Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment are planning on making a sequel to ”Twister.”
Twister starred Helen Hunt and the late Bill Paxton and became a hit earning over $494 million at the worldwide box office. It was directed by Speed director Jan De Bont, executive produced by Steven Spielberg and written by Jurassic Park author Michael Crichton.
“Twisters” will have viewers chasing the storm again with a screenplay written by “The Revenant” screenwriter Mark L. Smith, according to Universal. Frank Marshall is also set to produce the film, according to Universal, though the film does not yet have a director.
The movie followed Hunt’s character, Dr. Jo Harding, and a team of students preparing to test a new data-gathering device in a powerful tornado. It was lauded for its groundbreaking special effects and inspired a theme-park ride at Universal Studios.
Universal did not give any details on what the sequel would center around, though Deadline reported the sequel will focus on Hunt’s character’s daughter, who has the same storm-chasing bug as her parents.
Industry experts say filming is expected to begin in Spring 2023.
