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.
This is one of my favorite old school action movies from the 80’s, “Big Trouble In Little China” starring Kurt Russell. Also, directed by John Carpenter. It’s an action movie and comedy both at the same time.It tells the story of a trucker named, Jack Burton, who agreed, to pick up Wang Chi’s fiance at the airport. Of course, she gets kidnapped by this man named Lo Pan because she has green eyes and he needs someone with green eyes, so he can regain his physical form. Jack also gets his truck stolen. So Jack, had no choice but to rescue this woman from Lo Pan, and try to get his truck back.
This film is what I call a classic, and it’s one of those movies that you must see, in order to call yourself a true movie buff. Everyone should know about this film, and if you haven’t, then you don’t know your movie history like you think you do. I think it’s one of Carpenter’s best films. It’s another one of those movies I can watch over and over, and never get tired of it. This movie is so entertaining. I really hope Hollywood doesn’t remake this flick, ’cause the film would be so hard to copy. Kurt is a badass in this one too. If you haven’t seen it, do so, soon!
