The Rock Wants Kurt Russell & John Carpenter Involved in ‘Big Trouble in Little China’ Remake

The Rock Wants Kurt Russell & John Carpenter Involved in ‘Big Trouble in Little China’ Remake

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.

Kurt Russell Claims Quentin Tarantino Is Shooting ‘The Hateful Eight’ Early Next Year

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.
