Without a doubt, Kurt Russell is Jack Burton, and no matter how charismatic and fun Dwayne Johnson is, fans would just be comparing him to Russells original performance. Reboots can be hit or miss–more times miss–and continuations are the better route to go. BothJumanji: Welcome to the JungleandOceans Eightlived in the worlds of the originals and both were great continuations to the originals without taking away from them. So heres to hoping this newBig Troublemovie can capture the spirit of the sequel.

The Big Trouble sequel is still in the early days of pre-production–even though the movie was first announced in 2015. There is no release date and only Dwayne Johnson is attached as a cast member. However Hiram Garcia, producer of the upcoming film and president of production at Seven Bucks Productions–which Johnson is a co-CEO of–opened up about the plans for the movie.
Everything that happened in the original exists and is standalone and I think theres only one person that could ever play Jack Burton, so Dwayne would never try and play that character. So we are just having a lot of fun. Were actually in a really great space with the story that weve cracked. But yeah, no remake. It is a continuation, and we are deep into development on that as well, and I think youll start hearing some things about that probably soon.
