Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson to star in remake of Big Trouble In Little China

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson is in negotiations to star and produce a remake of the cult action classic Big Trouble In Little China.

According to The Wrap, Johnson will star in the remake, which will have a script from X-Men: First Class writers Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller, both of whom are signed up to pen the remake. 

John Carpenter's 1982 original starred Kurt Russell as a truck driver named Jack Burton who gets dragged into a mysterious battle in San Francisco's Chinatown, a battle which involves an ancient sorcerer and a whole lot of martial arts. 

Though a box office flop upon release, the movie has become a cult classic and still performed well on home entertainment. 

Dwayne Johnson can currrently be seen in action thriller San Andreas, which debuted at Number One at the UK box office over the weekend. Click below to watch hmv.com's interview with the cast and director.
