On the heels of his supporting role in the TWC hit, Silver Linings Playbook, Chris Tucker has signed up to star in the comedy Second Honeymoon.
To be directed by Phil Joanou (Gridiron Gang), the film’s synopsis, courtesy of The Wrap, reads:
Story follows a married couple who return to Antigua on their second honeymoon in an effort to spice things up. However, the legacy they left ten years ago comes back to haunt both of them, and before they know it, the trip is less about trying to reconnect with their younger, wilder selves and more about trying to get off the island alive.
Chris will star as one-half of the couple – his first leading role since sharing the screen with Jackie Chan in the Rush Hour series.
Relativity Media will finance, produce and distribute the film, which Chris Tucker will executive produce.
As for what’s on Tucker’s upcoming slate, there’ve been rumors of a Rush Hour 4 movie, as well as another buddy-action-comedy with Jackie Chan, tentatively titled Skip Tracer.
Tucker is also set to host the 2013 BET Awards, which takes place on June 30.
Any guesses on what actress (assuming the other half of the couple is a woman) will play Tucker’s wife in Second Honeymoon?
