It is already confirmed earlier that Roman Polanski will star in the highly anticipated "Rush Hour 3." The actor reportedly is slated to portray the role of a French police officer who harasses Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan's characters in several scenes while the stars battle a wing of a Chinese organized-crime family.
Brett Ratner told Daily Variety that he persuaded Polanski to appear after a chance encounter while in pre-production in Paris. "Roman is my favorite director and my favorite actor, so I asked Jeff Nathanson to write him into the movie," said the director.
"Rush Hour 3" is of comedy, action, thriller genre and has been scheduled to hit worldwide theaters August 10th next year.
