Buckle up, kids, another remake is coming your way. For whatever reason, Fox has decided to remake the 1984 Robert Zemeckis directed ROMANCING THE STONE in which Michael Douglas starred as a soldier of fortune who helps romance novelist Kathleen Turner find her lost sister in Columbia. The movie made a star out of both leads as well as Danny DeVito and it's pretty damn fun in its own right so who knows why the hell Fox thinks it's ripe for remaking. They're looking to EAGLE EYE scribe Daniel McDermott to pen the adventures of some hot young mancake and his red hot hottie romantic interest. Anybody wanna throw out some candidates? Sam Worthington? Megan Fox? How bout we make Douglas' character female and re-team Rachael Taylor and Fox? Yeah? Anybody?
||McDermott is also working on a remake of SOYLENT GREEN.
