Chris Tucker, Jackie Chan and director Brett Ratner have signed up to make a third Rush Hour movie.

After years of negotiations and speculation the trio will team up again for Rush Hour 3, with a fourth film still to be determined.

As part of the deal, funnyman Tucker will earn $20 million (GBP11.1 million) for signing up and a further 20 per cent of the gross. Chan will pick up $15 million (GBP8.3 million) and 15 per cent of the gross.

Rush Hour 2 was a global smash hit, raking in over $320 million (GBP177.8 million).

Shooting on the third film will begin next summer (06). It's expected to hit cinemas in the summer of 2007.
