Serena to star in 'Rush Hour 3'

Has anybody viewed the interview with Brett Ratner on ET-TV?

He was being interview about his latest movie, starring Pierce Brosnan. When he was asked would there be another ‘Rush Hour’ movie in the making, and would Serena have a starring role.
He went on to answer that he was in discussion why Jackie Chan & Chris Tucker. They were working on the premise that the movies main theme would be about a tennis champion being abducted by the mob.
In the movie the Chris Tucker character was childhood friends with what would be I presume the ‘Serena’ character. Well that’s what it sounded like when he was describing the plot.
Although he did articulate that the tennis champion in the movie would be fictional, and not Serena Williams herself.

I thought the first two movies were great fun! Who knows!

I think it would work, but don't try to work the tennis theme in there. 90% of Americans don't know what it is.

The first "Rush Hour" was a big hit; the second "Rush Hour" was not such a hit. I imagine the third one will be even less so. This is a movie with one star who can't act and another one who can't speak english. I think people might be a little tired of the premise.

Besides, I thought Serena didn't want to play a tennis player. Isn't that why she turned down "Wimbledon"?

Serena: "For the last time, Brett, I don't want to play a tennis player. I turned down the role in 'Wimbledon,' and I'm turning you down."

Brett: "We'll pay you twice what they offered you for 'Wimbledon.'"

Serena: "OK."

What an ingenious plot to ruin what could have been a perfectly good movie!

Wasen't their en episode of Charlies Angels like this, Aaron Spelling is SO going to sue...but I would love to see Serena in a Rush hour film...it would be the perfect vechicle for her acting career, if thats the way she wants to go, and it would certainly be a lot of fun.

Maybe they should have some Russian maffia plot and have Anna as Serenas less successfull nemesis. We have to have some Asian theme in there as well, give me time Im working on it...Ill make a hollywood star out of Shinobu Asagoe yet!!!

so you think he's just hanging around Serena to get ideas for his movie? that would be despicable if it turns out to be true

There is a Rush Hour 3, it was announced back in Febuary this year and the plan is to shoot it back to back with Rush Hour 4. Renter is confirmed as the director with a scrip produced by Jeff Eastin. It wont be out until late 2005, early 2006.

Actually, the second Rush Hour grossed more than the first Rush Hour; domestically that is. It(Rush Hour 2) made like $215 million. The first one grossed apx. $140 million.
