Ratner’s Rush Hour 3 wish list

Ratner’s Rush Hour 3 wish list
Clint

Who does he want in the sequel?


Brett Ratner’s never been bashful about talking about who he’d like to have in his movies – He said Anthony Hopkins was his pick for Jor-El in “Superman Returns”, for instance, long before he’d even told the studio of his intentions – and now he’s unveiled his “wish list” for “Rush Hour 3”.

Ratner tells Coming Soon that he’d love to get basketballer Yao Ming, Aishwarya Rai, Gong Li and Tony Jaa for the next film. Who’s got a woody for the foreign biggies, then?

Hmm.OK. Nice picks. But are they prepared to sell their souls for the cabbage? Guess we’ll see.

“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.”

“Rush Hour 3” starts filming this Summer in New York and Paris.
