Fox has announced that it will bring the 1984 romantic adventure-comedy Romancing The Stone, which launched the careers of Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner, to the big screen again.
The film follows a romance novelist who travels to Colombia to find her missing sister but winds up meeting an American soldier of fortune. The two then join forces and traipse across South America. No producers have been selected, but writer Daniel McDermott, a former DreamWorks television executive turned screenwriter, has been hired to write the redo. It has not been determined how much of the plot will change to reflect contemporary times. McDermott's most recent screenwriting effort was Eagle Eye. There has been no confirmation or indication that Douglas and/or Turner will make cameos in the film.
