    The magic number is four, and fans are abuzz with the promise of "Rush Hour 4", the latest sequel to the classic blockbuster movie series. PEOPLE reported that on the occasion of Jackie Chan's 65th birthday, his long-standing partner in cinematic crime, Chris Tucker, posted a teasing photo. Both stars were pictured holding up four fingers, sparking speculation of a Rush Hour 4.

    The pair is adored for their portrayal of the dynamic cop duo, Chief Inspector Lee and Detective James Carter. The first Rush Hour movie, released in 1998, was such a hit that sequels Rush Hour 2 and Rush Hour 3 swiftly followed. Now, over a decade later, fans have been on tenterhooks, awaiting official word on the much-rumored sequel.

    A glimpse of hope came earlier when Chris Tucker divulged that Rush Hour 4 was in the works. “We’re working on a few things [for] the script. Jackie wants to do it. I want to do it. The studio wants to do it,” Tucker revealed on the Winging It podcast, hosted by NBA stars Vince Carter and Kent Bazemore, according to Ebony.com.

    Further fueling the anticipation, Jackie Chan confirmed two years prior in an interview on Power 106 Los Angeles that the fourth installment was being planned. “For the last seven years, we’ve been turning down the script, turning down the script. Yesterday, we just agreed,” Chan said.

    Chan expressed a heartfelt desire to kickstart the filming process, if Chris Tucker agreed. "It’s about [having] time to make it,” Chan asserted, humorously adding, “Otherwise, Rush Hour 4, we’re all old men. I tell Chris Tucker, 'Before we get old, please do Rush Hour 4.'"

    Considering the photo teased by Chris Tucker, it seems Chan's plea may have been answered. The picture may have been cryptic, but it was enough to keep fans hopeful. Despite the suspense, fans are eagerly awaiting to see if the charismatic duo will return to the big screen once again.
