It's been 12 years since we last saw Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker in action in the Rush Hour franchise.
There have been talks of a fourth instalment but it seems like production keeps stalling. But Chan and Tucker have just made a huge suggestion that the movie is on the way.
Tucker posted a picture of the pair holding up the number four, so it doesn't take a genius to put two and two together.
People have been quick to get excited about the film, with one person saying: "I have been waiting for long time. Rush Hour is amazing."
Another added: "Rush Hour 4 yeah finally, this is awesome."
Tucker, who plays Detective James Carter alongside Chan's character Chief Inspector Yan Lee, recently revealed that the process of making the fourth movie is taking longer than expected.
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."
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."
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.
Now we just need to wait for an official confirmation, a script, a cast, a release date and then the most exciting part of it all: a trailer. Keep your eyes peeled.
