Much like the Ghostbusters and the Ocean’s 11 franchises, we are officially getting a Cliffhanger redo, only with a gender twist, as this Sylvester Stallone action classic will get remade with a mostly female cast. None of the new characters or actors have been announced yet but we do have official word that Aquaman and Conan the Barbarian himself Jason Momoa will show up in some capacity.
Rocket Science announced today they have acquired the rights to Cliffhanger, which they will produce alongside Neal Moritz’s Original Film (the billion-dollar The Fast and the Furious franchise). The female-led reboot of the 1993 classic will be directed by Ana Lily Amirpour, the cinematic mastermind behind the visionary films A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night and The Bad Batch and based on a script by Sascha Penn (Creed II, upcoming Blacklist script C1:34).
Casting is currently underway for a female lead to headline an ensemble cast, with Jason Momoa (Aquaman, Game of Thrones) in talks for a cameo.
