This week, Chris revealed fans could start getting hyped up for a sequel to 2007’s Rush Hour 3.
Chris Tucker appeared on ESPN’s podcast The Plug. Tucker was asked if him and Jackie Chan would team up ever again for the Rush Hour franchise, to which Tucker replied, “It’s happening. This is gonna be the rush of all rushes.” Tucker continued, “Jackie is ready and we want to do this so that people don’t ever forget it.” (Planet-Aviation)

Last year, Jackie Chan dished on his intent to make a Rush Hour 4 movie happen.
In October 2017, Chan confirmed rumors of the movie’s return in an interview with “The Cruz Show” on Power 106 LA, the Daily Mail reported. After several years of turning down scripts, Chan said they finally agreed on one. But it was contingent on Tucker agreeing, he said. “Rush Hour 4, we’re all like old men,” Chan said. “Before we get old, I tell Chris Tucker, before we get old, please do the Rush Hour 4.” (Fox News)
A few years ago, Bad Boy Records’ Diddy hilariously starred in a Rush Hour 4 spoof video.
Two late-’90s action classics get a modern-day makeover thanks to Funny or Die, who posted a new movie parody titled, confusingly enough, Rush Hour 4: Face/Off 2. Sean “P. Diddy” Combs (Draft Day) takes over for Chris Tucker as Detective Carter, while Korean superstar Byung-Hun Lee (Terminator Genisys) stands in for Jackie Chan’s Lee as they, for reasons mysterious even to them, switch faces with each other to take on a criminal empire.

Puffy previously teased fans about something stirring up with the franchise.
