As it turns out, Jackie only very recently came to an agreement with insiders pushing to move the project forward. He explained, "For the last seven years, we've been turning down the script, turning down the script. Yesterday, we just agreed."
Chan added, "The script probably at the end of this month will have a second draft and next year, [we'll] probably start."
The catch? Because yes, there's always a catch. Jackie said, "If... Chris Tucker agrees."
The comedian and second half of the Rush Hour duo has yet to comment publicly on whether or not he's on board with a fourth film, but Jackie said his decision will most likely come down to scheduling constraints.
"It's not about money!" Chan assured. "It's about [having the] time to make. Otherwise, Rush Hour 4 we're all old men. I tell Chris Tucker, ‘Before we get old, please do Rush Hour 4.'"
