Jackie Chan Says 'Rush Hour 4' Is In Talks, Twitter Divided On It

Jackie Chan Says ‘Rush Hour 4’ Is In Talks, But Twitter Doesn’t Want It If There’s ‘No Racism’

Jackie Chan hyped the social media TLs after he revealed he’s in talks for a Rush Hour 4 on Thursday. But folks on Twitter seemed to be clear on one thing: if the follow-up isn’t a lil’ racist, they can keep it.

Chan was scheduled to meet with the director last night. But, he did not confirm whether it’ll be the same director as the previous three films, Brett Ratner. Chan also didn’t say if Chris Tucker would be at the meeting or if he’s involved in any way.

The last time we saw Jackie and Chris in a Rush Hour movie was when part three hit theaters in 2007. Before that, we got part two in 2001 and the original in 1998.

Jackie Chan gave the update while speaking at the Red Sea Film Festival on Thursday (Dec.8), per Variety. Chan told of his 60-year career, from making 80 cents as a stuntman to being a global sensation. He explained meeting Bruce Lee after the martial artist hit him on set, and Chan milked the injury for special treatment–and it worked.

He went from Hong Kong to Japan and made a name in Hollywood with Rush Hour. Chan almost gave up. He said his English wasn’t proficient then, Hollywood didn’t like his kind of action, and the ‘East Asian detective’ role was the constant offer. Then he got Rush Hour, took a shot at the role, and it was a hit. Ratner called Chan and told him the film made $70 million in the first weekend.

“For me, I don’t have a count of what 70 million is. I don’t know the box office. I just know its certainly a success. And then they made part 2 and part 3,”  Jackie said.

Twitter Talks About People Being ‘Too Sensitive’ For A ‘Rush Hour 4’

To be clear, the movie hasn’t been confirmed–it’s in talks. Still, people on Twitter are running with the potential of seeing Chan and Tucker make a comeback against some insane international scheme.

But, some are arguing the film won’t survive because today’s culture is ‘too sensitive.’ The raunchy–sometimes sexist, discriminatory, and racist jokes and scenes? Nah, they wouldn’t stand, but that’s what the people want. That seems to be Twitter’s vibe. Keep scrolling to peep.

Also, Brett Ratner’s Hollywood reputation is tainted. No new project since 2014, reportedly. And even worse, in 2017, six women, including actresses Olivia Munn and Natasha Henstridge, accused Ratner of sexual harassment, misconduct, and rape, per the Los Angeles Times. Ratner denied the accusations.

What do y’all think, Roomies? Are we too sensitive for it or more than ready?
