Brett Ratner has been talking about who he wants in Rush Hour 3. Here is what he says through Comingsoon:
Obviously, Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan are back, but Ratner talked with ComingSoon.net about some of the actors he’d love to bring in for the third installment. “I’ll tell you who I’m going after,” he said with a burst of excitement. “I want Yao Ming, the basketball player, to be in it. I want to recreate the fight sequence from the Bruce Lee movie where he fights Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, but I want to do the reverse; I want Chris Tucker to fight Yao Ming. I want that to happen. I want Aishwarya Rai [the biggest female star in Bollywood] and I would love Gong Li [last seen in Memoirs of a Geisha] to be in the movie. There’s some people that I want, but I don’t know if I’ll be able to get them. Tony Jaa [star of last year’s Ong Bak: Thai Warrior] I want, too. I love him.”
I really like Tony Jaa and would love to see him in this film. Rush Hour 3 starts filming on August 16th in Paris and New York, the film will begin in new york and move to paris but Ratner is filming in reverse.
