Rush hour 4?

This was probably talked about already as it goes back to 2012 apparently but Jackie Chan has said it's still going forward, Pending Chris Tucker being on board.

Anyone know much about it?

Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker have always said yes but nothing has come out of it for all this time, then again RH3 was similar and only happened randomly so anything is possible.

I would like to see it, counting that the Shanghai series is getting its third film maybe we will see a revival of more American Jackie Chan projects. Rush Hour is likely his most popular mainstream american film and since the TV project died after one season they might want to try a go at the film franchise again.

I love the first film and never liked the second, the third one being ok but I would need to re-watch them all. I also love that the film series is named Rush Hour and the only reference is a piece of dialog that has no baring in the plot or anything whatsoever

Rush Hour 2 was my first DVD, I remember it felt so "futuristic" to own it with its animated menus and what not.

It just came up today but it sounds like it's not going to happen then. I remember liking them but don't remember them well, I'll have to re-watch them.

I remember my first DVD ....how time passes... I do not remember my first VHS

I dont think anything can top the first 2, to be honest.

I'm a big fan of the series & would of course welcome more but here's the thing-

1. Jackie himself does not care for the films. He considers Chris a good friend, had fun, etc. but is not too proud of the material. He's even told his Asian fans not to bother watching them. He has said he'd only do it (if the script & everything made sense) for the sake of his loyal American fanbase, which is nice, but as a hardcore JC fan, I personally wouldn't wanna see him do something he's not into.

2. Jackie's a lot older now. His acting is better than ever, but the stunt work may not be as intense as before. Wouldn't bother me much, but we all know that the action is a big selling point.

3. The third one was not too great. It felt very different tonally/visually, somehow, despite having more or less the right stuff. You can't always recreate the magic.

I'd love to see it, but I don't know how they can make the jokes/humor as funny at this point. After 3 movies they pretty much exhausted all the "black and Asian" jokes they possibly could, as well as French jokes in the third.

I guess they could just focus on making a fun gangster movie or whatever, but they already did focus on Asian Triads in the movie. The third had Jackie's brother as the main villain.

Jackie has a lot of unpopular opinions and changes his mind all the time, he's like a polititian. Jackie has been old for over ten years now and has barely done any action scenes but that was true even in the early 00's which is why many of his movies featured a lot of CG, none of the Rush Hour movies ever featured a lot of martial arts, not even the first one.

The third RH IMO was better than the second one, the chemistry with Chan/Tucker is what made the films so great and I think they can make a movie that will at least be as good as the previous sequels, which are poor but had a few decent things.

I mean it's not like Jackie Chan has been doing anything worthwhile since he left Hollywood in the late 00's. He already tainted the legacy of Police Story not once but twice with those horrible reboots.
