Sam Jackson to Star As Sho-Nuff in "The Last Dragon" Remake
When I saw this story something flashed in my head, The Last Dragon? I'm sure I remember that film, and Samuel L. Jackson's name was attached so I thought I'd read it. Then I saw the picture of the villain and I remembered that I really enjoyed the movie when it first came out, I just couldn't remember much about it.
So I tracked down an extended trailer for the film, a trailer that actually gives away the entire original film! Luckily I found another one that's much less revealing. However cheesy it looks I like the idea of a remake...but Samuel L. Jackson? Not so sure.
You see the baddie in the film, Sho'nuff, or the Shogun of Harlem, does a fair bit of martial arts, is pretty fit, and without any offence intended to the great Samuel L. Jackson, he's a bit older for the role I would think...and does he know Kung-Fu? Just plug him in to the Hollywood Matrix.
The film is a pretty standard tale in the martial arts series of films that came out of Hollywood, but I liked this one a little more than Karate Kid et al, because it has a much more advanced martial artist good guy, and contains a lot more Bruce Lee nods and references. It's more like the final chapter in the artist's journey, rather than the opening ones....
this was my movie back in the day
not sure how i feel bout remaking a classic of this caliber
^ thought the same thing. seems like it would be too cheesy in this day/time. sam jackson is perfect for this role though.
yeah I think they should leave this movie alone.
