Female Led CLIFFHANGER Reboot In Development With Ana Lily Amirpour

The good folk over at Deadline are hearing word that Ana Lily Amirpour (‘A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night’) has been tapped to take the director’s chair for a reboot of hit action-thriller ‘Cliffhanger.’

Directed by Renny Harlin, the original starred Sylvester Stallone as haunted mountain rescuer who is pitted against a group of criminals who have lost their $100M stash during a plane crash in the Rocky Mountains. John Lithgow, Michael Rooker and Janine Turner also starred.

According to Deadline, the new film will have a female lead, and ‘Aquaman’ and ‘Game of Thrones’ star Jason Momoa is talks for a key cameo.

‘Fast and Furious’ producer Neal Moritz is behind the remake, which has long been a passion project of his. Moritz and his Original Film banner will produce with Thorsten Schumacher and partner Lars Sylvest for London-based Rocket Science
