The sequel to the 1996 blockbuster, Twister, is set to begin filming soon. According to an article published recently in Deadline, production on Twisters will start in spring 2023:

Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment are meeting with directors hoping for a spring start on Twisters, a big-scale sequel to the 1996 storm-chasing blockbuster. Universal and Warner Bros are co-financing, with Universal taking the creative lead on the picture. Frank Marshall is producing.


They haven’t locked in a new director yet, but among the helmers under consideration are the Oscar-winning Free Solo team of Jimmy Chin & Elizabeth Chai Vaserhelyi; Dan Trachtenberg. who most recently directed the terrific Predator reinvention Prey and before that 10 Cloverfield Lane; and Travis Knight, the Laika chief whose recent animated films were Missing Link and Kubo and the Two Strings. There might be one or two others in the mix. Jan De Bont directed the original.

They are hoping to bring back Helen Hunt as lead character, Jo Harding. Co-stars Bill Paxton and Philip Seymour Hoffman are no longer with us, which makes an effective sequel more challenging, but not impossible. Given the reports that Steven Spielberg is excited about the script, its prospects are definitely looking good!
