The Hunt For The Fugitive Is Back On

Time to find that one-armed man again.

By Brandon Wolfe

1993’s The Fugitive, the big-screen adaptation of the ‘60s television series, stands as arguably the best TV-to-film adaptation of all time. Directed by Andrew Davis (who never went on to fully realize the promise he showed here), the film was a top-notch action-thriller, with a great turn by Harrison Ford as the hunted, wrongfully accused Dr. Richard Kimble and an Oscar-winning performance by Tommy Lee Jones as the dogged U.S. Marshal Sam Gerard. The film was one of the biggest hits of 1993 and was nominated for Best Picture. It also spawned a mediocre spin-off sequel about Gerard, 1998’s U.S. Marshals, and a hazily remembered TV revival in 2000.

And now, as is customary in our modern age, it’s time for The Fugitive to get back out there to chase down a couple of extra bucks as Warner Bros has commissioned a new installment of the venerable franchise. Original producers Arnold and Anne Kopelson are returning, and have hired Christina Hodson to write the script. There is no word on whether or not Ford or Jones would be involved, but that doesn’t seem likely. Ford has been game for any and all sequels lately, but it would be very difficult to plausibly get Kimble back on the lam, a dilemma that U.S. Marshals chose to sidestep entirely (and given how poorly received that film was, it’s unlikely Jones would want to make another return appearance, either). No, look for a new Kimble to hunt for another amputee in theaters soon, to vastly diminished results.

Chris Hemsworth and Oscar nominee, Michael Shannon, star in 12 STRONG.

Set in the harrowing days following 9/11, a U.S. Special Forces team, led by their new Captain, Mitch Nelson (Chris Hemsworth), is chosen to be the first U.S. troops sent into Afghanistan for an extremely dangerous mission. There, in the rugged mountains, they must convince Northern Alliance General Dostum (Navid Negahban) to join forces with them to fight their common adversary: the Taliban and their Al Qaeda allies. In addition to overcoming mutual distrust and a vast cultural divide, the Americans—accustomed to state-of-the-art warfare—must adopt the rudimentary tactics of the Afghani horse soldiers.
