The 1996 Jan de Bont-directed film will be getting a refreshed version from Universal, THR reported on Wednesday (June 24).

The original film starred Bill Paxton and Helen Hunt. Top Gun: Maverick director Joseph Kosinski is currently in talks to direct.

The new film will be produced by Frank Marshall, who is married to Kathleen Kennedy, one of the original producers. The search for writers is now “underway.”

The original movie, released by Warner Bros., earned nearly $500 million globally, and was especially renowned for its innovative sound design.
