Daisy Edgar-Jones joins 'Twister' reboot

Three years after its announcement, the highly anticipated Twister reboot has begun listing the actors. Reportedly, Normal People breakout star Daisy Edgar-Jones, who was recently cast in an On Swift Horses adaptation has become the first actor to join the cast of the sequel, which has been simply titled Twisters.

While earlier speculations had it that Helen Hunt, who starred in the original film, could return to reprise her role in the sequel, Edgar-Jones is the only actor officially confirmed for a role in the film. Hunt's part in the second film remains doubtful at the moment, however, the reboot might star familiar faces from the original. Plot details for the upcoming film remain under wraps, but it's been revealed that Edgar-Jones will play a former storm chaser who now works an office desk job following a near-death encounter with a disastrous tornado. She is, however, forced out of retirement to confront her worst fears when an occasion arises.

The original Twister film released in 1996 was a special effect spectacle and was a massive commercial success. Twisters hails from Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment and has on board a number of names behind the original to ensure that quality is at least maintained. Frank Marshall the man behind the hit Jurassic Park and Jurassic World franchises will produce under his Kennedy/Marshall Company. Lee Isaac Chung will direct the film. 

Chung will direct from a script by Mark L. Smith. Universal already has a release date set for the sequel and is projecting that the film will be ready to hit the theatres on July 19, 2024.
