What happened to the old saying: "If it's not broke, don't fix it"? Warner Bros. is working on another The Fugitive movie—they've brought on Christina Hodson to write the new script, according to SlashFilm.com.
In case you didn't know: The Fugitive was a popular TV series in the '60s about a doctor who sent to prison for the murder of his wife; he then escapes and go on the run to try to clear his name. The series was adapted into a very good movie with Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones in 1993
Ford played Dr. Richard Kimble, who the fugitive who flees from his train to prison and wants to track down the one-armed man who murdered his wife. Jones plays the by-the-book police officer set on finding Kimble.
Jones won an Oscar for his performance in '93—so why remake a good thing? There was already a reboot of the TV series in 2000 that starred Tim Daly, but it fizzled out after 23 episodes.
Granted, with Warner Bros. behind the new movie, it'll probably go big at the box office. According to Deadline, there's also talk of Ford and Jones coming back for the movie, but that's unconfirmed.
