You know that thing which sometimes happens where one ‘outlet’ runs a rumor, and others pick it up as gospel? This is apparently the case with the recent hullabaloo about a possible “Twister” sequel. To be fair, this proposed return of the cinematic storm chasers has been spoken about for years. But, a recent ‘scoop’ claims “Prey” director Dan Trachtenberg was going to helm the project.
But by his own words, he’s not.
As far as we can tell FOR SURE, Universal and Amblin Pictures ARE actively developing “Twisters.” Additional sources indicate a desire for Helen Hunt, who played Dr. Jo Harding in the original 1996 film, to return. Her co-star Bill Paxton, who played Bill Harding, passed away suddenly in 2017. But so far, no set info about possible stars or storyline has been confirmed.
We’ll let you know what we hear about this and other news. You can catch “Twister” on Tubi and Hulu.
