Simon Brew Oct 9, 2017

Rush Hour 4 is an active project again, says Jackie Chan, with plans to film the next movie in 2018...

The Rush Hour trilogy of movies, starring Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker, have proven hugely lucrative for all concerned over the past near two-decades. Not withstanding the fact that the quality of them diminished, there have still been plans to make a Rush Hour 4 for some time, although given that it’s now been ten years since the third film, most had given up hope of seeing it.

Now though, Jackie Chan - whilst promoting The Lego Ninjago Movie - has confirmed that there’s finally a screenplay pretty much in place for the new movie. What’s more, it looks like it’s moving forward.

“Good news. Next year, Rush Hour 4, and I hope the script done”, Chan said. “And day after tomorrow we meet

Jackie Chan and Sylvester Stallone Team for Action Thriller Ex-Baghdad
After Sylvester Stallone backed out of the fourth and final Expendables sequel back in March, the actor had a big hole in his schedule, which has now been fillled. The actor will be teaming up with international action icon Jackie Chan on a new action-thriller entitled Ex-Baghdad, which is said to be one of the biggest movies ever to come out of China. After Expendables 4 fell apart, Sylvester Stallone looked to this project to take on next, although it hasn't been confirmed when filming will begin.

Deadline reports that Scott Waugh (Need for Speed) has been set to direct, from a script by Arash Amel (Grace of Monaco).

Rush Hour 4 Is Still Happening
It's been almost 10 years since Detective James Carter (Chris Tucker) and Chief Inspector Lee (Jackie Chan) last joined forces in 2007's Rush Hour 3. Throughout the years, there has been talk of another Rush Hour sequel, but there haven't been any substantial updates in quite some time. During an appearance at the Sun Valley Film Festival, filmmaker Brett Ratner revealed that he thinks this action sequel will happen. Here's what he had to say in a brief statement at the festival, while jokingly revealing a possible title.

"I think it will happen; we're talking to writers. We could call it Grumpy Old Rush Hour."

While the filmmaker wouldn't elaborate more on this sequel to Entertainment Weekly, he may be onto something in regards to the title. While Chris Tucker was still a rising star when the first Rush Hour hit theaters in 1998, the actor is now 44 years of age, while

Film Review: ‘Railroad Tigers’

Film Review: ‘Railroad Tigers’
When was the last time you saw a good Jackie Chan movie? Sure, the “Kung Fu Panda” movies are great, but they don’t really count, since that’s just his voice. What has it been — 10 years? 15? — since the chance to see Chan in action really justified the price of admission?

After a long stretch in which he made one, maybe two, movies a year, Chan is scheduled to release five more movies in 2017, after the Chinese action-comedy “Railroad Tigers” (granted, two are voice roles in animated movies). More importantly, though “Railroad Tigers” itself is a tired, often incomprehensible mess about a group of Chinese resistance fighters who use a train loaded with Japanese ammunition as a weapon against their unwelcome invaders, for genuine Jackie Chan fans, it’s evidence that he wasn’t ready to retire from action movies after all, despite comments made to that effect back in

Joseph Baxter Dec 7, 2016

Joe Carnahan’s ensemble action movie Five Against a Bullet nabs Jackie Chan as its first star.

It appears that Joe Carnahan’s next film is about rev its engines. While the helmer of Narc, Smokin’ Aces, The A-Team and The Grey hasn't been helming a new film this past year or two (he's instead been working on the writing and development of many others), he did sign up to direct and re-write an action ensemble piece called Five Against A Bullet back in 2014. Now, the reinvigorated project has procured one of its lead actors in an international superstar.

According to Variety, cinematic martial arts icon Jackie Chan has jumped aboard Five Against A Bullet as its star. The film – based on Carnahan’s re-write of a script by Predators scribe Alex Litvak – is set in a small Mexican town, depicting five bodyguards who are tasked with
