The original Jack Burton, Kurt Russell recently talked to Collider, and in the interview the subject of the upcoming remake of the cult classic hit Big Trouble In Little China came up. Kurt gave his thoughts on the remake:
“Hey, you know, nothing sacred, why not? Go get it, good luck.
I always think it’s interesting what’s gonna be done. Dwayne Johnson I don’t know what his take on it is gonna be, I don’t know what they’re gonna do. I always look at those movies when I see a remake and it’s like, ‘okay… there’s gotta be a reason’
I don’t know what their reasons are for remaking the movie but I hope that they have the right reasons and I hope that they do it well and good luck, what can I say? I don’t know, I don’t have thoughts other than that. Hang in there, good luck, go get em”
Russell also talked about the fact that he and John Carpenter made a remake together when they made the movie, John Carpenter’s The Thing, “It took a long time for that movie to kind of gain it’s appreciation but through the years it’s been nice to watch that happen with that movie, it’s now considered one of the great horror movies ever made and I’m very proud to have been a part of that.”
