Jackie Chan disclosed that he’s in negotiations for “Rush Hour 4, according to IGN.
The legendary martial artist made the announcement at the Red Sea International Film Festival in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, where he spoke about his upcoming projects and his 60-year career in front of a crowd of adoring fans who regularly interrupted discussions to shout at questions, congratulate him on his Academy Award and have him sing.
He was pleased to reply with a quick burst of “I Can’t Help Falling in Love With You”, explaining that he learned to sing. So that he would be able to do something for his fans that would not involve fighting moves.
Chan was talking about his humble beginnings, winning 80 a day as a stuntman. As such, he first met Bruce Lee when the superstar struck him in an organized fight. Chan says Lee was shocked, and Chan gambled his injury to gain sympathy.
“As a stunt guy you can get hit every day,” Chan said. “It doesn’t matter. I pretend I’m hurt then he comes to help me. ‘I’m sorry,’ he says. The whole day and the whole night, every time I turn around, I see Lee looking if I’m okay. I wanted him to hit me again.”
Later, he touched on. Hollywood with “Rush Hour”, which, by pairing it with Chris Tucker, finally allowed her to use her own frenetic style. He originally thought the movie might fail, but, “I got a phone call. Brett Ratner and Chris Tucker call me from New York. They’re crazy. We were $70 million in the first weekend. For me, I don’t know how to count.” But he adds to cheers: “We’re talking about ‘Rush Hour 4’ right now.”
