Rush Hour 4 May Happen

Rush Hour 4 may be happening, but has to be energetic, down to earth, and gritty according to producer Arther Sarkissian.

We ran into movie producer Arthur Sarkissian at the Television Critics Association press tour. He produced his first TV series, “Vegas,” on CBS. We spoke about the upcoming fall drama, then moved to his potential movie projects. When we fished for his interest in doing another Rush Hour, Sarkissian revealed there’s serious development on a fourth film in the buddy cop franchise.

“I am working on Rush Hour 4 right now with Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan,” Sarkissian said. “I’m trying to do it closer to how I did Rush Hour 1, 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.”

Two new characters, like younger cops to whom Chris and Jackie could hand the franchise off? Not necessarily, Sarkissian said.

“Maybe younger, maybe Chris is now married, maybe Jackie is married to Octavia Spencer, I don’t know. Married to Chris’s cousin, they live in Shanghai, Chris goes out to visit them. I don’t know, I want something energetic.”

Now, I thought I was forgetting a “before they were stars” cameo by Spencer in a previous Rush Hour. Turns out Sarkissian is just pulling that out of his head, and he totally thinks he could get her after her Oscar win. “Absolutely. Why not? If it’s good, script is good you’ll get anybody.”

Sarkissian confirmed Tucker and Chan are interested in returning. He has not settled on a screenwriter yet. “Right now we haven’t decided yet but I’m very close to making a decision. I have about four or five names that we’re roaming on right now.”

Brett Ratner directed the three Rush Hour films. Hinting at his dissatisfaction with Rush Hour 3, Sarkissian was cautious about suggesting Ratner’s involvement. “If he wants to do it he’s more than welcome to do it but he’s got to do it in the right way.”

Chan recently announced that Chinese Zodiac would be his last intense Hong Kong action film, though he will continue to make movies like The Karate Kid with an action component. Sarkissian is sensitive to Chan’s needs, and he doesn’t want to overdo the action anyway.

“He’s getting a little older. I think he can fit it. What was great about Rush Hour 1 and 2 mostly was the relationship of these two and it came out of nowhere. It was just very real. We didn’t build it, we didn’t write it. It just happened. I think the action will be there but it has to be molded to fit him today and not forced into stuff that he won’t do.”

Since Rush Hour is based on the relationship between agents Lee (Chan) and Carter (Tucker), they could presumably have infinite adventures. There’s no closed-ended canon. However, Sarkissian looked to an interesting franchise for inspiration on keeping Rush Hour fresh.

“One of the things that surprised me and actually excited me was how they did Fast Five. They kept the characters, 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. I think that was brilliant what they did because if you’re not careful, what happens is you just keep repeating yourself. There’s not much you can do. You’ve got to be very careful but that’s where creativity and energy and good thought and a little bit of hard work comes to try and give them something that’s in that world but a little different.”

Of course, you don’t want it to be too different, because then it’s not Rush Hour anymore. “Absolutely not, because you will have the characters, it will be the two of them. They’ve got to be in a world where it’s not just fighting with one another.”


Jackie Chan in Olympics TV Special

Jackie made a special appearance on an Olympic Games TV special with the head coach of the Chinese Badminton team, Li Yongbo. During the program Li Yongbo's admiration for Jackie's badminton skills was revealed "He can play against two people for two hours, and also with the martial arts tumbling." Li Yongbo's interpretation is not a bit exaggerated, as Jackie, explained next:" but only if the opponent can not kill the ball!" Jackie carried on to say that he really likes badminton because it was very good exercise but that he would not want to play it professionally. If he had to choose an Olympic sport that he would have liked to have done, it would have been gymnastics. Jackie also spoke about his wish for Martial Arts to be included as an Olympic event.

While he was there Jackie pulled a pile of paper napkins out of his pocket. When the reporters asked him about it he said that when he goes to a restaurant he does not waste the paper towels and takes them with him to use later.

Jackie revealed that he was asked to run with the torch for London 2012 but had to turn it down due to being busy with "Chinese 12 Zodiac".

Beijing Bless You MV



Jackie Records TV Show

This show was recorded in Beijing during the last week and aired in 2 parts. The first part aired on 21 July 2012 and the second part will air on 28 July 2012. Jackie appeared with the New Seven Little Fortunes. They told stories about how Jackie has mentored them. Jackie made barrista style filter coffee for the host of the show, and demonstrated how to use a chopping blade in a gangster movie. He brought La and Zy as well as a collection of items from his store, including his specially marked acupressure socks. Of course these needed demonstrating.


"Beijing Bless You" Released

On 21 July 2012 Jackie, Wang Pingjiu, Chang Shilei, Zhang Zilin, Hu Xia, Wu Xia, and Liu Yan attended the official launch of the song "Beijing Bless You" 《北京祝福你》. The lyrics were written by Wang Pingjiu and composed by Chang Shilei.

There was a very touching moment when Jackie brought out Liu Yan - the dancer who was injured when the stage collapsed during rehearsals for the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Jackie said that the song "really embodies love, peace, harmony" and that he thought that in the 21 days it took record it, that they really captured a good thing. When asked about the most moving moment during recording Jackie said that when he opened the door to the studio in Hong Kong to find Andy Lau, Zhang Ziyi and a group of other stars waiting for him because he knows how difficult it is to rearrange schedules and push back other obligations in order to record.

The organising team were given an award in recognition of their hard work in producing the song.

A total of 177 stars filmed at 100 landmark locations in 21 days to record the song and MV.



The MV for the song has not yet been released. There will be several different versions of the video released in order to showcase all the different artists that participated. This is the official release of the song:
