News: Dwayne Johnson’s Upcoming Big Trouble in Little China is Not a Reboot

Exciting news as it’s now revealed that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s Big Trouble in Little China will not be a reboot, but a separate movie in the same universe. In an interview with Collider president of production at Seven Bucks Productions, The Rock’s production company, said this.

“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.”

Presently Ashley E. Miller and Zack Stentz are working on the script, while Miller also works on a reboot of Red Sonja and Stentz is writing the Booster Gold film for DC.
