Jackie Chan told Power 106's "The Cruz Show" that "Rush Hour 4" was in the works:
"For the last seven years, we've been turning down the script, turning down the script. Yesterday, we just agreed. The script probably at the end of this month will have a second draft, and next year, probably [we will] start. I hope — if Chris Tucker agrees."

"If Chris Tucker agrees." Key point.
Did Tucker agree to do the movie, and agree to the first draft of the script, and he now just needs to agree to a shooting schedule ... or does he still have to agree to be involved at all? Chan also added:
"It's not about money. It's about time to make [it]. We're all, like, old men. I told Chris Tucker, 'Before we get old, please, let's do 'Rush Hour 4.'"
Fans are now pushing Tucker to agree to whatever it takes to make this happen:

Chris Tucker has yet to tweet or make a statement about "Rush Hour 4." It has been 10 years since "Rush Hour 3" came out in 2007. The first film, an odd couple/buddy comedy hit, came out in 1998, followed by "Rush Hour 2" in 2001.
