JACKIE Chan has confirmed that a script for a Rush Hour 4 film has been agreed.
The actor, 63, told a radio station that filming for the sequel will start next year – providing his co-star Chris Tucker is available.
Speaking to Power 106’s The Cruz Show, he said: “For the last seven years, we’ve been turning down the script, turning down the script. Yesterday, we just agreed.
“The script probably at the end of this month will have a second draft and next year, [we’ll] probably start.
“If… Chris Tucker agrees.”
It’s been ten years since Jackie played Hong Kong detective Inspector Lee opposite Chris’s manic detective Carter in the last Rush Hour instalment.
Chris previously discussed the sequel two years ago, telling US website Collider: “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.”
The first film – which was released back in 1998 – established the actor as an English-language action star.
The sequel was released back in 2001 with the third film hitting the big screen in 2007.
All three movies have been directed by Brett Ratner.
The news comes despite the third film scoring £764,558 less at the Box Office than Rush Hour 2.
