Well, kind of. During an appearance on The Cruz Show, Jackie confirmed that, after seven years, "they" finally stopped turning down the scripts for Rush Hour 4 and that a movie will be made. "Yesterday, we just agreed", he said. "I hope - if Chris Tucker agrees".
"It's not about money". Sarkissian said: "We waited six years to do Rush Hour 3 and if we wait another six years, Jackie is going to be way too exhausted to do this stuff". While 2001's Rush Hour 2 almost doubled the original's take with $226.1 million domestic, $121.1 million foreign, the critically tepid 2007 threequel Rush Hour 3 struck well after the franchise iron was hot, only earning $140.1 million domestic, $117.9 million foreign.
The pair teamed up for three films between 1998 and 2007, with Chan playing Chief Inspector Lee, a no-nonsense Hong Kong cop who reluctantly joins forces with wise-cracking LAPD Detective James Carter (Tucker).
While talking about the challenges of making another Karate Kid considering the characters have aged, Jackie revealed that Rush Hour is much easier to do. Rush Hour 4, we're all like old men! "No, (we're now) Karate Men.' Jaden (is) taller than me now!" He then added, "Rush Hour you can do any time..."
Fans also agree that there needs to be another Rush Hour, and the sooner the better!
At the very least, if it does end up happening, we're going to get a few laughs.
Later, he answered a fan question about the potential sequel by saying, "Good news". There's so much content in the world right now, do we honestly have to contend with a fourth Rush Hour movie?
For his part back in 2012, Chris Tucker told Vulture that he and Jackie were considering the next Rush Hour, "Rush Hour 4, we're looking into it, me and Jackie".
