dwayne johnson san andreas premiere gi Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson bringing 'Big Trouble in Little China' remake to theaters near you
Hold on to your seats, “Big Trouble in Little China” lovers — Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is in negotiations to headline in the remake of John Carpenter’s fan-favorite film. 

The ’80s cult classic, which originally starred Kurt Russell and Kim Cattrall, follows an All-American trucker who is pulled into an ancient mystical battle in San Francisco’s Chinatown. The Wrap reports the “San Andreas” star is reportedly in talks with 20th Century Fox to play Russell’s character, Jack Burton.

He also plans to co-produce the project alongside his 7 Bucks Entertainment producing partners, Dany and Hiram Garcia. Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz, who wrote “X-Men: First Class” and Marvel’s “Thor,” are set to pen the script. 

If Johnson nabs the role, all he has to do is remember “what ol’ Jack Burton does when the earth quakes”: Look that “big ol’ storm right square in the eye” and say, “Give me your best shot, pal. I can take it.”
