Fox is swinging into development a remake of the 1984 adventure movie. The original movie helped launch Robert Zemeckis as a director, turned Michael Douglas and Danny DeVito into film stars and established Kathleen Turner as a romantic lead. Written by Diane Thomas, "Romancing" told the story of a repressed romance novelist who travels to Colombia to find her missing sister only to meet up with an American soldier of fortune. The two embark on a cross-country adventure involving a map, a jewel and a private police force.
