Douglas Racing the Monsoon
New Romancing the Stone sequel.
- Actor Michael Douglas (Mr. Catherine Zeta-Jones) has signed to star in and produce Racing the Monsoon, a second sequel to Romancing the Stone.  The original, directed by Robert Zemeckis, was one of the biggest films of 1984. A lackluster sequel, Jewel of the Nile, followed in 1985.

Today's Variety reveals that Douglas has hooked up with India's Percept Picture Company to produce the film which will reportedly revolve around a diamond robbery in India.

Steven Carr (Daddy Day Care, Doctor Doolittle 2) will direct the film.

Douglas and the filmmakers are reportedly keen to sign Bollywood star Aishwarya Rai (Bride and Prejudice, Devdas) for the female lead.

Shailendra Singh, managing director of Percept Picture Company says, "This will be a Hollywood film, inspired by India, which will be shot here with a mostly Indian cast."

Production on Racing the Monsoon is due to start by the end of 2005.
