Martial-arts star won’t be co-starring in Ratner film


A month or two ago, Director Brett Ratner mentioned he’d love to get rising martial-arts movie star Tony Jaa (“Ong Bak”) in “Rush Hour 3”. Today, Jaa tells Rotten Tomatoes that that won’t be happening.

According to the actor, Ratner did call, and there were talks about him joining the production, but due to scheduling difficulties (he’s busy doing the “Ong Bak” sequel), they just couldn’t work it out.

No doubt Ratner wanted Jaa to play a villain in the film, which pits sirs Chan and Tucker against a Chinese Triad crew.

The director is also believed to be in talks with former “Seinfeld” star Michael Richards, his “X-Men 3” star Ian McKellen, Vinnie Jones and director Roman Polanski about playing parts in the sequel.
