Remember hearing. While back that The Rock was going to star in the Big Trouble In Little China remake? Well the good news is it's not a remake after all, it's simply set in the same world.
In an interview with Collider, Seven Bucks Productions’ (The Rock’s production company) president Hiram Garcia wants to set the record straight. You see, Johnson isn’t trying to be this generation’s Jack Burton. His “Big Trouble in Little China” is going to be a sequel of sorts.
Here’s what Garcia had to say about the upcoming sequel
“There’s a lot of things going on with [‘Big Trouble in Little China’]. We are in the process of developing that, and let me tell you, the idea is not to actually remake ‘Big Trouble in Little China.’ You can’t remake a classic like that, so what we’re planning to do is we’re going to continue the story. We’re going to continue the universe of ‘Big Trouble in Little China.’ Everything that happened in the original exists and is standalone and I think there’s only one person that could ever play Jack Burton, so Dwayne would never try and play that character. So we are just having a lot of fun. We’re actually in a really great space with the story that we’ve cracked. But yeah, no remake. It is a continuation, and we are deep into development on that as well, and I think you’ll start hearing some things about that probably soon.”
