1984's Romancing the Stone will be returning to the big screen in a remake, of course.
Instead of just letting films sit happily in people's homes as classics, Hollywood likes to pry them open, gut them, and then tack them up in theaters, banking on built-in audiences to fill seats.
The film is a romantic, action-packed adventure through the Colombian jungles as a mousy romance novelist finds herself romping with a hunky solider dude on a hunt for treasure.
The film was written by the late Diane Thomas, who wrote the screenplay while working as a waitress in Malibu, and then died in a car accident a year after the film's release.
Romancing turned out to be a career springboard for director Robert Zemeckis, and actors Kathleen Turner, Michael Douglas, and Danny DeVito.
Eagle Eye writer Daniel McDermott will be penning the new script for Fox.
No other players are yet attached to the project.
