This dynamic duo is ready to make a comeback.

In honor of Jackie Chan‘s 65th birthday on Sunday, his longtime friend and costar Chris Tucker posted a series of photos on Instagram — and one was a total tease.

The photo showed Tucker and Chan posing together, each holding up four fingers, once again hinting at the possibility of another sequel to the classic movie series, Rush Hour.

The pair is known for playing popular cop duo Chief Inspector Lee and Detective James Carter in the blockbuster series — the first of which came out in 1998. The movie did so well Rush Hour 2 and Rush Hour 3 quickly followed.

Now, 12 years later, fans are still patiently waiting for the next sequel to be officially announced after years of rumors.

In late January, Tucker revealed that Rush Hour 4 was in the works.

Two years ago, Chan confirmed that Rush Hour 4 was in the works during an interview on Power 106 Los Angeles.

“[It’s coming] next year,” he told the outlet in 2017. “For the last seven years, we’ve been turning down the script, turning down the script. Yesterday, we just agreed.”

Chan went on to say that he hoped filming would start the following year, 2018, “if Chris Tucker agrees” to do it.

“It’s about [having] time to make it,” Chan explained. “Otherwise, Rush Hour 4, we’re all old men. I tell Chris Tucker, ‘Before we get old, please do Rush Hour 4.”

And from the looks of this recent picture, he just might have agreed, but we’ll just have to wait and see.
