Dwayne Johnson Will Not Be Portraying Jack Burton in the ‘Big Trouble in Little China’ Sequel

Fans of Kurt Russel’s portrayal of Jack Burton should breathe a sigh of relief because according to an exclusive report by Collider, Dwayne Johnson will not be portraying everyone’s favorite reluctant hero in the planned remake of John Carpenter’s 1986 genre-bender, Big Trouble in Little China.

Hiram Garcia, president of production at Seven Bucks Productions (a company founded by co-CEOs Johnson and Dany Garcia) and one of the producers of the upcoming Big Trouble in Little China, stated that “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.” read more

He states that he was the civilian pilot who first reported the incident from the skies. Here’s what he had to say on the subject:

“I was flying [his son Oliver] to go see his girlfriend, and we were on approach. I saw six lights over the airport in absolute uniform in a V shape.
