BIG TROU­BLE IN LIT­TLE CHINA

Starburst Magazine - - Feed Back -

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.
