Samuel L. will be playing Shonuff the famed and legendary Karate hero, in a remake of The Last Dragon:

Having most recently played a dirty cop in “Lakeview Terrace,” Jackson is set to star as a bad guy again in Columbia Pictures’ remake of 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!” 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 protege Vanity.  “Last Dragon” did well at the boxoffice, 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,” Jackson said.

We can’t wait. Bruce Leroy and his little brother were pure comedy in that movie. We wonder who will play Bruce Leroy…probably Sisqo and his little brother, Richie, will be Bow Wow.
