NBC Will Develop Romancing the Stone for TV


Many have tried to remake the 1984 adventure comedy Romancing the Stone for the big screen, but it looks like NBC might get to it first. The Hollywood Reporter reports that the network has signed on to adapt the story of a romance novelist (originally played by Kathleen Turner) who searches for her missing sister in South America, where she joins up with a handsome rogue (Michael Douglas). While the first film was helmed by Robert Zemeckis, this one would be directed by Shawn Levy (Real Steel) should it go to series, exponentially increasing the odds that the main characters will be played by fighting, sexy robots.
