This must be the Hell of Hollywood Remakes. How does the Rock look in a Mullet?

Yeah, this could be very, very bad.

Personally, I think we have a Jack Burton and Wang Chi right here

Chris Pratt as Burton

Steven Yeun as Wang

But if the Rock really wants to be in it, they should keep old Kurt Russel as Jack Burton, and the Rock can be some younger friend or something.... IE; SEQUEL.

I agree. If any actor currently alive and not named Kurt Russel could play Jack Burton, its Pratt.

I think the Rock could play a bad ass evil villian in the same style as Lo Pan. Certainly a different character, but with a similar personality and delivery. Now that would seem to fit the Rock perfectly. Overflowing with intensity to the point that there's a subtle hint of comedy.

Yeah, the Rock is not great casting for Jack. But I still think they could just make him Jack's son and make it a sequel like reboot and it might work. Chris Pratt would probably be a better Jack.

Hey, if they would cast Pratt and Yeun, why not make it a prequel and see them mixed up in another entirely different adventure? They can throw The Rock in the mix for good measure. And Christopher Walken. ;)

Christopher Walken makes everything better.

Walken as the Egg Shen type character... Makes perfect sense.
