OK, Hollywood is officially out of ideas.
The latest remake plot involves bringing 1984 action-adventure movie “Romancing the Stone” to the small screen.
NBC has purchased a TV series adaptation of the Robert Zemeckis movie, reports Deadline.com.
In the original film, Kathleen Turner plays a romance writer who finds adventure with an American bird exporter (Michael Douglas). The character is on a quest to pay the ransom on her kidnapped sister in South America. Exciting.
NBC’s new version will reportedly have some modern tweaks. The female lead will be a “successful but unfulfilled” woman who tackles missions with a handsome adventurer each weekly episode … with an overarching search for her missing brother.
What do you think of the remake? Sound off below!
