Daisy Edgar-Jones and Glen Powell Star in the Sequel


Chung and Smith have followed the template of the first film and assembled a first-rate ensemble cast. Who doesn’t want to watch the charming likes of Daisy Edgar-Jones, Glen Powell, Anthony Ramos, Maura Tierney, Sasha Lane, Kiernan Shipka and James Gunn’s Superman/Clark Kent David Corenswet contend with a whole mess of property shredding tornados?

According to Smith, the film will also deal with climate change, and how the phenomenon has caused storms to become more intense throughout the 21st century. But if you’re hoping “Twisters” will be a direct sequel to the first film, that, alas, is not in the cards. As Smith told Collider last December:

“[Chung] did his own thing to the script a little bit because that’s what they do, so I don’t know about some of the changes exactly. So, I don’t know the details, but it’s a separate story. It’s not a continuation of the original. But it’s just a real wild ride with some good, fun characters.”

Without Paxton and Hoffman around to reprise their roles, I’m totally fine with Chung going in his own direction with the material. We’ll find out if he can match the visual and aural fury of De Bont’s film when “Twisters” arrives on July 19, 2024.
