Quote:
LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – Samuel L. Jackson is taking on another heavy role.

Having most recently played a dirty cop in "Lakeview Terrace," Jackson is set to star as a bad guy again in a remake of Motown Records founder Berry Gordy's 1985 cult classic "The Last Dragon."

Jackson will play Sho'Nuff, the Shogun of Harlem, a role played in the original by the late Julius Carry, whose spiel included asking ego-driven questions like "Am I the baddest mofo lowdown around this town?" Each time his gang of thugs answered, "Sho'Nuff!"

Columbia Pictures' updated plot will be along the same lines of the original, centering on young martial arts student Leroy Green in his quest through the streets of New York to achieve the highest level of martial arts accomplishment, known as the Last Dragon. Those who achieve the high ranking possess the Glow, making them the greatest fighter alive.

The original, which also starred one-namers Taimak and then-Prince protegee Vanity, was released in March 1985 by TriStar Pictures and received lukewarm reviews. Roger Ebert said it was a "great near-miss."

"Last Dragon" managed to do well at the box office, grossing nearly $26 million. It soon became a cult classic for scenes like Bruce Lee follower Green remaining so loyal to the martial arts star that he eats his popcorn in a movie theater with chopsticks.

"I'm a huge fan of the original and look forward to bringing Sho'Nuff into the 21st century," said Jackson, who returns to theaters soon alongside the late Bernie Mac in "Soul Men."

i dont know about this one, "The Last Dragon" was one of those medicore movies that hit legendary status cause of its cheesy-ness. This movie was perfect, its soundtrack, screenplay, characters made this memorable. It would just ruin the greatness of the original movie if they were to redue it, for some reason I dont see it being done any other way during any other era. We could have better effects, big name actors and musicians, Jon Woo doing choreographs, but it just would not be the same, there is only one Last Dragon. This sounds like an excuse to get more recorded footage of Samuel screaming on camera.

Busta did do a Sho'nuff skit in one of his videos. I think it was one of the singles for When Disaster Strikes.
