It's Not A Job, It's An Adventure: Under Siege Reboot Coming To HBO MAX


With word breaking last week that the classic Patrick Swayze action flick Road House would be remade with a specific A-lister taking up the lead role, it appears that another successful movie will be undergoing the remake/reboot treatment. That's right, folks. HBO MAX in partnership with Warner Bros. is readying a full reboot of the Steven Seagal flick, Under Siege. We're not sure why but the execs over at WB are prepping a full on retread of the 1992 movie about a NAVY SEAL working as a cook that fights off a band of terrorists aboard a military vessel. We're not sure why this is a primary choice as a remake but there's no stopping them now. 

No word has been announced whether Seagal will make an appearance as lead character Casey Ryback but we're betting he sits this one out. He hasn't led a major motion picture in close to two decades and probably won't let his ego play a back seat to a new star. 

The original Under Siege did well enough at cinemas and on home video to drum up a sequel, Under Siege 2: Dark Territory. This latest reboot will be directed by Timo Tjahjanto (The Night Comes For Us). It will be a direct to HBO MAX release.
