Director Brett Ratner takes on ‘Rush Hour 3’

 

It’s a bright March afternoon on the set of Rush Hour 3, and the mood is tense. After shooting last winter on location in Paris, the production has returned to Los Angeles behind schedule and over budget. The Supermarine Executive Air Terminal of the Santa Monica Airport has been transformed into the Paris–Le Bourget airport, and on the tarmac, stars Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan rehearse what is to be the film’s final scene — a friendly farewell between their characters, LAPD Detective James Carter and Hong Kong police inspector Lee.  

More than 100 days into a shoot that has entailed multiple complicated action and stunt sequences, this should be a cinch. But at the playback monitor, Brett Ratner, the director who has guided the Rush Hour series since the beginning, feels something is off.
