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

Entertainment website The Wrap is reporting that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is in negotiations to star in and a produce a remake of John Carpenter’s cult classic Big Trouble in Little China.

According to the wrap’s sources, the new movie will be written by X-Men: First Class and Thor scribes Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz.

20th Century Fox, the studio behind the project are yet to confirm the validity of the story but Johnson and his producing partners at Seven Bucks Productions have previously pitched the remake to the studio, which released the original movie and still holds the production rights.

The original movie, released in 1986 and starring Kurt Russell and Kim Cattrall only grossed $11 million at the US box office, but it is now revered as a cult classic.

Given the recent success of Johnson’s latest projects, Fast and Furious 7 which became one of the most successful movies of all time and San Andreas which made back it’s budget in it’s opening weekend, he is now considered one of the most bankable stars in Hollywood and that reputation may be too difficult for Fox to ignore.

Until we get confirmation you can get your Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson fix in cinemas at the moment in his latest blockbuster, disaster movie San Andreas.
