When he’s not busy on set trying to keep Chris Tucker’s voice from damaging anyone’s hearing and keeping all the other elements of Rush Hour 3 motoring in Europe, Brett Ratner is looking to his next film.

He’s attached to direct a currently untitled heist drama pitched by Eddie Murphy, which would see Murphy and Chris Rock as Trump Tower caretakers in New York who plot to rob the building’s super-rich tenants.

Bill Collage and Adam Cooper scribbled the first draft and now Inside Man scribe Russell Gewitz is on board for a fresh take. It’ll apparently feature some of the clever, twisty plotting that Inside Man boasted, yet it’s also "an unsuccessful, oh-so-last-millennium high-tech heist that is pointedly juxtaposed against the decidedly low-tech but no less artful plot of a couple of blue-collar guys with much more to gain and more believable motives.” Or so Gewitz told the LA Times.
