the original movie, Tornado, was a massive commercial success for Universal, wreaking havoc at the global box office and grossing $500 million worldwide. The film, written by Michael Crichton and Anne Marie Martinfeatured an estranged couple who had previously chased storms together and reunite to finalize their divorce just as a perfect storm front presents itself to give them the chance to chase a once-in-a-lifetime EF-5 super cell tornado in Oklahoma. Bill Paxton and Helen Hunt played Bill and Jo Harding, the film’s protagonists.
Hunt’s character leads a team of underfunded students who have built a machine, based on Paxton’s character designs, that can collect data inside tornadoes – the catch is, they have to get in front of one to deploy it. When Bill discovers that his creation, Dorothy, is ready, he joins the team for one last time.
The film also featured a colorful ensemble cast, including the likes of Cary Elwes, Jami Gertz, Alan Ruck, Jeremy Davies and Philip Seymour Hoffman, which provided both the comedic relief and the film’s most-quoted lines. The film was so popular that it even spawned its own attraction at Universal theme parks around the world.

Paxton and Hunt reprized their roles for the attraction.
Hunt had already pitched her own spin for a sequel, which she revealed in 2021 – however, the studio rejected her idea due to her character’s death in the film.
