Is New Line Cinema considering shooting Rush Hour 4 back-to-back with Rush Hour 3?

Jet Lee is making a movie WITH jackie chan, but i dont believe it is in the Rush Hour movies. They haven't released any information on it besides that jet lee is going to star in it.

isnt jet lee supposed to be in this film?

I don't think so. It would be funny if they got owen wilson and ben stiller in it though. Really original idea.

Rush Hour 3 is taking place in Paris, Can't wait until this film comes out.

van damme.[edit]

I moved Van Damme to 'rumored', as it seems to be widely reguarded as nothing more than that, also IMDB removed him from the roster.

Trivia Section??[edit]

It's the exact same trivia as seen on Rush Hour 3's IMDB trivia page. It doesn't need to be here, if you can just read it from there...--Pix88 (talk) 01:31, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

How about Herman Cain then? Hcobb (talk) 03:31, 18 November 2011 (UTC)


I'm hosting a better quality quicktime version of the teaser trailer, but it seems people love the youtube version? Nr1moviefan Nr1moviefan 14:06, 13 March 2007 (UTC)


It is very troubling that when an actor such as Tom Cruise makes unique salary demands, this is a fake movie it's not an issue. However, Chris Tucker is vain for realizing that he is 50% responsible for the previous films' success.

Even if that was interesting, it's not appropriate to post here. WP:SOAP Faithlessthewonderboy 13:14, 24 July 2007 (UTC)


Anyone know the reason why there has been a delay between rush hour 2 and 3? MatthewCHS 16:00, 12 August 2006 (UTC)

Negotiations with Chris Tucker took longer than one might expect. I'd recommend looking for such information at Yahoo! Movies, this discussion is not appropriate for Wikipedia. Faithlessthewonderboy 13:18, 24 July 2007 (UTC)

NO Yao Ming[edit]

For the last time, Yao Ming was NEVER attached to this film -- quit posting his name on the cast list. It was a rumor during pre-production that IMDB never removed from the list. Originally, Brett Ratner wanted Yao Ming to appear in the film to recreate the Kareem Abdul Jabbar v. Bruce Lee scene in the Game of Death. Yao Ming declined due to his desire to focus on basketball. And, in China, Yao Ming is considered a sports hero -- they would never allow him to play a villain. Instead, Sun Ming Ming, a basketball hopeful, has signed on in his place. It has been confirmed since September 2006.

Here are the sources:

Sun Ming Ming on set re-creating the Game of Death sequence as shown in this Rush Hour 3 youtube hosted MTV exclusive interview...

August 10?[edit]

Will it really come out that soon? Khoikhoi 02:16, 8 January 2007 (UTC)

Never mind, I guess it will. :-) Khoikhoi 03:44, 8 January 2007 (UTC)

what about Kobe Bryant is he gonna be in it?

Development hell[edit]

Why isn't there anything about the prolonged schedule and hang-ups? It's only been seven years. Wasn't Tucker adamant about doing the sequel? hbdragon88 03:50, 11 April 2007 (UTC)

Probably 'cause it's not worth an editor's time and devotion to flesh out a relatively unimportant film. —Erik (talkcontribreview) - 03:55, 11 April 2007 (UTC)
Oh, that does it! I'm now going to spend the next half-hour to find the sources to flesh this film out! hbdragon88 03:58, 11 April 2007 (UTC)
I think (and this is a theory) the 3rd movie was supposed to take place in New York (as the ending of the 2nd suggested) but due to 9/11, the development team had to change locations and it took them a while to get Paris.


On 'The Numbers' it says that Rush Hour 3 has a $180,000,000 so is it alright to add that. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 23:47, 10 May 2007 (UTC).

Sure, go for it. —Erik (talkcontrib) - 23:48, 10 May 2007 (UTC)
Does The-Numbers give a source? Box Office Mojo and The-Numbers are just like IMDb, they are user submitted information. I know, because I'm the one that supplied The-Numbers with the correct (Singer verified) Superman Returns budget they have listed.  BIGNOLE  (Contact me) 01:03, 11 May 2007 (UTC)


What happen to the plotline? Was that accurate?

the plot is really confusing and hard to follow...someone should change that. i would but i haven't seen the movie.

Unfortunately, the word "unfortunately" is entirely opinionated, and has unfortunately been included several times throughout the plot summary.
Sana 06:55, 12 August 2007 (UTC)

Is the Plot Summary too long?[edit]

I have plac't the long plot summary tag on the article. Remove it if I am wrong. Marlith T/C 20:45, 12 August 2007 (UTC)

I've since trimmed the plot section down a bit and removed the tag. I think it works now, as the story is more than a bit convoluted at times. Cinemaniac (talkcontribscritique) 02:02, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

Reception section[edit]

I must admit, I find the reception section of the article to be overwhelmingly negative. In fact, the only really positive criticism I read there was actually ironically negative. I think we need to balance that section out a bit. For instance, most of the critics really liked the addition of the George character, and I really liked his nuanced looks of satisfaction during the car chase, too. Maybe we should add some comments from the critics about that? Cinemaniac (talkcontribscritique) 00:09, 18 February 2008 (UTC)


Why does Lee -- a Hong Kong cop -- have a Japanese brother? They also speak Japanese together in a few scenes. Was this perhaps explained in the previous movies? Tebello TheWHAT!!?? 20:19, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

Rush Hour 4 is a possible sequal[edit]

Rush Hour 4 is a possible sequal to the other Rush Hour Films with Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker. There will be a confirm to the other cast members like Danny DeVitto and Jet Li. Rush Hour 4 is coming soon in 2012. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:35, 9 November 2009 (UTC)

Genevieve about to kill Carter[edit]

Why was Genevieve pulling out a weapon (I believe a small pistol but I didn't see very well) when seducing Carter? (talk) 05:46, 25 May 2010 (UTC)

Continuity Problem[edit]

I removed the section about the continuity of the character Soo Yung being older than she should be in this film, it was stated by the person who added the section that Rush Hour 2 took place right after Rush Hour, this is incorrect as director Brett Ratner specifically states in the Rush Hour 2 audio commentary that this may be Lee and Carter's second or third trip to China and it does not take place directly after the events of Rush Hour, specifically noting about how their hair is different among other things.--R.M.Hale (talk) 00:40, 7 July 2011 (UTC)
