Pa. Man Allegedly Murdered a Woman on Halloween After She Declined His Marriage Proposal

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.

When Serino declined, Tucker allegedly lost it, grabbing the young woman by the

Jackie Chan karate kicks his way back on the big screen 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.

'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 finally set to go ahead

Simon Brew Oct 9, 2017

Rush Hour 4 is an active project again, says Jackie Chan, with plans to film the next movie in 2018...

The Rush Hour trilogy of movies, starring Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker, have proven hugely lucrative for all concerned over the past near two-decades. Not withstanding the fact that the quality of them diminished, there have still been plans to make a Rush Hour 4 for some time, although given that it’s now been ten years since the third film, most had given up hope of seeing it.

Now though, Jackie Chan - whilst promoting The Lego Ninjago Movie - has confirmed that there’s finally a screenplay pretty much in place for the new movie. What’s more, it looks like it’s moving forward.

“Good news. Next year, Rush Hour 4, and I hope the script done”, Chan said. “And day after tomorrow we meet

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 might already be 63 years old but that won’t stop him from saving the world along with the 46-year old Chris Tucker.

Jackie Chan is almost certain Rush Hour 4 is happening -- as long as Chris Tucker gives the final go-ahead!

The 63-year-old actor went on Power 106's The Cruz Show, where he excited fans of the buddy action-comedy franchise by announcing that a fourth installment should be on its way by next year.

Jackie Chan Vs. Pierce Brosnan in The Foreigner Trailer
Stx Entertainment has released a new trailer and photos from The Foreigner, the latest film from the ageless big screen icon Jackie Chan. This action-packed thrill ride is very much in the same vein as the action classic Taken, with Jackie Chan playing a father with a very "special set of skills" that he uses to go after a group of terrorists. This timely action thriller also stars Pierce Brosnan and comes from the director of Casino Royale.

The Foreigner tells the story of humble London businessman Quan (Chan), whose long-buried past erupts in a revenge-fueled vendetta when the only person left for him to love -- his teenage daughter -- is taken from him in a senseless act of politically-motivated terrorism. In his relentless search for the identity of the terrorists, Quan is forced into a cat-and-mouse conflict with a British government official (Pierce Brosnan), whose own past may

The Hitman’S Bodyguard – Review

Ah, it’s almost that quiet (well quieter) time at the old multiplex, as Summer mayhem winds down and the end-of-the-year award bait anxiously awaits. You know… what with Labor Day here in just a couple of weeks. But what’s that rumbling in the distance? Why, it’s another car-smashin’ action flick, charging in with guns ablazin’! Is it another comics-based thriller, or the exciting newest installment of a spy franchise? No, but it’s pretty familiar, as it’s another adrenalin-fueled fable concerning two really different guys, who’ve got to team up to start a huge threat. And, in the tradition of Nick Nolte and Eddie Murphy in 48 Hours and Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker in the Rush Hour trilogy (oops, maybe another’s on the way), these fellas, besides their personalities, are, well, of different ethnicities. Perhaps this film will start a dialogue and help this divided nation.
