Chris Tucker will finally branch out and be known for more than just his Rush Hour movies. Lots of talk going on, but we might be seeing him again in a variety of new movies. Two potential supporting roles are in the works for Mr. James Carter.
The Silver Linings Playbook, based on a book by Matthew Quick, will star Bradley Cooper as a man recently released from a mental institution after being there for 4 years and tries to reconcile with his wife. Chris Tucker is in talks to play one of Cooper’s friends in the institution, along with Jennifer Lawrence and Robert De Niro. Is this possibly a too-serious-role for Chris? Maybe…
Neighborhood Watch is the other movie Chris Tucker may be co-starring in. A sci-fi flick starring Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn and a skinnier Jonah Hill as a group of neighborhood guys, or bored dads, who join the neighborhood watch as an excuse to get more time to hang out together and then of course some funny/strange stuff happens (or else why would they label it sci-fi?)
These movies probably won’t be out until 2013, but its great to know that Chris Tucker is back +_O
