New Jack City Reboot in the Works


Last week it was reported that Insecure's Issa Rae was producing a re-imagination of the 90s hood classic, 'Set It Off [click here if you missed that].'

Now New Jack City is next...

According to reports Warner Bros. Studios is rebooting the 1991 gangster movie 'New Jack City.'

Snowfall's Malcom M. Mays has been tapped to write the script.

The original starred Wesley Snipes as drug kingpin Nino Brown, Ice-T, Chris Rock, Allen Payne and Mario Van Peebles.

This could be promising with a respectable budget and better writers. The first one was lacking.

1. Nino was "on the run" but moments later we see him chilling in his apartment.

2. G Money was shot and killed by a gun that never went off.....(rewatch the scene)

3. The security footage capturing Pookie (Chris Rock) moments before his murder in a CRACKHOUSE is never seen or mentioned again.....Hello evidence?

Nooooo, let classics be classics. Not every movie needs to be remade.

Absolutely not. Leave classics alone. Hollywood has no imagination.

Who they think is gonna want to see this? The old heads--of which I am one--will not want to see it redone, it's a hood classic that should be left alone. The young folks have little reference for it and won't be interested.

It's just a no. Leave originals alone. Ho-wood needs some new ideas.

How you gone reboot some shit when the main character Welsey dead. Christopher Williams a crack head. New Jack Shitty should be the name. Nobody wants to see a remake of clasic shit!

PLEASE...PLEASE...PLEASE...Don't do this!

This movie is a CLASSIC and Wesley Snipes was SUPERIOR!

I'm an older Cat and this is my all-time second favorite movie (Oliver Stone's "PLATOON" is my #1).

Don't do it. . .I am pleading!

Leave this film back in the 90's where they found it.

People always want to remake a good movie. Anyone can do that because someone has already showed then the way to do it.

They should go find a bad movie and remake it into a good one.

Hollywood really has run out of ideas. What a shame.

If what they did with Super Fly is an indication , they should really just leave this shit alone.
