There are few people busier than Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Countless movies, an HBO series, wrestling star, alarm clock entrepreneur, fitness buff, award show host there just doesn’t seem to be enough minutes in the day for all of The Rock’s Hollywood endeavors. But fans who believed that Johnson’s hectic schedule would hinder the previously reported Big Trouble in Little China remake can rest easy.

During a recent interview with the movie website Fandango, the actor confirmed that the Big Trouble in Little China is still in the works.

“That’s happening, man!” Johnson told Fandango. “That’s happening, that’s happening. And again, that’s one of those things where you gotta take really good care of it.“

Directed by John Carpenter, the original film told the story of an All-American trucker who gets dragged into a centuries-old mystical battle in Chinatown. Adding to the intrigue of the remake is that Johnson, who back in June of 2015 revealed to Entertainment Weekly that he’s a fan of the original film and “loved” the main character, would be playing the role originated by his Fast & Furious co-star Kurt Russell.

The movie doesn’t have a premiere date yet, but in the meantime you can catch The Rock on his hit HBO series Ballers when it returns on July 17. Or with Kevin Hart in next month’s Central Intelligence. Or as Hobbs in the aforementioned Fast 8. Or on the WWE Network. Or in Baywatch, San Andreas 2, Rampage, and the Jumanji remake. Did we give you enough options?
