‘Normal People’ star Daisy Edgar-Jones has entered into talks to star in Universal’s next chapter of the tornado disaster movie ‘Twister.’

Edgar-Jones will star in the project as a former storm chaser who, after surviving a disastrous tornado encounter, now works a desk job. That is until she is forced to go out into the breach once more.

The new story is not a sequel, nor is it expected to bring back old characters. The studio is describing it as a “new chapter.”

‘Minari’ helmer Lee Isaac Chung will take the director’s chair on a script by Mark L. Smith (The Revenant).

Frank Marshall is producing via his banner, Kennedy/Marshall Company. Marshall’s wife, current Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, was a lead producer on the original.

The original 1996 movie starred Helen Hunt and Bill Paxton as romantically estranged storm chasers facing rival storm chasers, a host of tornadoes, and their feelings for each other.

Jan de Bont directed the original, which grossed almost $500 million worldwide and featured ear-vibrating, floor-shaking THX sound design. Steven Spielberg was an exec producer, and author Michael Crichton wrote the screenplay.
