Chris Tucker to do a Bollywood Remake?

by | June 1, 2006 | Comments

From the "Huh?" Files: Chris Tucker, the guy who’s starred in literally nothing but "Rush Hour" movies over the past ten years, might be signing on to star in a remake of Bollywood film "Munnabhai MBBS," which is about a mafia guy who enrolls in medical school.

From Yahoo! News: ""Munnabhai MBBS" was a hit in India and among South Asians living abroad, and will be remade as "Gangster M.D.," the remake’s director, Mira Nair, was quoted as telling the Mumbai Mirror newspaper.

"Chris Tucker will be playing the main character in the film," said Nair, adding that filming should begin after Tucker finishes making "Rush Hour 3."

Munnabhai MBBS tells the story of a mafia leader who pretends to be a doctor whenever his parents visit him from their village. But when his cover is blown, he decides to better himself by trying to become a doctor — which he hopes will also prove himself to the woman he loves and her father, a hospital superintendent."
