Sarkissian was vrij ontevreden over het derde deel. "I'm trying to do it closer to how I did Rush Hour 1," vertelde hij. "More down to earth. More gritty. Introduce two new characters and make it real the way the first one was. I personally was not happy with the third one. I thought 1 and 2 were very good. I think 3 got out of hand a little bit. It's not a matter of just bringing them back to do another segment of that or a sequel to it by putting them in another city and having them bicker. I don't want that. I want something new."
Tot slot heeft hij al vrij serieuze plannen over het plot van de film. Dit moet in een soortgelijke trend gebeuren als Fast Five, die tot een ander genre behoorde dan de voorgaande films. "They kept the characters. They took them and they put them in a whole different world. They put them in the world of a heist movie and it worked... Maybe Chris is now married. Maybe Jackie is married to Octavia Spencer. I don't know. Married to Chris' cousin. They live in Shanghai. Chris goes out to visit them... I want something energetic."
Op dit moment werkt Sarkissian nog als uitvoerend producent aan de aankomende televisieserie Vegas.
