Los Angeles: Hollywood action star Sylvester Stallone`s movie `Cliffhanger` is to be remade. `Fast & Furious` producer Neal Moritz has teamed up with scriptwriter Joe Gazzam for the project, according to reports.
The film will be a reimagining of the 1993 action thriller, which starred Stallone as a rescue ranger who finds himself involved in a failed heist.
`Cliffhanger` is the latest in a series of classic action films to receive remakes, following the likes of `Total Recall`, `RoboCop` and the upcoming `Point Break`.
Sony - who own Moritz`s Original Pictures - is also developing the mountain-climbing film `Everest`, starring Tom Hardy as Edward Mallory.
