The Forgotten creator Mark Friedman will write the pilot script, which centers on a successful woman who teams up with an adventurer on weekly missions. Her ultimate goal is to find her missing brother. The Romancing the Stone movie starred Kathleen Turner as the successful woman and Michael Douglas as the risk-taker.
20th Century Fox Television will produce the new show, with Shawn Levy and Marty Adelstein executive producing through their 21 Laps Entertainment banner.
We reported last week that 20th Century Fox is eyeing Gerard Butler and Katherine Heigl for a movie remake of Romancing The Stone. It isn't known if this movie project is still moving forward with a TV reboot also in the works.
