Sho’Nuff, Samuel L. Jackson Will Take On The Last Dragon

Sho’Nuff, Samuel L. Jackson Will Take On <i>The Last Dragon</i> More often than not, the news of an '80s movie remake would have me crying out "Why? Just... why?!" in a plaintive wail. But yesterday came news of a remake of The Last Dragon that has me clapping my hands like a kid who's just gotten a plastic pumpkin full of sweet, sweet treats. This is entirely because Samuel L. Jackson has been cast as the egocentric, larger-than-life, so-bad-he's-good villain known as Sho'Nuff. Originally played by the late Julius Carry, the self-professed "Shogun of Harlem" will once again face off against plucky young martial arts hero Leroy Green, but the plot will be updated for modern sensibilities. Which, sadly, probably means a dearth of those distinctly '80s tunes and no Vanity co-starring as the girlfriend.
