According to Vanity, Joseph Kosiniski is in talks with Universal and Frank Marshall who is producing the venture. Although if they change the story completely is it really a Twister reboot, or just a nee disaster movie? Nothing has been confirmed about the movie yet as they’re still looking for a writer.
Personally I think they either need to make a remake of an absolutely iconic movie, or they need to do a reboot which either picks up where the first one ends or takes us back to the beginning of Bill (Bill Paxton) and Jo’s (Helent Hunt) careers as storm chasers.
Let’s see where they go with it, especially as Kosinski’s repertoire is so far still pretty small, but having been director on Tron: Legacy at least we know that he’s not afraid to handle a much loved classic.
