Tornadoes haven't really stopped existing, so why hasn't there been another tornado movie since Twister first spun into cinemas in 1996? Producers are set to rectify the situation with a new Twister reboot.

According to Variety, Top Gun: Maverick director Joseph Kosinski is in talks to direct the film. Universal Pictures is currently on the hunt for a screenwriter.

It's unclear whether original star Helen Hunt will make an appearance in the new Twister (her co-star Bill Paxton died in 2017). Further, we don't know if they plan to use the original tornado or recast the role.

Stay tuned for more new on the Twister reboot as it becomes available.
