The 1984 romantic comedy stars Kathleen Turner as romance novelist Joan Wilder, who travels to Colombia to save her kidnapped sister, with the help of con man/charmer Jack T. Colton (Michael Douglas). The box office smash, which launched Turner's career and is considered Douglas' comeback film, spawned an equally successful sequel, 1985's Jewel of the Nile — and two killer theme songs, Eddy Grant's funky original and Ocean's peppier follow-up.
According to Deadline, the NBC version will similarly follow a "successful, yet unfulfilled woman" who sets out on an adventure trying to find her missing brother.
Let's cast this, folks. Who do you think should play the lead roles? I'll start: Desperate Housewife Eva Longoria and Brothers & Sisters' Dave Annable in the leads, Danny DeVito in the Danny DeVito role and Rizzoli & Isles' Colin Egglesfield as the missing brother, well, just because.
