Look what the wind blew in.

There’s been no news about the sequel to the 1996 epic disaster film Twister–titled, appropriately enough, Twisters–since late last year when director Lee Isaac Chung was named, but now the feature has landed its lead.

Daisy Edgar-Jones (Normal People) has signed on to star in the Amblin Entertainment/Universal Pictures flick scheduled for a theatrical release July 19, 2024, according to a report on Deadline.

The movie–expected to start filming sometime this spring–is helmed by the Oscar-nominated Chung from a screenplay by Mark L. Smith. Frank Marshall is producing the film.

The original Twister–directed by Jan de Bont from a screenplay by Michael Crichton and Anne-Marie Martin–stars Helen Hunt, Bill Paxton, Jami Gertz, Cary Elwes and Philip Seymour Hoffman as a group of amateur storm chasers trying to deploy a tornado research device during a severe Oklahoma storm.

The box office smash–winding up as the second-highest grossing film of 1996–earned nearly $500 million worldwide on a $90-million budget.
