Rush Hour 4 Will it Happen?

The Rush Hour movie series is the perfect remedy to brighten up any gloomy day. They’re full of stomach hurting comedy and mind-blowing plot twists. The series follows the action-packed adventures of two agents; Detective James Carter and Inspector Lee. The series currently has three movies, with the last one coming out almost 15 years ago. However, the Rush Hour fandom is very much alive and still hoping for a fourth extension. But after so many years, is there any chance of a fourth movie? Or has the series concluded with three parts? Keep on reading to find out the latest information about Rush Hour 4.

Rush Hour 4 Release Date

Rush Hour debuted in 1998, with a second part released in 2001. Part 3 took several years to renew and produce and finally came out in 2007. The films have been an absolute hit and generated several million dollars in profit! Thus, it is no surprise that the producers have worked on Rush Hour 4 for several years. However, the movie’s star Jackie Chan rejected several scripts, which led to a significant delay in production.

Fortunately for fans, Jackie Chan is finally happy with the script and has already signed off on the screenplay. The series’ other leading actor Chris Tucker has also agreed to join the crew! Thus, Rush Hour 4 has begun, and we may get to watch the movie as early as 2022! An exact release date has not been announced as of yet. However, we are sure the announcement is just around the corner since the script has been ready since 2018. Mr Tucker has explained the reason for the considerable delay in a podcast, saying,

“We’re working on a few things on the script right now, so we’re trying to get into production, but we’re working on it and trying to get it going. Jackie Chan wants to do it. I want to do it, the studio wants to do it, so we’re trying to get it together.” 

Since all the previous movies came out in the late summers, Rush Hour 4 will probably also come out in the same period in 2022. 

Rush Hour 4 Cast

The cast for Part 4 remains undisclosed as of yet. However, Jackie Chan will return as Inspector Lee. Chris Tucker will also return to resume his role as Detective James Carter. 

Apart from them, the entire cast crew will be new! 


The Rush Hour movie series always deals with James and Lee teaming up to find mafia leaders, drug lords and other major criminals. The storyline for Rush Hour 4 will probably deal with the same central idea. However, its direction will be slightly different from its predecessor as someone new is writing the script this time! Additionally, part 4 will also feature a new director following Brett Ratner’s harassment allegations. Thus, the plot will be very different from the usual Rush Hour films. 

Rush Hour 4 Trailer

Since production is still underway, we don’t have a trailer. However, some exclusive behind the scenes footage may be coming our way soon, so be on the lookout!
