Today's surprising big mover is Rush Hour 3, which last I had heard was mired in negotiations with star Chris Tucker. Seemed Tucker felt he needed a bit more green in order to once again go toe to toe with Jackie Chan. Granted, I only passingly pay attention to news on this flick since I had - and continue to have - no interest in the first two. Actually, I have little interest in any of Jackie Chan's movies and definitely felt him teaming up with Tucker (whom I only found somewhat amusing in The Fifth Element) and hack director Brett Ratner might have been an all-time low or, more accurately, lows. Anyway, somebody must know something I don't since stocks for the third installment are up four points at mid-day.
