There was genuinely a period when I was around twelve-years-old or so when Rush Hour 2 was my favourite film.

I don’t know how to feel about that and I’m not sure whether it’s embarrassing or not. It probably is embarrassing. Most of the things I did as a child were embarrassing so I don’t know why this would slip through the net.

I just really liked it. Thought it was a lot of fun, with some good action and great jokes. It’s all you want from a film really. I’ve not watched it in a long time since and I’m not sure I should. I don’t want to break the illusion that it’s the best film ever.

But twelve years after the final addition of the original trilogy came out, I think we’re all ready for a new adventure, and it looks like that’s just over the horizon.

One half of the main duo, Chris Tucker, posted a picture of him and the other half, Jackie Chan, to Instagram with both of them holding up a four…

I mean you do the maths. That’s right. Eight.

Pretty exciting stuff though, right? It’s been a long time since Rush Hour 3 which, let’s be honest, wasn’t fantastic, but things could be better for the fourth.

Mind you, they could also be worse. I liked the Bonnie and Clyde scene from the third one. That was cool.

Tucker previously spoke about how hard it was to get the production for the fourth film going, speaking on the Winging It podcast, saying:

We’re working on a few things on the script right now, so we’re trying to get into production. But we’re working on it and trying to get it going.

“Jackie Chan wants to do it, I want to do it, [the] studio wants to do it, so we’re trying to get it together.

“I guess, Jackie and me, but yeah, I was definitely down as long as it comes together right. And it looks like it’s coming together right.”

This could be fun.

Does anyone remember that Rush Hour TV series that came out a couple of years back? That wasn’t terrible – it’s wasn’t great either – but it certainly wasn’t the worst thing I’ve ever watched. What happened to it?

I just looked it up and it was cancelled after one season.

Oh well.
