BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA
Word on the street is that John Carpenter’s 1986 flick Big Trouble in Little China is to be remade. Not only that, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, believed to be a huge fan of the original, is to play the lead role of Jack Burton, the iconic role played by Russell in Carpenter’s movie. X-Men: First Class’ Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz are currently working on the script for the redo, with Johnson himself producing along with Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia. Johnson has already mentioned that he has “nothing but
and hopes even to bring in the horror master himself. Whether Carpenter has any involvement remains to be seen, but the response from fans has been mixed, to say the least.
Plot-wise, the original movie centred on Jack Burton, a trucker who winds up in the middle of supernatural shenanigans in San Francisco’s Chinatown, and we can imagine the re-do will follow much the same path.
