Movie News: 'Batgirl' Now Needs a New Writer and Director; Chris Tucker Teases 'Rush Hour 4'

Batgirl: Just about a year ago, we heard that Joss Whedon (Avengers: Age of Ultron, above) would be writing and directing Batgirl for Warner Bros. and DC. Now Whedon says: "Batgirl is such an exciting project, and Warners/DC such collaborative and supportive partners, that it took me months to realize I really didn't have a story." Of course, Whedon was also busy last year helping to complete Justice League after the unexpected departure of director Zack Snyder. We'll have to wait and see where the Batgirl project goes from here. [The Hollywood Reporter]   Rush Hour 4: Chris Tucker starred together with Jackie Chan in three popular installments of the Rush Hour action-comedy franchise, all directed by Brett Ratner, the last in 2007 (above).

  • JoBlo
Not since last year, when Jackie Chan appeared on The Cruz Show with claims that a Rush Hour 4 is in the works, have we heard much else about the long-gestating sequel to the popular buddy comedy film series.

Cardi B Was Caught Jamming Out to Her Song 'Bartier Cardi' at NBA All-Star Game
Cardi B isn’t afraid to rock out to a great song — especially if it’s her own!

The 25-year-old rapper hit the NBA All-Star Game in Los Angeles on Sunday night, where TNT cameras caught her munching on popcorn as her hit “Bartier Cardi” played in the Staples Center. Cardi B wasn’t shy about doing a little dance in her courtside seat to the tune, bobbing her head and moving her hand as a fellow spectator sitting beside her realized the excellence of what was happening.

After stealing the show at the Grammy Awards, it’s no surprise that all eyes were on Blue Ivy Carter while she sat courtside with mom Beyoncé at the NBA All-Star Game.

Despite the action on the court, Sunday — Team LeBron James bested Team Stephen Curry with a score of 148-145 — the star-studded front row was quite the distraction. The mother-daughter duo was joined by Beyoncé’s own mom, Tina Knowles Lawson, who sat next to her husband, Richard Lawson.

Five reasons to see The Foreigner

Five reasons to see The ForeignerFive reasons to see The ForeignerScott Goodyer1/16/2018 9:30:00 Am

Jackie Chan karate kicks his way back onscreen in The Foreigner! The action movie has Chan playing a humble businessman with a buried past who seeks justice when his daughter is killed in an act of terrorism. Pierce Brosnan also stars, teaming up again with GoldenEye director Martin Campbell.

Here are 5 reasons why you need to check this movie out:

1. The Stunts

Jackie Chan has endured many years of long, hard work and a ton of injuries to establish international success via his early beginnings in Hong Kong's martial arts movie industry. Making his way to North American audiences in 1995 with Rumble in the Bronx, this was the first time we saw an action star do his own stunts as he ran up walls and bounced off cars. It was very impressive and Jackie hasn't slowed down.

Pa. Man Allegedly Murdered a Woman on Halloween After She Declined His Marriage Proposal
A 34-year-old man has been arrested in Illinois on murder charges out of Pennsylvania, where he is accused of snapping the neck of a woman who did not accept his marriage proposal, People confirms.

Christopher Tucker, of Albany Township in Pennsylvania, has been charged with murder and criminal homicide for allegedly killing Tara Serino, 19, on Halloween night.

Authorities describe the two as friends, according to court documents obtained by People — but police believe that didn’t stop Tucker from popping the question last month inside his home.

'The Foreigner' Review: Jackie Chan Goes the 'Taken' Route in Revenge Thriller

'The Foreigner' Review: Jackie Chan Goes the 'Taken' Route in Revenge Thriller
Legend is a much abused word in the movie business – but Jackie Chan really is a legend. The undisputed king of martial-arts movies kicked up a notch with slapstick and jaw-dropping stunts, the star is acrobatic poetry in motion. American audiences know him best from his three Rush Hour action comedies with Chris Tucker (No. 4 is on the drawing board), but true aficionados rightly point to Chan's death-defying Hong Kong cinema epics – see Drunken Master, Police Story and Armor of God – as pinnacles of the form.

Rush Hour 4: Chris Tucker confirms it's going ahead

Simon Brew Feb 23, 2018

Rush Hour 4 is an active project, it seems...

Since we last heard anything about Rush Hour 4, namely the story you can find below, the director of the three films to date, Brett Ratner, has faced accusations of sexual misconduct. As such, it looks as if he's backed away from a bunch of movie projects (he was in line to direct the Hugh Heffner biopic).

Rush Hour 4, however, is still very much pressing ahead. Jackie Chan had said as much last autumn, and now Chris Tucker, his co-star, has confirmed this too. "It’s happening. This is gonna be the rush of all rushes. Jackie is ready and we want to do this so that people don’t ever forget it", he told ESPN'S The Plug podcast.

We don't have firm production dates, or anything of that ilk. But there is a clear intent

Jackie Chan teases that Rush Hour 4 is moving forward

It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about the long-rumoured fourth instalment in the Rush Hour series – in fact, we had an entire short-lived TV series in the meantime – but now thanks to Jackie Chan we now have an update.

“For the last seven years, we’ve been turning down the script, turning down the script,” said Chan on Power 106’s The Cruz Show (via Deadline). “Yesterday, we just agreed. The script probably at the end of this month will have a second draft, and next year, probably [we will] start. I hope — if Chris Tucker agrees.”

So, it seems that Chan is on board, and things would sound very promising indeed, save for his last comment. Presumably Tucker will have seen the first draft though, and has been impressed enough to give the go ahead for a second, so perhaps we’ll be seeing Detectives Lee and Carter

Jackie Chan Says He Has Agreed To Do Rush Hour 4

It's been ten years since we last saw Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker kicking ass together as Lee and Carter in Rush Hour 3 and now it looks like Rush Hour 4 is prepping up for development. According to Jackie Chan, he has agreed to do it.

During a recent radio interview on L.A.'s Power 106 (via Deadline), Chan said:

“For the last seven years, we’ve been turning down the script, turning down the script. Yesterday, we just agreed.”

All three films were directed by Brett Ratner, but there's no word on if he'll be back for the fourth one. I assume that if it happens, he will direct it. I'm not the biggest fan of Ratner's work, but the Rush Hour franchise is probably his best work. He is set to direct the Hugh Hefner biopic with Jared Leto next. Chan went on to say that Chris Tucker
