"Rush Hour 4" is in the Works

It's been five years since Rush Hour 3 last brought together Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker's Lee and Carter, but CraveOnline has learned that another adventure is in the works. They caught up with producer Arthur Sarkissian who says that the sequel is moving forward with the involvement of both stars and that a screenwriter will be brought aboard very soon.

"I'm trying to do it closer to how I did Rush Hour 1," he told the outlet. "More down to earth. More gritty. Introduce two new characters and make it real the way the first one was. I personally was not happy with the third one. I thought 1 and 2 were very good. I think 3 got out of hand a little bit. It's not a matter of just bringing them back to do another segment of that or a sequel to it by putting them in another city and having them bicker. I don't want that. I want something new."

Though there's no current commitment from director Brett Ratner, Sarkissian says that his involvement is not out of the question.

"He's more than welcome to do it," says the producer, "but he's got to do it in the right way."

Sarkissian's vision of the project involves putting Lee and Carter in a somewhat of a different genre than the previous films, a move he credits Fast Five for inspiring.

"They kept the characters," he says of that franchise, "They took them and they put them in a whole different world. They put them in the world of a heist movie and it worked... Maybe Chris is now married. Maybe Jackie is married to Octavia Spencer. I don't know. Married to Chris' cousin. They live in Shanghai. Chris goes out to visit them... I want something energetic."

Sarkissian is currently working as the executive producer on the upcoming television series "Vegas."
