Hey, remember that Sylvester Stallone mountaineering action movie you kinda liked when you were eleven? They're totally remaking that.

Screenwriter Joe Gazzam has been hired to pen the script for “Cliffhanger,” a “reimagining” of the 1993 Sylvester Stallone film about a haunted mountain climber who gets caught up in a deadly heist, according to Deadline. Stallone doesn't appear to be involved in the new version, which was first announced back in 2009 before stalling out for a time. Producer Neal H. Moritz (“Fast & Furious”) is on board to produce for StudioCanal.

Directed by Renny Harlin and co-starring Janine Turner, John Lithgow and Michael Rooker, “Cliffhanger” brought in more than $250 million worldwide. The film was nominated for three technical Oscars including Best Visual Effects, Best Sound and Best Sound Effects Editing.
