BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA
It’s the remake, reboot, sequel, or whatever that no one seems to want but we’re getting it anyways
When I first heard the news that they were going to reviving one of the finest movies in existence of film history, I nearly curled up into a ball and died. I wasn’t shocked that they were trying to reboot Big Trouble In Little China, I mean, we do live in a time of constant originality. Everything is a reboot, a sequel, a prequel. This is a universe that has been laying dormant for years, all that is about to change. If I am right, we are gonna be seeing a hell of a lot of movies set in this world.
So now, the question remains and is more important than ever: What would Jack Burton do at a time like this?
From a recent interview with 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.”
I am not expecting greatness in any shape or form but I will give it a chance. It is far too early to play, judge, jury and executioner so early into pre-production. Expect to hear more as news is announced
