John­son off to Lit­tle China

Rutherglen Reformer - - The Ticket -

Fresh from bat­tling an epic earth­quake in San An­dreas, Dwayne John­son is now turn­ing his hand to a re­make of 1982 John Car­pen­ter adventure Big Trou­ble in Lit­tle China.

The part-time wrestler (pic­tured right) is in ne­go­ti­a­tions to star in and pro­duce the fresh take on the bizarre mash-up of sci-fi, com­edy and hor­ror.

Drop­ping out of a new project, though, is Sophia Cop­pola with the Lost in Trans­la­tion direc­tor walk­ing away from Uni­ver­sal’s re­make of The Lit­tle Mer­maid, cit­ing cre­ative dif­fer­ences with the stu­dio.
