Jackie Chan refutes rumours about Rush Hour 4
Social media was abuzz with rumours regarding these two films after Tucker posted a picture with Chan on his Instagram account
With respect to recent reports that Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker might soon join hands for Rush Hour 4 and Karate Kid 2, Jackie Chan's management company has come out with a press statement clarifying that all such speculations are false and baseless.
Social media was abuzz with rumours regarding these two films after Tucker posted a picture with Chan on his Instagram account, where the actors are seen standing together and holding up four fingers each to the camera. Tucker had also earlier revealed, in a podcast, that they were working on a script for Rush Hour 4 and will go into production once it was ready. This led to speculation that the project might be going on floors soon.
However, with the statement from Chan's team, it appears that there are no immediate plans for another instalment of to the popular buddy cop franchise. Incidentally, one of the biggest roadblocks facing the fourth instalment, if and when it does get green-lit, is that every film in the franchise has been directed by Brett Ratner, who has been accused of multiple instances of sexual harassment and abuse.
