The 1993 Sylvester Stallone thriller is getting a modern overhaul.

Cliffhanger—a.k.a. Die Hard on a Mountain, a.k.a. one of the best guilty pleasure movies of all time—is getting a reboot.

Deadline Hollywood reports that StudioCanal has hired Joe Gazzam to pen the screenplay for the revamped version of the 1993 thriller, which starred Sylvester Stallone as a mountain guide who faces off against a group of wily terrorists led by John Lithgow. The film has lived on as a minor cult classic amongst action movie junkies.

The reboot does not have a U.S. distribution deal yet, nor does it have a director or any stars attached. But those are mere formalities, right? We can only hope that Sly is busy clearing his schedule at this very second.
