Hollywood actor Wesley Snipes is eager to distance himself from the upcoming New Jack City remake, saying that "some things should be left alone."

"I'm not associated with it, you know. I'm have nothing to do with it at all," told Shadow & Act. 

"I think some things should be left alone. If it worked at the time under the circumstances and the story was built around things that were current. I don't particularly like the idea of recreating the drug culture. For what? Under the circumstances. I don't know. They actually talked to me about doing it and I told them no. If I had a dime for every time I've said no. It's a done deal, it's a wrap." 

Last month it was announced that a remake was underway.

No director is attached yet to the new New Jack City, which Bill Gerber (A Star Is Born) is producing along with the pic's original producer Doug McHenry per Deadline.
