Cannes: Jackie Chan Nixes Rush Hour 4
But might do it in a decade

Cannes: Jackie Chan Nixes Rush Hour 4

At a Cannes press conference to hype up his latest movie — globe-spanning treasure-hunting caper Chinese Zodiac — Jackie Chan announced that he’s done with bone-crunching action for good, but added, “In the future I’ll still do Karate Kid 2, Rush Hour 4…”

This statement, combined with the fact that Rush Hour director Brett Ratner flew into France to help his buddy promote Chinese Zodiac, got us wondering whether the fourquel is actually already underway. But when Empire sat down with Chan after the press conference, he made it clear that he won’t be re-uniting with Chris Tucker any time soon.

“No, no, no! I don’t want it to happen at this moment,” he announced, shaking his head furiously. “Probably another five or ten years. Then will be Rush Hour 4 – boom, we’re coming back! And at that time I might retire. Us being old guys might make it a more interesting story. But at this moment I don’t think it’s something I want to do.”

So there you go. Those keen for more culture-clash carnage may have to wait until 2022, by which time it could be less Rush Hour, more Trudge Hour…

Look out for more from Chan in a future issue of Empire.

I hope he's just throwing us off the scent to surprise us in a few months. Jackie also said on facebook that he will still do action movies, he just won't do all of the mental stunts he used to, which is fair enough. More
