When news came down that Dwayne the Rock Johnson would be taking control of the Porkchop Express, fan reaction was more than a little bit mixed. Thankfully, New reports have the film continuing the story. In a new interview with the producer of the film, Hiram Garcia, we found out some of what they have planned to bring the cult classic film back for a new audience.
“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.”
