The classic 1984 movie ROMANCING THE STONE, which helped launch the Hollywood career of Michael Douglas, is set to be remade.
The action-adventure movie was a box office smash - turning Douglas, Danny DeVito and Kathleen Turner into mega film stars and giving director Robert Zemeckis his first big hit.
And now, according to Hollywood Reporter, Fox chiefs have decided the time is right to produce an updated version, signing up Eagle Eye co-writer Daniel MCDermott to pen the script.
The original film told the story of a romance novelist who travels to Colombia to find her missing sister but ends up meeting an American soldier of fortune, and the two embark on a cross-country adventure.
