One of the most talked about movies from the 1980s is being rebooted, and it is going to star Dwayne Johnson, the man that has revitalized several film franchises. Reports have surfaced that he is finalizing a deal to star in Big Trouble in Little China. Johnson would be playing the role of a truck driver named Jack Burton. The iconic role was previously played by Kurt Russell. Johnson is also going to be producing the movie himself.
