Big Trouble in Little China: Old Man Jack is co-written by director John Carpenter and Anthony Burch (Borderlands 2). Jorge Corona draws the final ride on the Pork-Chop Express, which finds 60-year-old Jack Burton retired to a tiny corner of Florida while hell literally reigns on Earth. The first issue is covered by Stephane Roux, with variants by Sam Bosma, Michael Adams with Marco D’Alfonso, Will Robson, and Paul Pope. The first issue is due in September.
Aside from being a cult classic film, Big Trouble has inspired a number of related projects. A hotly anticipated board game based on the property is due in Q4 (see “Details Emerge for 'Big Trouble in Little China: The Game'”). BOOM! also recently released a six-issue Big Trouble in Little China / Escape From New York crossover (see “BOOM! Announces John Carpenter Crossover, WWE Comics, & Movie Deal”).
In June 2015, a remake of Big Trouble in Little China starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was announced (see “Dwayne Johnson in 'Big Trouble In Little China'”), but there appears to have been little movement on the project.
