The Rock fills in Kurt Russell’s shoes in Big Trouble in Little China remake?


Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s earthquake movie, San Andreas, was number one at the box office over the weekend, and the Rock mania isn’t dying down anytime soon. We’ll get to see him as Black Adam in the upcoming Shazam movie from WB and DC, and we’ll also get to see him as the star in the Big Trouble in Little China remake, according to The Wrap.

The 1986 original was directed by John Carpenter and starred Kurt Russell as Jack Burton. It took place in Chinatown, San Francisco, where Burton, a trucker, becomes a reluctant hero and has to deal with magic and martial arts.

The site says that the movie will be written by Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz (X-Men: First Class), with Johnson playing the new Jack Burton.

Johnson is producing the film along with his partners, Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia.
