File this news under “Why?!”. Dwayne Johnson is currently in talks to star in a remake of the 80’s cult classic.
The Rock and his production company, 7 Bucks Entertainment, have been pitching the idea of a remake to Fox. No news or official word from Fox about the status of the talks, but it has been confirmed that X-Men:First Class writers Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz have been assigned to the project.
The Rock has said in the past that Big Trouble In Little China is one of his favorite movies. Well thats obvious since he wants to bankroll the remake and star in it!
The original Big Trouble In Little China never was a stellar box office hit, but has become “One of those movies” that everyone from a die hard 80’s fan to the movie geek has seen multiple times.
