NEW ‘BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA’ FILM WILL BE A SEQUEL, NOT A REMAKE





Well I guess this is good news of a sort. John Carpenter’s Big Trouble in Little China wasn’t that well received back in 1986, but the offbeat fantasy actioner quickly garnered a strong cult following and is now much beloved. The news that Dwayne Johnson was going to produce and star in a remake can’t have made many people very happy. However, it’s recently been reported that it’s not actually going to be a remake. As producer Hiram Garcia told ‘Collider’:

“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.”

Now that Johnson is not going to try to fill the awesome shoes of Kurt Russell, I feel rather better about this. There’s plenty of room for exploration of this crazy universe too.

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
