Jackie Chan Approached for ‘Expendables 4,’ ‘Rush Hour 4’

Jackie Chan is in high demand.

According to the legendary action star, he’s been approached for three potential sequels: “Expendables 4”, “Rush Hour 4” and “Drunken Master 3.”

“Sly (Stallone) wants me for ‘Expendables 4,'” he told Den of Geek earlier this week. “I said, ‘okay.’ Because they already asked me to be in two and three, but I refused. Well, I didn’t refuse, but I said, ‘Sly, can’t we just do you and me? Not just a bunch of people and me only coming out for five minutes.'”

It appears that Chan is holding out for a bigger role or an anti-“Expendables” pic with just two action stars. That’s probably best as “Expendables 3” flopped in the box office on Friday when it made its franchise-worst debut. The pic is also set to be the series’ lowest-grossing opening.

“So if I’m in ‘Expendables 4,’ I want it to be me and him,” he said. “Then it might be interesting. Otherwise you just come out for five minutes.”

Chan also said that he’s waiting for the right scripts before agreeing to return to the “Rush Hour” and “Drunken Master” franchises.

While talking about the possibility of “Drunken Master 3,” which he said he basically already shot with 2010’s rebooted “The Karate Kid,” he said he won’t settle for a “rubbish script” for “Rush Hour 4.”

“I believe after ‘Drunken Master 2’ stop; better than we make no more,” he told audiences this week during a Q&A in London promoting his film “Chinese Zodiac.” “Unless we have a better script. Just like lately they want to make ‘Rush Hour 4.’ I said ‘No, show me the script first. I don’t need another ‘Rush Hour 4.’ You need ‘Rush Hour 4.’ Show me the script.’ I don’t want to do a rubbish script just because they want to make the movie.”

Costar Chris Tucker said two years ago that he and Chan were “looking into” doing a fourth installment.

“‘Rush Hour 4,’ we’re looking into it, me and Jackie [Chan],” Tucker said. “We’re trying to get it going so we’re developing something.”
