Talk about some weird casting news: Seems that not only Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan will be appearing in the long-anticipated (and I’ve no idea why) "Rush Hour 3," but director Brett Ratner has also found room for folks like Max Von Sydow, Roman Polanski, and Hiroyuki Sanada. Weird.
From USA Today: ""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," says director Brett Ratner ("X-Men: The Last Stand"). Targeted for an August 2007 release, Rush Hour 3’s villains 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 says. Also in the cast: Max Von Sydow and Roman Polanski."
Like I said… Weird.
