Chris Tucker teases appearance in ‘Rush Hour 4’
During a recent interview with V-103 in Atlanta, Tucker talked about returning to the big screen. It’s been over fifteen years since Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker had their last Rush Hour.
The hosts asked if he’s “back working now,” and 51-year-old Tucker replied, “I wanna work till I drop now. I traveled the world over and over again...now I’m ready to work. You’re gonna see a lot of good stuff coming, but it’s gonna be on a whole ’nother level. That’s what I like about it, I’m excited about that, it’s not gonna be what you’ve normally seen. … Now, Rush Hour 4, that’s something I definitely will probably drop in there, ’cause I love working with Jackie. But I’ve got some new stuff I think y’all really gonna like.”
In late 2022, Jackie Chan confirmed the film is currently in development. The extent of Chan and Tucker’s involvement remain to be seen, as well as the director replacing Brett Ratner, who has since been accused of sexual assault and harassment and is no longer involved with Warner Bros.
Rush Hour premiered in 1998; its sequels hit in 2001 and ’07. After Rush Hour 3, Tucker wasn’t seen onscreen for more than five years, when he did Silver Linings Playbook. Between that heavily Oscar-nominated film and this year’s Air, he only appeared in 2016’s Billy Flynn’s Long Halftime Walk.
