Samuel L is Sho'nuff

10.30.2008

Samuel L. Jackson, widely considered by most scholars to be 'The baddest mofo in Hollywood", is about to get a little bit badder. He is set to star as Sho'nuff, the bad, martial arts ghetto wizard in a remake of Berry Gordy's 1985 cult classic THE LAST DRAGON.

The plot will be updated for today's modern fanboy and lovers of all things cult, but will still focus on young martial arts student Leroy Green and his quest to achieve the highest level of martial arts accomplishment, known as the Last Dragon. If you achieve The Last Dragon, you possess the Glow, and become the greatest fighter alive. Just like in real life.

Just in case you were unsure if the movies' bad factor isn't enough to suit Sam Jackson, I will assure you with the following facts. First, Wu Tang's RZA is producing. Second, in the original Sam's character Sho'nuff had lines such as this: "Am I the baddest mofo lowdown around this town?" And each time his gang of thugs answered, "Sho 'nuff!"

Now that's just down right bad.

What?!

Holy Sh*t! I'm late on this scoop and even later on the scoop that there's a remake being made of "The Last Dragon"! That movie is a motown classic and I don't know if a remake can do the original, justice.

as the red indicates.....this is a bad idea! plain and simple. the last dragon is a classic. no need for a remake, reboot, reshoot, or re- anything. just a bad idea.

Solo the Hut!

Solo The Hut, you're just plain wrong buy saying that SLJ can't act. I admit he hasn't done much real acting in about 6-10 years, but there was a time when he was hungry and he got roles that forced him to show his chops. Check the list. You know I'm right.
"Menace to Society"
"A Time to Kill"
"Jungle Fever"
"Pulp Fiction"
"187"
"Jackie Brown"

Wrong... Just Wrong.

How dare they remake a classic. I am sick of all these remakes. The Last Dragon is art, it cannot be duplicated!!!! (Flashbacks ensue) "There is one place you have not looked, and it is there you will find the... Master." ARGGHGH Damn you Hollywood!!!

I'll wait for the trailer. Sam Jackson is coming off the block as of late, but i like the fact the RZA is producing it. I saw him live, sick! Check em out if you get a chance.

Blasphemy!!!

I can watch the original over and over. Part of what made it great was the 80's music, "You are the Last Dragon..." You can't remake the last dragon. It's the last one. No more dragons. If the theme song is missing, don't even bother.

No More Remakes!!

Nothing is original anymore!

I heard that they are also remaking "Above the Law" and the sad part is that it will star Steven Seagal once again!

Berry Gordy made a movie!?!

And I'm sure I could name a bunch of guys in Hollywood who are "badder" than Jackson, thing is most of 'em are either in prison, rehab, or their careers went down the toilet thanks to their real-life bad-ass personas.

Having said that, Jackson is among the coolest actors around.

LAME!!!!

I have a idea,lets remake the whole decade of the '80's.This decade sucks so let's redo everything. I like Sammy L. but Julius Carry(original Sho Nuff)just died a few months ago and this is no way to pay tribute to him and his greastest performance. Kiss my Converse!

Lesser of Two Evils

At least this time they are only defacing the de-faceable and not making a prequel to Jaws or Son of Dirty Harry or Back to the Future 4: Goin' Medieval on Your Ass. Those are reasons to complain...and overthrow the government.

C'mon now

I cannot WAIT to see what's redone with this film! I've loved it since it's debut. It's a comedy that deserves to be made current. I've DEFINITELY sat thru worse remakes.

Why Remake?

Hollywood sucks. How could you remake a classic cult film like The Last Dragon? Julius Carry was great as Sho'nuff and the movie itself was great. Samuel L. Jackson is annoying and will be terrible. Hey while they're are at it, why dont they Nick Cannon to play Leroy Green. There is no freaking reason this movie should be remade.
