Helen Hunt will return as the mother of her storm-chasing daughter
The original Twister is one of the most popular disaster movies of all time. The film’s success helped ignite the epic disaster movie genre. And now it’s getting a sequel. But can it live up to its own hype?
The original film followed storm chasers in Oklahoma. Helen Hunt and Bill Paxton played the leads. However, the film received mixed reviews. The film grossed $494 million worldwide. The movie also had the distinction of being the first Hollywood movie to be released on DVD.
Universal Pictures is pursuing the idea of bringing Hunt back to the big screen. The studio is reportedly trying to get Hunt to re-join the studio and play the mother of the storm-chasing daughter in the sequel.
There are several potential directors for the project. One of them is Travis Knight. The other is Joseph Kosinski.
Helen Hunt hoped to work on the script. She even pitched a sequel to the studio, but the studio rejected her pitch.
Lee Isaac Chung’s involvement has not been officially confirmed
As the sequel to the 1996 disaster film “Twister” is in development, director Lee Isaac Chung is in talks to take the helm. He has a personal connection to the project and is reportedly the front-runner for the job.
The film originally focused on two storm chasers in Oklahoma, Bill Paxton and Helen Hunt, who must work together to create a weather alert system. It was a hit movie when it debuted in 1996, grossing nearly $500 million at the global box office. However, it wasn’t a critical hit. It’s unclear what direction the sequel will head, but it’s likely to focus on dangerous tornadoes.
It’s not yet clear who will star in the remake. A few of the original cast members are in the mix. Todd Field, Philip Seyour Hoffman, and Alan Ruck are all on the roster.
The film is being financed and produced by Universal Pictures, Warner Bros. Pictures, and Amblin Entertainment. It’s been in development since 2020, and there’s no release date yet. The script is being written by The Revenant’s Mark L. Smith, and production is being overseen by Universal’s executive vice president of production Sara Scott.
