Big Trouble in Chinatown is one of the director’s most unique films John Carpenter and, for some time now, around Hollywood has been trying to make a reboot of the iconic 80s film.
Now, more than 5 years after the announcement of the arrival of the new film, he is the producer Hiram Garcia who, attempting to give life to the reboot with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, revealed that the project has encountered numerous obstacles along its path (and everything still seems to be very far from being ever realized).
Trouble ahead for Big Trouble in Chinatown reboot?
“It is still our ambition, but unfortunately there have been complications” Garcia explained in a recent interview, also revealing that the reboot will be more of a sequel than a real remake (a bit like it did with the Jumanji franchise). “We have a really funny idea of what we would like to do with the film, especially since our goal has never been to do Big Trouble in Chinatown again but simply continue its story. Similar to what we did with Jumanji, we would continue the story and make sure the original stands on its own as it means so much to us and fans around the world. So it goes without saying that we are still working to make it happen, but as with any great project the road is not easy but we are trying! We’ll find a way to continue the Big Trouble story in Chinatown. “
And while Garcia talks about the new project linked to John Carpenter’s film (who does not seem to be at all happy with the existence of a reboot), we know that the director is instead writing a new comic story set in the universe of Big Trouble in Chinatown. .
