Odd-pair action franchise Rush Hour is taking a page out of the playbook of rival '90 - '00s odd-pair action movie franchise Bad Boys, by adding a female-centric spinoff to the franchise. However, unlike Bad Boys' sister TV series LA's Finest, this Rush Hour female spinoff will be a movie project, and it apparently has one big star already attached!

THS is dropping the report of this female Rush Hour spinoff film, and the site also reports that Chinese superstar BingBing Li (The Meg, X-Men: Days of Future Past) has been attached in the Jackie Chan role. There's no word yet on who would take over the Chris Tucker role (but it's not hard to think that names like Tiffany Haddish *must* be circulating).

If the movie ends up grossing $10k, its failure will most certainly be because moviegoers are sexist. It will completely ignore the fact that people aren't clamoring for a gender swapped reboot. I'm betting even a sequel with the original cast would not do that well. Rush Hour 3 is sitting at 18% on Rotten Tomatoes. That movie is pretty much played out. Swapping genders isn't going to drive people to the theaters.
