It looks like Rush Hour 3 will have its very own Chinese version of Andre the Giant. Named Sun Ming Ming, the Chinese basketball player standing in at 7 feet 9 inches will be just one of the foes Chris Tucker is supposed to take on.

Sun Ming Ming in Rush Hour 3

MTV recently ran a report discussing Rush Hour 3's parody to a scene in Bruce Lee's Game of Death; the film will do the opposite. This parody would not have been possible if it wasn't for Sun Ming Ming.

The "fight scene" can hardly be called that, since Sun Ming Ming doesn't really have to do much to thwart Tucker, whose punches land nowhere. It was inspired by Bruce Lee's 1978 movie, "Game of Death," in which the martial artist bested, of all people, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

"It's the reverse, so now instead of a Chinese guy fighting a big black guy, you have a small black guy fighting a big Chinese guy," Ratner said. "I'm not going to show you the outcome, because I want it to be a surprise, but this guy is big." (If "Game of Death" is any indication, a headlock could prove helpful to Tucker.)

Though Tucker is the one to take Sun Ming Ming on, Jackie Chan claims that it is he doing all the work.

"Chris has nothing to do," Chan laughed. "He just makes noise. I'm the one who fights. The next one, I should do the talking and he should do the fighting!"

Check out the full report over at MTV.

Rush Hour 3 opens to theatres on August 10th.
