There is good news for the fans of action and comedy movie franchise, Rush Hour, that a TV series on this movie is ordered by CBS on 8 May 2015.
I am sure that none of you forget the characters of Detective Lee and Detective Carter, who entertain you in the Rush hour film series. These roles are played by Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker respectively. There chemistry was outstanding. The action sequence of Jackie and comedy punches of Chris make it more popular.
Right now, fans are waiting for the next season of this franchise, but nothing is confirmed by the makers of this movie franchise about the next movie. They only confirmed that they will develop the 4th part of Rush Hour only when they got a good script.
So, to reduce the wait of fans, CBS is going to introduce these characters on small screen. Now, you are thinking who will play these roles in this TV series. Here is little upsetting news that in this TV series there will be new faces, Jon Foo and Justin Hires, in the role of Detective Lee and Detective Carter respectively.
With these stars Aimee Garcia (Seargeant Didi Diaz), Wendie Malick (Captain Lindsay Cole), Page Kennedy (Gerald), Jessika Van (Kin Lee) and Krik Fox (Donovan) will share the screen.
As this series based on the film franchise of same name so, it will also have the story of detective Lee of Hong Kong police and Detective Carter of LAPD detective, who came together to solve some international criminal cases.
This series is developing by Blake McCormick and Bill Lawrence. As this is based on the hit movie series and have large fan following. This is the reason that large numbers of people show their trust on this TV series and investing their money as producer. In this list, there are:-
- Bill Lawrence
- Jeff Ingold
- Blake McCormick
- Brett Ratner
- Steve Franks
Most of them are also the part of the Rush Hour movie franchise.
It will be distributed by the Warner Bros. Television Distribution. This TV series is set to premier in January 2016.
As it is a copy so, it has to show some different from the movie franchise. In This TV series there is a lot of pressure on the actors, Jon Foo and Justine that they perform much better than the Jackie and Chris, because people watched it, keeping the actual movie in their mind.
I am also a big fan of this movie franchise so; I will defiantly miss Chan and Chris and appreciate the Foo and Justine only when they can create an environment like the movie. The trailer of this TV series has released and that is not attracting me to much there is lots of fault. So, I will advise you to watch it if you do not have any other option or you can wait for the 4th part of this movie franchise.
Let’s see how much buzz can this movie able to create. Nothing more have revealed about this TV series so, for more updates stay tuned with us.
