He started out in the ring and now he's one of the biggest action stars on the planet. Now we find out he's in talks to star in the 'Big Trouble In Little China' remake.

The Wrap reports Duane "The Rock" Johnson will star and produce the film if an agreement can be made with the studio. John Carpenter directed the original back in 1986 and starred Kurt Russell and Kim Cattrall. It was a bomb at the box office but went on to become a cult classic.

The movie tells the story of a trucker Jack Burton, who ends up battling Lo Pan in the San Francisco's Chinatown.
