Chris Tucker hints that Rush Hour 4 is in the works… after wishing his friend Jackie Chan happy 65th birthday

It’s been over 20 years since they first paired up in the international buddy cop comedy Rush Hour.

Now Chris Tucker is hinting that he and Jackie Chan are on board for a fourth installment in the series.

The 47-year-old comedian posted an Instagram photo referring to the possible film shortly after wishing the action superstar a happy 65th birthday on Sunday.

Chris shared a picture to Instagram of Jackie Chan and himself embracing while each putting up four fingers.

The picture was accompanied by a confusingly worded caption: ‘Oh I know I don’t think I’m seeing what I’m seeing what I’m thinkin.’

Though the Friday star didn’t specify when the photo was taken, it looked to be of a recent vintage.

‘Today is Jackie’s birthday,’ wrote. ‘I want to wish my boy Jackie Chan a Happy Birthday!!’

Jackie was born in 1954 in Hong Kong, at the time a United Kingdom Overseas Territory.

His last widely-released film in the US was The Foreigner, a political revenge thriller that saw him showing off the stunt work that first made him a star.

Jackie and Chris played Chief Inspector Lee and Detective James Carter, respectively, in the Rush Hour series.

Rush Hour 2 was released in 2001 and Rush Hour 3 followed in 2007.

In January, while speaking on the Winging It podcast with Vince Carter and Kent Bazemore, he clarified a bit about the early status of the new sequel.

‘It’s not in pre-production,’ he explained. ‘We’re working on a few things [for] the script. Jackie wants to do it. I want to do it. The studio wants to do it.’

‘We’re trying to get it together. It looks like it’s getting together right,’ he added.

Jackie has been promising a sequel go back to 2017, when he spoke with the radio station Power 106 Los Angeles.

‘[It’s coming] next year,’ he said at the time. ‘For the last seven years, we’ve been turning down the script, turning down the script. Yesterday, we just agreed.’

He added that his co-star would need to agree, which he definitely does now.

‘It’s about [having] time to make it,’ clarified the Drunken Master star. ‘Otherwise, Rush Hour 4, we’re all old men. I tell Chris Tucker, ‘Before we get old, please do Rush Hour 4.’

Looks like they’re closer than ever.
