Swirl your mind back to last October, when word first broke that the long-gestating sequel to 1996's storm-chasing thriller Twister was actually moving ahead. Titled Twisters, it has just picked up its first lead actor, with Daisy Edgar-Jones aboard to star.

Minari's Lee Isaac Chung is in the director's chair for the new film, which if it stays true to what was reported last year, will focus on the daughter of Helen Hunt's Jo Harding and Bill Paxton's Bill Harding from the original. The hope is for Hunt (Paxton, of course, is sadly no longer with us) to make an appearance.

The casting of Edgar-Jones makes us think it'll come to pass, with The Revenant's Mark L. Smith on script duty. Steven Spielberg has been pushing this one forward, with a rare co-producing deal between Universal and Warner Bros.

All being well, it should be in cinemas around July 2024.
