Subject: Another remake!!!!! Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson in ‘Big Trouble in Little China’

Written By: Philip Eno on 06/02/15 at 5:56 am

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson to Star in ‘Big Trouble in Little China’ Remake.

20th Century Fox is excited about a new take from “X-Men: First Class” writers Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is in negotiations to star in and produce a remake of John Carpenter‘s cult classic “Big Trouble in Little China” that will be written by “X-Men: First Class” scribes Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz, multiple individuals familiar with the project have told TheWrap.

A representative for 20th Century Fox did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Johnson is making a deal to play Jack Burton, an all-American trucker who gets dragged into a centuries-old mystical battle in San Francisco’s Chinatown.

Let's see.

Assault on Precinct 13 ☑
Halloween ☑
The Fog ☑
Escape From New York. .
The Thing ☑
Big Trouble in Little China ☑

So now the Dean Cundey Five will all have remakes. How much longer till we get remakes of...?

They Live
Prince of Darkness
Christine
In the Mouth of Madness
Village of the Damned
Vampires
Ghosts of Mars
The Ward (His most recent movie, but you never know in Hollywood)
Elvis (1979 TV movie with Kurt Russell)
Escape from LA

Nonetheless, it's The Rock. He can probably make even the worst movie entertaining. (I still have never seen, nor plan to, Tooth Fairy.  ;D :P) It'll (hopefully) be better than what Hollywood did to The Fog or what Rob Zombie did to Halloween (especially the 2009 sequel).

Just re-release the original film, as in the manner of Disney.
