A Big Trouble in Little China remake is on the cards and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is pegged to star, according to TheWrap.
Johnson and his producing partners at Seven Bucks Productions, Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia, pitched the remake to rights-owner Fox, which released the original film. “Big Trouble in Little China” is one of Johnson’s favorite movies, and Miller and Stentz have already closed a deal to write the script.
The original 1986 starring Kurt Russell and Kim Cattrall only grossed $11 million at the domestic box office, but it is revered as a cult classic and a cable TV staple that fans can’t resist watching from when it airs.
It seems like The Rock really is becoming a modern day Stallone/Arnold… almost.
