Dwayne Johnson to star in videogame adaptation Rampage

23 June 2015 11:05 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Monsters attacking buildings, and only Dwayne Johnson can stop them? Get ready for the Rampage movie...

Ah, Rampage. The classic videogame where you played one of a trio of monsters, with your primary aim being to tear down big buildings. If you got to eat a few humans, or punch the occasional car, then even better.

The game was followed by a bunch of sequels, and back in 2011, it was revealed that a possible Rampage movie was being planned. That, though, came to nothing. But now? Rampage is very much back on the movie agenda.

New Line Cinema is pressing ahead with the project, and it's recruited Dwayne Johnson to star. The plan is to shoot the movie once Johnson is done working on Fast & Furious 8. That suggests that Rampage should be heading to cinemas for 2018, but try not to quote us on that.

It sounds a less contentious »

The Rock Talks 'Big Trouble in Little China' Remake, Plus: James Cameron on 'Terminator: Genisys'

8 June 2015 4:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

The Rock Talks About That Big Trouble in Little China Remake If there's anyone who can do justice to a Big Trouble in Little China remake and lend it such much-needed nerd cred, it's Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. The success of his most recent projects has turned the former wrestler into one of today's hottest in-demand stars, and he'll need all of that star power to deliver a Big Trouble remake fans of the classic John Carpenter movie will be proud of. But what else can he bring to the recently-announced movie? How about John Carpenter? While speaking about the project to EW, The Rock says he wants Carpenter involved at some level. “I loved reading the reactions from the fans, that they were so polarized – I’m the same way,&rdquo...

Rock Wants Carpenter On "Little China" Remake

8 June 2015 8:39 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The announcement last week of a remake of John Carpenter's iconic 1986 cult classic "Big Trouble in Little China" with Dwayne Johnson taking over the Jack Burton role was met with surprise by many. One such person who was surprised was Carpenter himself who admitted he read about it when everyone else did and is not involved in any way.

Speaking with Entertainment Weekly today, Johnson says he wants to bring Carpenter onboard the film:

"I loved reading the reactions from the fans, that they were so polarized - I'm the same way. My response is: know that I come to the project with nothing but love and respect for the original, which is why we want to bring on John Carpenter."

One difference between 'Big Trouble' and other Carpenter films is that the director did not write the film's screenplay, which is why Fox did not need to consult Carpenter about it. »

The Rock wants John Carpenter in on Big Trouble

8 June 2015 7:22 AM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

It’s hard to imagine anyone less riled up about an impending Big Trouble in Little China remake than original director John Carpenter. We should all have the Zen of the master filmmaker, who’s already seen a number of his great works reimagined. Would he even be interested then in having input on the recently announced…

The Rock to Test His Reflexes with 'Big Trouble in Little China' Remake

2 June 2015 10:39 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson isn't ready to leave Los Angeles just yet. The former wrestler will ditch his helicopter in San Andreas and jump in a truck towards San Francisco's Chinatown as he'll star in and produce a remake of John Carpenter's cult-classic Big Trouble in Little China, a property once again set up at 20th Century Fox. Johnson will play Jack Burton, an American-as-can-be truck driver who winds up fighting centuries-old Chinese entities within the back alleys and various abandoned buildings in San Francisco. Carpenter's leading man of choice Kurt Russell frontlined the original film, but the 1986 feature only grossed $11.1 million from its $20 million production. Chances are Johnson will bring more cash to the new project, especially with the $54.5 million his last starring vehicle earned during its opening weekend. Johnson's producing partners, Dany and Hiram Garcia from Seven Bucks Productions, also are on board and were the ones »

Dwayne Johnson Is Eyeing a Big Trouble in Little China Remake

2 June 2015 12:26 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Dwayne Johnson is looking at starring in and producing a Big Trouble in Little China remake, the Wrap reports. The Rock would play Jack Burton, the protagonist-slash-trucker who gets sucked into a "centuries-old mystical battle" in San Francisco's Chinatown. John Carpenter's cult classic has X-Men: First Class scribes Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz onboard to pen the script. Big Trouble is reportedly one of Johnson's favorite movies — no pressure. Bring on the muscular wisecracks and slapstick. »

John Carpenter's 'Big Trouble In Little China' Is Getting a Remake Starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson

1 June 2015 9:40 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

John Carpenter's Big Trouble in Little China is about as sublimely perfect as a movie can get. Kurt Russell is just impossibly good as Jack Burton, a bumbling truck driver who finds himself caught up in an increasingly weird plot involving kidnapped women and an ancient Chinese sorcerer who needs to make them his brides in order to regain his true form. The phrase "they don't make them like they used to" doesn't even apply to Big Trouble in Little China, because nobody ever really made movies like it. Big Trouble is a truly unique gem for its stars, its genre, and its director. And it still gets better and better every single time you watch it.  So of course it's getting remade. But it's not all doom and gloom! According to The Wrap, the...

The Rock To Headline Big Trouble In Little China Remake

1 June 2015 5:23 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Clearly undeterred by the wave of negativity and the endless development limbo cycles that have afflicted the attempt to reboot Escape From New York, 20th Century Fox thinks it has the right team to remake another cult John Carpenter/Kurt Russell film. The studio has Dwayne Johnson negotiating to star in a reboot of Big Trouble In Little China. Writers Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz – who worked on X-Men: First Class for the studio – are on script duty for the film, which would see Johnson take over the role as Jack Burton, a trucker dragged into a centuries-old battle in San Francisco’s Chinatown.Although not perhaps the best of the Russell/Carpenter joints, Big Trouble still has a warm reputation among fans of cult ‘80s cinema. It also happens to be one of Dwayne Johnson’s favourite movies, so we can see why he might be interested in bringing his charisma to the role. »

London Has Fallen Poster Has Big Ben In Big Trouble

8 May 2015 1:55 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

London Has Fallen.s latest poster has been released and it proves that the film isn.t going to treat the English capital.s landmarks in the nicest fashion. In particular, Big Ben, which it looks as though will be trashed during the blockbuster. You can check out the stunning poster for London Has Fallen below.  Brutal, tragic stuff from Focus Features. I mean how are the people of London going to be able to tell the time now? Also, I.m going to put it out there, Big Ben In Big Trouble probably should have been the film.s title. London Has Fallen will re-team Gerard Butler.s sensational Secret Service agent Mike Banning with Aaron Eckhart.s President Benjamin Asher. However, rather than being stuck inside the White House, this time round they.ve travelled across the pond and have to stop the world.s most powerful men »
