High-octane director Doug Liman is revving up his engines for a remake of The Cannonball Run.
The director behind Edge of Tomorrow and Mr. and Mrs. Smith is in early talks to direct the modern take on the 1981 comedy hit that was helmed by master stuntman Hal Needham, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
The premise involves a group of rule-breaking misfits that team up to compete in a cross-country road race from Connecticut to California.
The initial movie was an all-star endeavor toplined by Burt Reynolds, Roger Moore, Farah Fawcett, Dean Martin, Dom DeLuise and a young Jackie Chan.
Thomas Lennon and Ben Garant wrote the script for the new incarnation.
