Dwayne Johnson (WWE’s The Rock) is on talks to take the role of Jack Burton (originally played by Kurt Russel) for John Carpenter‘s Big Trouble in Little China (1986) Remake. I know Johnson has been nailing a lot of his roles lately but I am not sure he will pull off a nice copy of Kurt Russel’s performance so he has to make this role his own. Not sure how he will tackle the role but I am on board to see. Ashely Miller and Zack Stentz (Thor (2011), X-Men: First Class (2011)) are set to write with John Carpenter’s role in the air, maybe he will play a role in production because I do not think he will return to direct. What do you think about Dwayne Johnson as Jack Burton in the Big Trouble in Little China Remake?
