‘Rush Hour’ Female Reboot in the Works
In recent years, several film franchises have changed things up with reboots featuring female leads.
‘Ghostbusters (2016)’, ‘Ocean’s 8 (2018)’ and ‘What Men Want (2019)’ are a few of the films that have swapped out the lead-role genders and ‘Rush Hour’ can now be added to that list.
The 1998 hit action/comedy film starred Jackie Chan & Chris Tucker as two mismatched police officers - it went on two spawn two sequels. The third installment releasing in 2007.
This isn’t the first attempt at bringing back the ‘Rush Hour’ name as it was briefly adapted into a television series on CBS before being canceled after just one season back in 2016.
Interestingly enough, in a recent interview, ‘Rush Hour’ star Chris Tucker said he does expect a fourth one to be made.
Details are still scarce in this recent reboot announcement but what is known about the STX Entertainment production is that Bingbing Li (‘The Meg’, ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’) is being looked at for one of the lead roles.
Who would you like to see opposite of Li?
