Jackie Chan wants to see a script for Rush Hour 4

08.15.2014

It’s been over two years since we last heard about the possibility of another RUSH HOUR and I can’t say I’ve been holding my breath. It’s been seven years since RUSH HOUR 3 and to be very honest, I’ve never heard anyone say they wanted another sequel. So now it’s out there again as Jackie Chan says the studio wants to make another sequel but they don’t have a script and until they do he’s not interested. So he would be interested if there was a script? Tough negotiating there Jackie.

While in London England promoting CHINESE ZODIAC, Jackie Chan was asked by TV host Jonathan Ross if RUSH HOUR 4 will ever happen:

"Lately they want to make Rush Hour 4. I said ‘No, show me the script first. I don’t need another Rush Hour 4. You need Rush Hour 4. Show me the script.’ I don’t want to do a rubbish script just because they want to make the movie."

I’m surprised and delighted to hear Jackie Chan actually cares about the creative process this time around. Although part of me thinks he couldn’t have read the script for RUSH HOUR 3 and thought it was worthy of his talent and time; so maybe he’s getting to be more picky later in his career? Now if only Nicholas Cage aged.

I think I know the overwhelming answer, but BAD BOYS 3 or RUSH HOUR 4?

ironically...

didn't jackie chan originally pass, or not understand the original Rush Hour script?

Jackie should team up with Bruce Willis on a Supercop x Die Hard crossover.

Sounds like he DOES NOT want to do RH4...

That's good news. the last two Rush Hour movies sucked.

I've fallen back in love with Jackie after I watched his last two Chinese movies (Police Story 2013 and Chinese Zodiac).

It seems his American movie making days are over, when he is making movies in China you can tell he has that love for the art, instead of trying to pander to the youngest American demographic. I really suggest everyone go out and find Police Story 2013, its possibly his best movie ever.

If you've been following him for the past couple of years, he's stated he's tired of making these kinds of movies. And it's shown in his career. In fact, besides CZ12, his last full out martial arts film was Forbidden Kingdom. Since, he has been doing more dramatic or comedic stuff, like Shinjuku Incident, Little Big Soldier, and 1911. Also taking into account that he's 60 now, it's no wonder he wants to get away from this stuff. I believe him when he says he wants a good script and I would

I believe him when he says he wants a good script and I would even believe he probably doesn't actually want to do another Rush Hour movie. But, of course, money goes a long way.

The truth is Jacky really doesn't need another crappy Hollywood movie, and neither does his fans.

CORRECTION

Jackie Chan wants to see a CHECK for Rush Hour 4. I kid I kid, I love Jackie . But if those involved were smart they'd go the Pryor/Wilder route and create a non sequel totally different story with Jackie snd Chris.

Bad Boys For Life!

I'm a Bad Boys guy myself, the first one is one of the best buddy cop movies since the heyday of the genre in the mid-eighties. Martin Lawrence and Will Smith have great chemistry and those films are the best thing Michael Bay has ever done. The original Rush Hour is also great with Chris Tucker in his prime and Jackie Chan still able to do some cool action sequences; the second one is also pretty good but I remember the third being godawful and frankly I don't even remember if I watched the
I'm a Bad Boys guy myself, the first one is one of the best buddy cop movies since the heyday of the genre in the mid-eighties. Martin Lawrence and Will Smith have great chemistry and those films are the best thing Michael Bay has ever done. The original Rush Hour is also great with Chris Tucker in his prime and Jackie Chan still able to do some cool action sequences; the second one is also pretty good but I remember the third being godawful and frankly I don't even remember if I watched the entire thing due to quality or it simply being forgettable. Rush Hour is all about the mix of Chris Tucker carrying the comedy side by improvising hilarious one liners and Jackie Chan carrying the action side by doing some cool action sequences, I honestly don't know if either is capable of that anymore which means the success of the film will likely rest a lot more on Brett Ratner's directing ability...so I think I'll pass. Unless Ratner would just produce and they could get a really cool action director like Gareth Evans or a director that can mix action and comedy like James Gunn or Edgar Wright but I can't see either of those guys jumping on board the fourth installment of a tired, irrelevant series like Rush Hour.

Haha Jackie. You funny. Didn't know those Rush Hour movies won awards for best screenplay. Oh and fyi Jack... YOU NEED a Rush Hour 4.

I meant he's hasn't been doing much lately and that comment about a good script sounded so pretentious. None of those movies had good scripts so seriously- wtf is he talking about?

No, Jackie, no Rush Hour 4. Rush Hour 2 was alright but I hate Rush Hour 3. So no Rush Hour 4 for me.

I thought he's repeatedly said that he's sick and tired of that franchise? He's also said that he wants to back away from leading action roles. I think the right way to go would be to take on more mentor-type characters, just instead of Jaden Smith, a young Asian-American actor like Harry Shum Jr. or Brandon Soo Hoo could be his protege on-screen instead.
