The 1996 summer blockbuster Twister helped usher in a new era of disaster entertainment and Universal wants to bring back those thrills for a new generation.


According to multiple sources, Universal Pictures is looking to reboot the 1996 Jan de Bont action thriller. The original film starred Bill Paxton and Helen Hunt as soon to be divorced storm chasers who team up to test a new weather control system that has to be placed in the path of a tornado. There are currently no details about the plot of the reboot, but Universal is currently in talks with director Joseph Kosinski to direct.


Kosinski is the director of TRON: Legacy, Oblivion and Only the Brave. His next film reunites him with his Oblivion lead Tom Cruise for the upcoming Top Gun: Maverick.
