Katherine Heigl and Gerard Butler Eyed for ‘Romancing the Stone’ Reboot

http://movieweb.com/movie/romancing-the-stone/ Fox is looking to reboot the 1984 action flick Romancing the Stone with Katherine Heigl and Gerard Butler in the lead roles. Heigl would play Joan Wilder, originally played by Kathleen Turner, and Butler would play Jack Colton, originally played by Michael Douglas.

In the original Romancing the Stone, Joan Wilder, a mousy romance novelist, receives a treasure map in the mail from her recently murdered brother-in-law. Meanwhile, her sister Elaine is kidnapped in Colombia and the two criminals responsible demand that she travel to Colombia to exchange the map for her sister. Joan does, and quickly becomes lost in the jungle after being waylayed by Zolo, a vicious and corrupt Colombian cop who will stop at nothing to obtain the map. There, she meets an irreverent soldier-of-fortune named Jack Colton who agrees to bring her back to civilization. Together, they embark upon an adventure that could be straight out of Joan's novels.
