After Dwayne Johnson said that he wants to have John Carpenter involved in the remake, the director said he was "ambivalent" about the project, but added that he may sign on, depending on how much he is paid. He did state that he hasn't been officially contacted by Dwayne Johnson or anyone else involved in the remake, so we'll have to wait and see what happens. As for Kurt Russell, he is expected to reunite with Dwayne Johnson on Universal's Fast & Furious 8, which is slated for release in 2017. What do you think about these new details? Do you think Kurt Russell should be involved in the Big Trouble in Little China remake?

Following the first trailer that arrived last week, RLJ Entertainment has released five character posters for Bone Tomahawk, arriving in theaters October 23. These one-sheets feature Kurt Russell as Sheriff Franklin Hunt, Patrick Wilson as Arthur O'Dwyer, Richard Jenkins as Chicory, Matthew Fox as John Brooder and Lili Simmons as Samantha O'Dwyer. These characters are all part of a small town that bands together in the face of tragedy.
When a group of cannibal savages kidnap settlers from the small town of Bright Hope, an unlikely team of gunslingers, led by Sheriff Franklin Hunt (Kurt Russell), sets out to bring them home. But their enemy is more ruthless than anyone could have imagined, putting their mission - and survival itself - in serious jeopardy. This is a gritty action-packed thriller chronicling a terrifying rescue mission in the Old West. This film will actually be the first of two Westerns for Kurt Russell this year, with The Hateful Eight hitting theaters on Christmas Day.Read More
John Carpenter revealed in an online interview last week that he is 'fine' with the remake as he did not write the original script. 'No harm, no foul.' He remarked, so it's not likely that he will be coming on to collaborate on the screenplay, which already has Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller (X-Men: First Class) signed to pen the script. No director is attached yet, but it's not likely that John Carpenter will sign on in that capacity either. He hasn't directed a movie since 2010's The Ward. He did serve as a producer on the 2005 remake of his movie The Fog, so it's most likely that he will be asked to serve as an executive producer if nothing else.
Dwayne Johnson and Kurt Russell share the screen right now in the blockbuster hit sequel Furious 7. Do you think they discussed the remake on the set of that movie? Do you think Dwayne Johnson may be headed down the right path with this remake? Or is it clearly a really bad idea? Let us know know your thoughts in the comments section! Hopefully a director will be announced soon.Read More

Back in April, we reported that Quentin Tarantino is working on a new draft of the script with a different ending, and that production may start in the winter. However, another report from May revealed that shooting is reportedly set to begin this November in Wyoming.
Of course, the movie almost never happened at all, after the first draft of his script leaked back in January, which prompted the filmmaker to file a lawsuit against Gawker Media shortly thereafter. Quentin Tarantino revealed after the leak that he was shelving the production, but the filmmaker had a change of heart, instead hosting a live reading of the script.Read More
