Mary Anne Butler
Mary Anne Butler (Mab) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), Bleeding Cool (where she was News Editor), and now NerdBot as News Editor. Over the past 10 years, she’s built a reputation at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. Though she be but little, she is fierce.

We’re not really sure how to feel about this particular remake/reboot rumor, because why in the WORLD would you revisit 90’s action film “Twister?!” Seriously. Why.

According to Variety, that’s exactly what Universal Pictures is doing, with “Top Gun: Maverick,” “TRON: Legacy” director Joseph Kosinski being eyed to storm chase.

Our faces exactly in this moment.

The original 1996 “Twister” film of course starred Helen Hunt and Bill Paxton [RIP], as well as an all-star supporting cast of Jami Gertz, Carey Elwes, Lois Smith, Alan Ruck, and the late great Phillip Seymour Hoffman. Jan de Bont directed from a script by Anne-Marie Martin and Michael Crichton.

There’s only one question we’d ask- who would you cast to be The Extreme for a new generation of tornado enthusiasts?

Please don’t say Gerard Butler– he had his chance with “Geostorm.”

We’ll let you know what else we hear about this particular remake reboot rumor.
