Legendary action star Jackie Chan recently revealed that “Rush Hour 4” is in the works.
Chan, 68, shared the news during an in-person event at the Red Sea International Film Festival in Saudi Arabia on Thursday.
“We’re talking about part four right now! But the script isn’t right. … I will see the director tonight, and we will be talking about it,” the actor said.
Despite confirming that the film already has a director, Chan did not reveal their identity.
Fans have been waiting for the fourth Rush Hour film for over a decade. The third installment of the action-comedy franchise was released in 2007, while the first two installments were released in 1998 and 2001, respectively.
Rumors about “Rush Hour 4” started circulating online in 2018 after Chan’s co-star Chris Tucker, 51, seemingly confirmed the project.
A year later, he posted a picture together taken with Chan on Instagram to potentially hint at the sequel.
