Chris Tucker Live trailer

Chris Tucker has only appeared in three movies in the past 15 years, laying low after the massive success of the first two Rush Hour movies. Now, he can be seen in Ang Lee’s Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, which is his first credit since 2012’s Silver Linings Playbook (which was his first credit since 2007’s Rush Hour 3). While doing press for his new movie, he spoke to Collider about the possibility of re-teaming with Jackie Chan for a Rush Hour 4:

Yeah, we’re talking about it now doing another one, and we’re trying to get it going. I think we might be able to get one going. I love working with Jackie and I think we could do a really fun one.

It’s been nearly a decade since the previous Rush Hour movie and even that was only a modest hit. Is there even an audience for Rush Hour 4? And will Tucker, who famously held out for a massive payday on both sequels, even want to return?

Goonies

While we’re talking about sequels that probably won’t ever happen, Martha Plimpton recently conducted a Reddit AMA said that everyone shouldn’t get their hopes for a sequel to The Goonies:

I wish I had an answer for you, but I can tell you that I really wouldn’t expect it. It’s been teased for decades and I don’t think it’s going to happen. At least, as far as I know. I think [director] Dick Donner, who is a brilliantly funny man, likes to torture us all with the prospect. I believe it’s his revenge for having been tortured by all of us for 6 months in 1984.

Everyone has been talking about The Goonies 2 for years, but it’s hard to imagine it getting made at this point. Does anything really want to see those characters, now grown up, go on another adventure? And would anyone care about a passing-of-the-torch sequel starring their kids? Maybe it’s time for the Goonies to say die.

Matt Reeves has been quietly working on War For the Planet of the Apes, his sequel to Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. And while the first trailer (which our own Angie Han saw about from NYCC) hasn’t arrived online yet, Reeves is sharing photos from post-production. Movie production fact: nobody, and I mean, nobody, can make motion capture body suits look good.

And finally, let’s end this edition of Sequel Bits on a pipe dream: Hellboy III. While the first two movies in Guillermo del Toro’s colorful and imaginative comic book adaptations have a strong following, they both failed to perform at the box office. A third film isn’t going to happen. But series star Ron Perlman hasn’t given up the fight and continues to bring it up in as many interviews as possible. So when he recently announced/joked that he was going to run for President, del Toro decided to twist the knife just a little bit.
