Just yesterday, Chris Tucker posted a picture of himself on Instagram and Facebook with Jackie Chan, both holding up a hand with four fingers raised. Does this mean we’re finally getting a Rush Hour 4? Or are the two just teasing?
The franchise started way back in 1998 and after becoming a hit loved by many across the world, New Line Cinema came out with two sequels, both of which earned over $250 million.
It’s been 12 years since the Rush Hour 3 (2007), which makes it pretty obvious why people were freaking out about the image. Celebrities and us regular folk were all screaming in hopes of it being real, comments like, “Don’t be playing with my emotions!” or “Please be serious.” and honestly? That’s a total mood.
The internet lit up with speculations of a comeback after Tucker’s post, especially because the last anyone’s heard of any talk of a continuation to the franchise was in October of 2017, when Chan spoke of a Rush Hour 4 script. But neither Tucker, Chan, nor New Line Cinema offered any further comments on the matter, leaving us all still in the dark.
Although it’s kind of a bummer that there’s been no confirmation from anyone whether or not that image actually meant the return of Rush Hour, we remain hopeful. Everyone wants some good old fun starring Chief Inspector Lee and Detective James Carter but as of now, we’ll just have to wait and see.
