Mike Tyson looks set to go toe to toe with Jackie Chan in Rush Hour 4, according to new reports.
Just a few weeks after confirming that Rush Hour 4 is in the works, Jackie Chan (pictured alongside Chris Tucker in Rush Hour 3) has let slip that the new film will see him face off against Mike Tyson.
Since appearing in comedy films like Crocodile Dundee In Los Angeles and The Hangover, Tyson – a former boxer and convicted rapist – has steadily built up a portfolio of work in action films – so far he has gone fist to fist with Donnie Yen in Ip Man 3, Steven Seagal in China Salesman and Alain Moussi in Kickboxer: Retaliation.
Chan revealed the news whilst speaking at the Red Sea International Film Festival in Saudi Arabia. Tyson also mentioned the film on his podcast Hot Boxin’ With Mike.
As of yet, the identity of the writer and director of Rush Hour 4 are being kept under wraps. Due to Warner Bros severing ties with him over abuse allegations, it is highly unlikely to be Brett Ratner, who hasn’t directed a film since 2014’s Hercules.
We’ll keep you updated with news about Rush Hour 4 as we hear it.
