The 1992 hit movie Under Siege starring Steven Seagal is being rebooted by Warner Bros. with Timo Tjahjanto set to direct.

While there’s no word at this time of original star Segal returning, either in front or behind the camera, Deadline reports that movement has begun on a reboot of the action movie.

Tjahjanto is currently working on Last Train Yo New York, an American remake of the Korean zombie flick Train To Busan.

The original Under Siege was released in 1992, directed by Andrew Davis and written by J. F. Lawton. It stars Seagal as Casey Ryback, a former Navy SEAL who springs into action to stop a group of mercenaries (led by Tommy Lee Jones’ William Strannix) who seize control of the battleship USS Missouri.

Gary Busey, Erika Eleniak, and Colm Meaney also star. The movie was a tremendous hit at the box office and was even up for multiple Oscars, and has become known as one of Seagal’s best movies.

In 1995, Seagal returned as Ryback in the sequel Under Siege 2: Dark Territory, this time moving the action from a battleship to a moving train traveling through the Rocky Mountains.

Geoff Murphy directed the sequel which was written by Richard Hatem and Matt Reeves. The movie also starred Katherine Heigl, Morris Chestnut, Peter Greene, Nick Mancuso, and Kurtwood Smith. It did not reach the same levels of success as the original.

Seagal had announced his plans to make Under Siege 3 in 2016. The actor wrote in a tweet at the time that Woodie Mister was writing the script for the project, declaring that:

“It’s time.”

For whatever reason, this sequel seems to have since died out in development hell with no significant updates on its progress since then.

Maybe a final adventure for Casey Ryback just isn’t meant to be.
