Fox’s Possible (Sigh) ‘Romancing The Stone’ Remake Would Star (Sigh) Gerard Butler And Katherine Heigl

Don't pretend that we don't all know where Gerard's right hand is. She loves it.  

Word in Tinseltown is that Fox has spun the Movie-matic movie-generating wheel and it came up “remake,” “Romancing the Stone,” and “Heigl/Butler.” So, our fate awaits.

For those who don’t remember or are too young and busy to visit ephemeral mid-80′s action romances, Romancing the Stone, which followed a romance novelist (Katleen Turner in the original) and a mercenary (Michael Douglas in the original) as they scramble around the jungle in familia Indiana Jones fashion until they fall in love.

The only thing to like about this possible remake is that the original featured Danny DeVito, who could very easily step right back into the same role, considering he doesn’t appear to have aged a day since 1984.

Beyond that, I don’t think we’ll get a lot of support for an Ugly Truth reunion on this website, so let’s put a provisional approval on this in the hopes that Katherine Heigl (improbably) gets topless, or Gerard Butler chops her head off in 300 fashion.
