Twister’ remake is coming soon at Universal Pictures.

A remake of the hit 1996 blockbuster tornado movie “Twister” is coming soon. According to reports, the upcoming remake will be directed by “Top Gun: Maverick” director Joseph Kosinski. Frank Marshall is producing the film and the studios are currently hiring a screenwriter to work on the project.

The original “Twister” movie starred Bill Paxton and Helen Hunt as two storm chasers in the midwest whose relationship is on shaky ground but work together to create a weather alert system. However, the only way they can do it is by chasing deadly tornados. Plot details for the next movie were not released.

The 1996 movie made $494 million worldwide at the box office and nominated for two Oscars including Best Visual Effects.
