Studio plans to remake ‘90s Stallone action flick 'Cliffhanger'

It seems cheesy ‘80s and ‘90s action movies aren't doomed to late night TV anymore. Cliffhanger, a 1993 action flick starring Sylvester Stallone as a mountain climbing rescuer, is in discussions to be "reimagined" according to Deadline. The report says that production company StudioCanal has a screenwriter on board to bring the movie back to life, though few details are available.

Cliffhanger is certainly a surprising film for a remake, though it did do well back in the early ‘90s. The story centers on Stallone, who gets tied up in a heist of a US Treasury plane carrying millions. Stallone is sent in to rescue the thieves when the plane goes down on the mountains — but he has no idea what he's in for. Stallone actually had a hand in the original screenplay, though it seems unlikely he'll be cast for this unexpected reboot. The original trailer for the film is below.
