Dwayne Johnson To Star in 'Big Trouble in Little China' Remake

June 2, 2015


The cult classic Big Trouble in Little China is getting an upgrade to our modern standard of "big" that is The Rock. The Wrap reports that Dwayne Johnson is in talks to produce a remake of John Carpenter's 1986 film. Johnson would also star, playing Jack Burton--the role made famous by Kurt Russell--a truck driver that gets caught up in a wild, mystical rescue operation in San Francisco's Chinatown. Though, while Russell's Burton bragged that "it's all in the reflexes," assumedly writers Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz will give our new Burton a more appropriate quote for Johnson. Probably, "It's all in being able to crush most man-made objects."
