Chris Tucker has given us a bit more information on how Rush Hour 4 is coming along. Slowly, it seems - but it is still coming.
However, Tucker's most recent comments seem to suggest that things are taking a bit of time. I suppose that's a good thing - they're really trying to get it right, at least.
The 47-year-old comedian was speaking on the Winging It podcast, where he said: "We're working on a few things on the script right now, so we're trying to get into production. But we're working on it and trying to get it going.
"Jackie Chan wants to do it, I want to do it, [the] studio wants to do it, so we're trying to get it together.
"I guess, Jackie and me, but yeah, I was definitely down as long as it comes together right. And it looks like it's coming together right,"
Excellent news, even if it doesn't tell us a great deal that we didn't already know.
During his appearance on the podcast, Tucker also spoke about his admiration for his co-star. It turns out that Tucker was a big Jackie Chan fan, even before he worked with the diminutive martial artist and actor.
Tucker continued: "I was a big fan of Jackie Chan's before we started the first Rush Hour so I was excited.
"And I knew that my comedy style would work good with his martial arts and his comedy, so it was a perfect match for me, because I could be physical and be funny in that certain movie."
When it eventually emerges, the film will see Tucker and Chan return as Carter and Lee for a fourth time. The first film was released in 1998 and since then the franchise has gone on to span locations from Los Angeles to Hong Kong, and then on to Paris.
In total, the films have taken more than $849m at the box office. That's not bad going by any standards.
However, there was less success for the spin-off TV show. They had a go at turning the film to the small screen, but their efforts proved in vain after the show - which starred Justin Hines and Jon Foo - was cancelled by CBS after only one series and just 16 episodes.
Here's hoping that the fourth film fares slightly better.
