Deadline has the news, reporting that Every Which Way But Loose, the 1978 comedy that teamed Clint Eastwood with an orangutan named Clyde, is heading back to the big screen. The remake is looking to begin production this spring.
Scripted by Jeremy Joe Kronsberg, the original Every Which Way But Loose stars Eastwood as a trucker, Philo Beddoe, who, alongside his pet orangutan, finds plenty of trouble on the American Highway. Every Which Way But Loose grossed $85 million at the domestic box office and later received a sequel, Any Which Way You Can, in 1980. The followup brought in an additional $70 million.
