The duo first united for Rush Hour in 1998, which was a huge hit at the box office and is to this day one of the things Chan is most well known for in the U.S. It also easily remains Tucker's most bankable role ever. After years of waiting, it looks like everything is coming together as Tucker has just confirmed that Rush Hour 4 is indeed happening and sounds quite confident it's not only going to happen, but that it's going to be great.

Chris Tucker recently appeared on ESPN's The Plug Show and the subject of Rush Hour 4 inevitably came up. When it did, the comedian and actor revealed the good news and confidently stated that the movie is moving forward. He continued, saying that

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

While Jackie Chan wouldn't mention the director by name, it's quite possible that he's referring to Rush Hour franchise director Brett Ratner, who directed all three movies thus far, and even revealed in

Hiroyuki Sanada joins Westworld season 2 and Avengers: Infinity War casts

Japanese actor and martial artist Hiroyuki Sanada will be joining the cast of HBO’s Westworld in a major recurring role for season 2, TV Guide reports. In addition to the fact that Sanada will be playing a new character named Musashi for multiple episodes, the outlet also did a little bit of digging and discovered that the character could give the audience a closer look at Samurai World (park name unconfirmed), a sister park to Westworld hinted at in the season 1 finale.

For this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, Funko unveiled a wave of exclusive HBO-related Pop! vinyl figures, including one for a character of the name Musashi; he hadn’t been introduced on the show before and sports a samurai-appropriate sword, helmet and armor. Westworld clearly isn’t Delos Incorporated’s only venture, and the toy would suggest that at least one of those other ventures will get some

‘Stranger Things’ Editor Talks About the ‘Very Collaborative’ Duffer Brothers Set

‘Stranger Things’ Editor Talks About the ‘Very Collaborative’ Duffer Brothers Set
First-time Emmy nominee for his work on “Stranger Things,” editor Dean Zimmerman grew up immersed not just in Hollywood but also in the specific career path of editing, thanks to his father, the Oscar-nominated Don Zimmerman. Being in that environment from such a young age, Zimmerman was able to learn about a variety of genres and watch the industry change with emerging technology, which helped lead him to such big-budget features as “Rush Hour 3” and the “Night at the Museum” franchise before turning his attention to TV. “I owe everything to my father,” Zimmerman says. “He has been very blessed to have worked really hard and become as big as he is, and my influence is 100% him. He taught me everything I know, and I credit everything to him.”

Coming from the world of feature films, what made you want to make the jump to the smaller screen with a project like “Stranger Things?”

Aquaman Video Teases Amber Heard's Fight Training as Mera
With production starting on Aquaman this summer, we recently saw a video with star Jason Momoa training for his role as Arthur Curry, along with a photo of Amber Heard practicing her swordplay skills for her role of Mera. Over the weekend, Amber Heard posted a new video showcasing another part of her training, where she's seen practicing her hand-to-hand combat skills, in a most impressive fashion. While there is still not much we know about Mera in Aquaman yet, it seems clear that she is not one to be messed with.

Amber Heard herself posted this brief nine-second video to Instagram over the weekend, showing her training with the 87Eleven team, a company that was founded by John Wick directors Chad Stahelski and David Leitch. While the founders weren't present in this video, she is seen training with Jon Valera. Earlier this week, Amber Heard posted a training photo

Rush Hour 4 Is Still Happening

Rush Hour 4 Is Still Happening
It's been almost 10 years since Detective James Carter (Chris Tucker) and Chief Inspector Lee (Jackie Chan) last joined forces in 2007's Rush Hour 3. Throughout the years, there has been talk of another Rush Hour sequel, but there haven't been any substantial updates in quite some time. During an appearance at the Sun Valley Film Festival, filmmaker Brett Ratner revealed that he thinks this action sequel will happen. Here's what he had to say in a brief statement at the festival, while jokingly revealing a possible title.

"I think it will happen; we're talking to writers. We could call it Grumpy Old Rush Hour."

While the filmmaker wouldn't elaborate more on this sequel to Entertainment Weekly, he may be onto something in regards to the title. While Chris Tucker was still a rising star when the first Rush Hour hit theaters in 1998, the actor is now 44 years of age, while

Crowd-Pleasing Hits Pepper Walk of Fame Honoree Brett Ratner’s Resume

Crowd-Pleasing Hits Pepper Walk of Fame Honoree Brett Ratner’s Resume
Brett Ratner’s rise through the directorial ranks as a helmer of consistent studio hits was swift and immediate. A veteran of the music-video world, his feature debut, “Money Talks,” became a low-budget success in late summer 1997, and would cement his strong relationship with actor-comedian Chris Tucker.

Chris helped me get my job on ‘Money Talks,’ ” Ratner says. “When the original director left the project, Chris apparently said to the producers that he knew this ‘cool white boy named Brett Ratner’ and that’s how it happened. I knew I could work with Chris and that it would be a lot of fun. ‘Money Talks’ made sense because I had come out of music videos, and it fit with what I had learned. It happened very fast. I was 26 when I got ‘Money Talks,’ and I’d done over 100 music videos, but back then, you had to do commercials and

Chris Tucker On Possibility Of Rush Hour 4: “We’re Trying To Get It Going”

It’s going on 20 years since New Line Cinema first paired the fastest hands in the east with the biggest mouth in the west, and though a spinoff TV series failed to find its feet, series stalwart Chris Tucker has revealed that Rush Hour 4 is not off the table.

Chatting to Collider to promote Ang Lee’s imminent drama Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, Tucker confirmed that all involved are “trying to get [Rush Hour 4] going,” possibly welcoming the return of Chief Inspector Lee (Jackie Chan) and Detective James Carter (Tucker) for another round of raucous buddy-cop action.

“Yeah, we’re talking about it now doing another one, and we’re trying to get it going. I think we might be able to get one going. I love working with Jackie and I think we could do a really fun one.”

Almost ten years on from the release of Rush Hour 3,

Jon Favreau's Lion King To Be Written By Catch Me If You Can's Jeff Nathanson

As you know, Iron Man director Jon Favreau is directing a feature film reimagining of the Walt Disney animated classic The Lion King. Writer Justin Marks took screenplay duties for Favreau's version of The Jungle Book, but the director will be working with a different scribe for this project. Deadline reports that the job has gone to Jeff Nathanson, the veteran screenwriter whose best credit is probably Steven Spielberg's Catch Me If You Can.

Nathanson's filmography is spotty, though. He's one of the credited writers of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, and he penned The Terminal, Speed 2: Cruise Control, and Brett Ratner's Rush Hour 2, Rush Hour 3, and Tower Heist. Yikes. He's also written the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, so I assume that means some Disney exec likes what he's done with that script enough to

Akshay Kumar champions the cause of stuntsmen with a heartfelt piece

Scott Cosgrove, an international stuntman from USA, died on 23rd February near a hiking trail in the Santa Monica hills. While the news started trickling in during last few days, Bollywood’s own Akshay Kumar was supremely impacted by this mishap. Reason being that the actor, impressed by Scott’s work in films like The Expendables 2, The Hunger Games, Rush Hour 3 and 300 amongst others, was supposed to collaborate with Scott in one of his upcoming films.

In the times when majority of actors don’t even acknowledge the biggest of the directors once they start going through a lean phase, Akshay has actually gone ahead and paid homage to a stuntman and that too from foreign shores!

A stuntman at heart, who started with a couple of dozen action films before moving on to various genres, and is now acting in an array of films that range from drama to hardcore action,

14 terrible films that made obscene amounts of money – and only two have Adam Sandler in

14 terrible films that made obscene amounts of money – and only two have Adam Sandler in
Bad films are part of the movie-making process. For every Citizen Kane, there are dozens of Law Abiding Citizens; for every The Exorcist, hundreds of Exorcist II: The Heretics.

They're all meant to do badly, because they are bad. But sometimes, there's an aberration. Sometimes... they're successful. Very successful. Very, very successful.

Here, then, are 14 of our favourite least favourite films to ever make studio heads' eyes turn into little dollar signs (in order of awfulness).

14. Anger Management (2003)

Rotten Tomatoes ranking: 43%

Production budget: $75 million

Worldwide box office: $195 million

Anger Management spluttered back into like in 2012 as a TV vehicle for snake blood-drinking "winner" Charlie Sheen. It lasted two seasons: the first had 10 episodes, the second 90, all so the show could go into syndication. As soon as it hit its 100th episode, it was immediately canned.

13. Meet The Fockers (2004)

Rotten Tomatoes ranking: 38%

Production budget: $80 million

Worldwide box office: $516 million
