will be. It's too bad too because the whole Chan/Li thing would be cool... if it was 5-8 years ago that is and w/out a time traveling white kid!

Who knows how this Chan/ Tucker thing'll turn out but I hope that Sinatra story isn't true. Ratner truly sniffs the anus.

Seeing Chan and Tucker as anything but Lee and Carter would be weird.

Forbidden Kingdom looks like fun, surprisingly.
