NBC is developing a small-screen pilot based on the 1984 hit "Romancing the Stone."
"The Forgotten" creator Mark Friedman will write the project, which focuses on a romance writer who finds herself in the middle of a rolicking adventure in Colombia. Kathleen Turner and Michael Douglas starred in the film.
According to Deadline.com
, "Romancing the Stone" has only received a script commitment with a penalty, thus far. Subject to availability, "Real Steel" and "Night at the Museum" helmer Shawn Levy would direct a pilot. Levy would also produce through 21 Laps/Adelstein Prods with Marty Adelstein for 20th Century Fox TV.
"Romancing the Stone" was previously the subject of feature remake rumors, with Katherine Heigl and Gerard Butler mentioned as potential stars.
