‘Twister’ Successor Set to Premiere in 2024

A whirlwind sequel is on the horizon.

The blockbuster Twister from 1996 enjoyed massive success despite its straightforward plot following scientists as they chase a massive tornado across the United States. Garnering a staggering $500 million at the box office, Twister is often humorously credited for kickstarting the wave of disaster films that ruled cinemas in the late 90s. Nearly three decades later, it appears that another tempest is gathering.

}

});

As reported by Variety, Universal is currently working on a contemporary sequel to Twister, anticipated to hit theaters in the summer of 2024. The upcoming film is titled “Twisters,” suggesting that multiple colossal tornadoes will be the focal point this time. Lee Isaac Chung is set to direct, with Mark L. Smith penning the script.

It remains uncertain whether the original film’s stars, such as Helen Hunt or Bill Paxton, will reprise their roles in Twisters. Universal describes the new movie as “a new installment inspired by the 1996 flick,” but whether the same characters will be featured is still unclear.

If the film adheres to its slated summer 2024 premiere, it will coincide with other major film debuts like Transformers: A New Generation and Marvel’s Thunderbolts.
