Thats right, according to a story read on Worst Previews, Rush Hour 3’s cast will include basketball giant Yao Ming. Of course, the film again stars Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker, who this time, track a villain to the City of Light… Paris.
The story quoted director Brett Ratner as saying “In the first movie Jackie was a fish out of water (in L.A), then Chris was one in the second movie (in Hong Kong). Now they are both fish out of water”. Rush Hour 3’svillains include one played by Hiroyuki Sanada (The Last Samurai). “He’s a brilliant actor with a martial arts background who has done some incredible films,” Ratner continues. Other cast members include Max Von Sydow, director Roman Polanski (dir. The Pianist), soccer-player-turned-movie-heavy Vinnie Jones (X-Men III, Snatch), Yvan Attel (Munich, The Interpreter), and Roselyn Sanchez (Basic, Without a Trace).
