Hollywood Looking to Cast Li Bingbing in Female Version of “Rush Hour”

The latest trend in Hollywood filmmaking is to make gender-flipping reboots, such as 2016’s Ghostbusters and 2018’s Ocean’s 8, both which were female versions of their original counterparts.

According to various sources, Hollywood plans on making a female version of the action-comedy film Rush Hour, Jackie Chan’s (成龍) entry piece of breaking into Hollywood. The first Rush Hour film was released in 1998 and starred Jackie Chan as Lee, a Hong Kong inspector, who has to team up with American detective Carter (portrayed by Chris Tucker) to solve a kidnapping case. Rush Hour went on to release two other sequels, respectively in 2001 and 2007. A fourth Rush Hour film is reportedly in the works, with both Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker expecting to return.

The female version of Rush Hour, on the other hand, is looking to cast Li Bingbing (李冰冰) as the female version of Lee, while the female version of Carter has yet to be decided. Li Bingbing is perhaps best known in Hollywood for her supportive appearances in films Resident Evil: Retribution, Transformers: Age of Extinction, and The Meg.

        @funnlim I dont know, I cant imagine it will be as funny. I liked the female Oceans but I hated the ghostbusters.
