Glen Powell in Talks to Star in ‘Twister’ Sequel Opposite Daisy Edgar-Jones

Glen Powell is in talks to star opposite Daisy Edgar-Jones in Universal and Amblin Entertainment’s “Twisters,” a sequel to 1996’s “Twister.” “Minari” helmer Lee Isaac Chung is directing the film from a script by “The Revenant” writer Mark L. Smith. “Twisters” is set to release on July 19, 2024. Starring Helen Hunt, Bill Paxton, Carey Elwes and Philip Seymour Hoffman, 1996’s “Twister” made nearly $500 million at the box office and received Oscar nominations in the visual effects and sound categories. It was directed by Jan De Bont (“Speed”) from a screenplay by Michael Crichton, with Steven Spielberg executive producing. Described as a “new chapter” of the 1996 movie, plot details for “Twisters” remain under wraps. The original “Twister” followed a team of storm-chasers as they hunt down the most powerful tornado in decades.

Powell is coming off a big 2022 starting with Top Gun: Maverick. He also recently co-starred with Jonathan Majors and executive produced the historical war epic Devotion for Sony. Powell next will star in the upcoming action-comedy Hitman from Oscar-nominated director Richard Linklater, which Powell also co-produced and co-wrote with Linklater. Additionally, he will team with Chris Morgan in the sci-fi action thriller Deputy X for Universal and has signed on to star with Nick Jonas in the buddy comedy Foreign Relations.
