Despite recent quotes from producer Hiram Garcia about the upcoming Big Trouble In Little China movie starring Dwayne Johnson about being an “continuation”, writer-director John Carpenter isn’t terribly impressed with what they’re doing.
While speaking with CinemaBlend, John Carpenter didn’t hold back on his opinion on the soft-reboot/sequel/remake (whatever they end up doing) and it sounds like the people involved haven’t including him in the development.
“They want a movie with Dwayne Johnson. That’s what they want. So they just picked that title. They don’t give a shit about me and my movie. That movie wasn’t a success.”
Keep in mind, the project is still only in the script phase without a director and considering Johnson’s busy schedule it’s unlikely going to happen anytime soon. There is a good chance it won’t ever happen if Carpenter continues to pile on the shade, as fans would be less likely to support it despite producer chatter of it not being a complete remake.
