A movie remake of the tornado film “Twister” is in development at Universal Pictures, and “Top Gun: Maverick” director Joseph Kosinski is in negotiations to direct the remake of the 1996 blockbuster, an individual with knowledge of the project told TheWrap.
Frank Marshall is producing the film, and the studio is currently hunting for a screenwriter
Jan De Bont directed the 1996 film that $494 million worldwide at the box office and was nominated for two Oscars, including for Best Visual Effects for its ahead of its time special effect work.
Sara Scott, the SVP of production at Universal, will oversee the remake for the studio
Kosinski is something of an effects wizard himself, getting his start with the 2010 sequel “TRON: Legacy” and following that up with the Tom Cruise sci-fi “Oblivion.” His film “Top Gun: Maverick” expects to hit theaters this Christmas 2020.
