Some interesting movie news just came out today that Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock is in negotiations to star as the new Jack Burton in the “Big Trouble In Little China” remake. I’m sure many of you have seen the 1986 original with Kurt Russell in the leading role and the original was directed by the legendary, John Carpenter!
“Big Trouble In Little China” is one of my favorite films and would make an interesting remake. This film deserves an updated version, taken place in our present time.
Some of you may go, “Oh no, not another remake”. Don’t worry. Knowing how strict John Carpenter is about remakes, he won’t allow the “Big Trouble” remake to make it exactly like his version at all. I remember when Rob Zombie asked Carpenter that he wanted to remake the first “Halloween”, Carpenter was all cool with it as long as he made it a different film and not make it exactly like Carpenter’s. I would think Carpenter would want the same for this remake.
I like the Rock as an action star. I’m interested on how they’re gonna pull this remake off.
