Even though the Rush Hour franchise continued down the slippery slope with the third installment, Chris Tucker and Brett Ratner aren't blaming one another. The duo is instead sticking together (with New Line in tow) to adapt Mr. S: My Life With Frank Sinatra.

New Line, Brett Ratner and Tucker to Adapt Mr. S: My Life With Frank Sinatra

New Line has optioned the rights to the book "Mr. S: My Life With Frank Sinatra," with Ratner attached to direct and produce and Tucker eyeing the starring role of Sinatra valet George Jacobs.

The book is a tell-all penned by Jacobs and William Stadiem, who will also handle the responsibilities of writing a script. Though the book concentrates on Sinatra it weaves in other celebrities including Marilyn Monroe, Peter Lawford, the Kennedys, Ava Gardner, Humphrey Bogart, Mia Farrow and Elvis Presley.

"It's like a love story between two very unlikely people," Stadiem said. "Brett is a Rat Pack obsessive, and so it's fun to work with someone so passionate about the period. I think he's channeling Frank sometimes."

Ratner has a first-look deal at New Line, a contract that has helped create Money Talks and the Rush Hour trilogy -- all of which starring Tucker.

In recent years Tucker has become an exclusive entity to Ratner. (or so it seems)
