Chris Tucker teased his return alongside Jackie Chan for Rush Hour 4 when Chan first revealed that another sequel was in the works. In 2018, Tucker corroborated his comments and began hyping up the fourth film as “the rush of all rushes.”.
The sequel has been in talks since 2017, but development has been held up by Brett Ratner’s sexual assault and harassment allegations, being accused of sexual assault and harassment by several actors, including Olivia Munn, Natasha Henstridge, and Elliot Page
Warner Bros. severed ties with Ratner, leading to the search for a new director for the fourth instalment.
You’re going to see a lot of good stuff coming, but it’s going to be on a whole other level. That’s what I like…I’m excited about that. It’s not going to be what you’ve normally seen… Rush Hour 4, that’s something I definitely will probably drop in there because I love working with Jackie, but I’ve got some new stuff that I think you’re really gonna like. I’m excited about it.Chris Tucker

Despite Chan and Tucker’s comments, it is unclear if development was resumed or restarted when Rush Hour 4 was announced again by Chan last December
With both lead stars now at least tentatively attached to Rush Hour 4, the long-awaited sequel appears to be finally coming together. However, it’s understandable if fans are cautiously optimistic considering Chan and Tucker’s comments have yet to lead to tangible results.
