Reboot and sequel announcements are a dime a dozen nowadays, but sometimes, just sometimes, a reboot will be announced and literally knock everyone off their feet. After some rumors about a new Rush Hour began circulating last year, Chris Tucker, arguably the funniest half of the franchise, finally confirmed that Rush Hour 4 is a go during an appearance on the ESPN podcast The Plug.

After one of the hosts asked Tucker if he and Jackie Chan would ever grace the world with more Rush Hour, Tucker replied with some magical words: “It’s happening.”
“This is gonna be the rush of all rushes,” the comedian said. “Jackie is ready and we want to do this so that people don’t ever forget it.” He wasn’t able to reveal any more details, but for diehard Rush Hour fans that should be more than enough.
