Samuel L is Sho’nuff

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.
