Warner Bros. is on the hunt for another installment of “The Fugitive.”
Deadline reports the studio has tapped Christina Hodson (“Shut In”) to write the screenplay, but there’s no indication whether original stars Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones will be returning. It’s not even clear from the report whether this will be a sequel or a remake/reboot.
Based on the 1960s television drama of the same name, the 1993 action film starred Ford as Dr. Richard Kimble, who escapes custody after being wrongly accused of his wife’s murder and sets out to prove his innocence by bringing the real killer to justice. Jones played Deputy U.S. Marshal Samuel Gerard, a role he reprised in the 1998 sequel “U.S. Marshals.”
Directed by Andrew Davis, “The Fugitive” grossed nearly $369 million worldwide, and earned seven Academy Award nominations, with Jones winning for Best Supporting actor. “U.S. Marshals” brought in just north of $100 million.
