“Scrubs” creator Bill Lawrence has confirmed that CBS’ upcoming TV series reboot of the “Rush Hour” movies will utilise the same Detectives Lee and Carter characters from the films.
Lawrence, who will produce the show, tells NuketheFridge: “New plot, same characters. A little younger, a little different, fish out of water. It’s a cool script. I’m psyched about it.”
So once again we’ll see a loud-mouthed LAPD detective teaming up with a reserved Hong Kong Police Force inspector. Will they cast an expert in martial arts in the Chan role? “The character will be a martial artist, but you know how TV works. I’m going to go with the best actor and then I’ll make anything work.”
Brett Ratner, who directed the three films, will also serve as executive producer on the new series.
