Under siege has been widely regarded as one of Steven Seagal’s best films, but since the actor has been stuck in a live video limo for some time, maybe it’s time to go back to his previous glory. Deadline has reported that Warner Bros. develop Under siege Restart HBO for Max.
The Under siege the reboot is set to be controlled by Timo Tjahjanto (The night is coming for us) With Umair Aleem (Cover) set to write the script. Deadline says Tjahjanto and Aleem jointly developed a reboot pitch. In the original 1992 film, Steve Seagal starred as Casey Ryback, a former Navy Seal who now works as a chef in the USS Missouri, on a battleship to be decommissioned. When terrorists arrive to take control, Ryback is the only person who can stop them. The film also starred Tommy Lee Jones, Gary Busey and Erika Eleniak, and it also spawned a sequel. Under Siege 2: Dark Territory. There’s no word on whether Steven Seagal will re-enter Casey Ryback’s role in the Under Siege restart, but I personally wouldn’t bet on it.
