He may have slipped into direct to Video/streaming land over the many years, but there was a time when Steven Seagal was a massive action movie star and his “Die Hard” wannabe Under Siege was not only a box office smash, but also a pretty damn decent film

It’s been confirmed tonight that HBO Max are planning on a reboot with Timo Tjahjanto (The Night Comes for Us) directing and Umair Aleem (Kate) set to pen the script.

The 1992 film which saw Seagel’s Casey Ryback former Navy Seal, now a cook, fight off a bunch of terrorists led by Tommy Lee Jones on a boat spawned a not so very good sequel, but the original is still a film favourite among action fans all these years later.

No news if Seagel himself will reprise the lead role.
