Ratner’s gold rush

Long-awaited sequel debuts in Hollywood

After six years of waiting for New Line’s “Rush Hour 3,” anticipation for a fourth installment quickly emerged on July 31 at the Chinese Theater preem.

Director Brett Ratner intro’d the actioner with an opening joke — “I’d like to welcome everyone to the first production meeting of ‘Rush Hour 4.'”

He compared New Line toppers Bob Shaye and Michael Lynne to his mother and father and production chief Toby Emmerich to his big brother.

At the post-preem bash at Les Deux, Lynne said he’d “love” to do another “Rush Hour” and noted that most of Chris Tucker‘s work has been at New Line. And producer Arthur Sarkissian expressed enthusiasm for another go — if it’s within the next few years.

Festivities also drew “Rush Hour 3” producers Jay Stern, Andrew Davis and Roger Birnbaum; New Line execs Richard Brener, Russell Schwartz and David Tuckerman plus Brian Grazer, Robert Evans, Paula Wagner and Paris Hilton.
