Ratner Names His "Rush Hour 3" Dream Cast - Yao Ming, Gong Li and Tony Jaa!

ComingSoon.net recently had a brief chit-chat with filmmaker Brett Ratner, and this time the focus of the conversation was NOT on the upcoming "X-Men: The Last Stand," but Ratner’s next flick, "Rush Hour 3," which begins production on August 16th.

The specific topic of discussion was Mr. Ratner’s ultra-wish-list dream cast for "Rush Hour 3," and it would certainly make for one international action comedy!

"Obviously, Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan are back, but Ratner talked with ComingSoon.net about some of the actors he’d love to bring in for the third installment. "I’ll tell you who I’m going after," he said with a burst of excitement. "I want Yao Ming, the basketball player, to be in it. I want to recreate the fight sequence from the Bruce Lee movie where he fights Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, but I want to do the reverse; I want Chris Tucker to fight Yao Ming. I want that to happen. I want Aishwarya Rai [the biggest female star in Bollywood] and I would love Gong Li [last seen in Memoirs of a Geisha] to be in the movie. There’s some people that I want, but I don’t know if I’ll be able to get them. Tony Jaa [star of last year’s Ong Bak: Thai Warrior] I want, too. I love him.""
