new trailer for the movie “Twisters,” a follow-up to 1996’s disaster flick “Twister” that hits theaters on July 19, social media alighted with viewers praying for a cameo from original star Helen Hunt.“I hope Helen Hunt makes a cameo in the new Twisters movie,” said user @_IAMeveryWoman on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter.@JTMitcell87 wanted a glimpse of the actress, too. “I kept waiting for Helen Hunt to show up, drop a pun, then fire Dorothy sensors into a twister with a modified shotgun,” they wrote.No such luck.So, will Hunt make an appearance in the movie 28 years after she first chased tornadoes?

A Universal source told The Post the 60-year-old actress is not returning for “Twisters.”The new film is instead led by Glen Powell (“Top Gun: Maverick”) as Tyler Owens, Daisy Edgar-Jones (“Where The Crawdads Sing”) as Kate Cooper and Anthony Ramos (“In The Heights”) as Javi.Other roles are filled by Maura Tierney (“ER”), Kiernan Shipka (“Chilling Adventures of Sabrina”) and David Corenswet (DC’s new Clark Kent/ Superman in the upcoming “Superman: Legacy”).An absent Hunt would gel with what Powell told Vogue in December — that “Twisters” is neither a reboot nor a sequel.“It’s definitely not a reboot,” the 35-year-old actor said. “We’re not trying to recreate the story from the first one.

It’s a completely original story.”Powell added: “There are no characters from the original movie back, so it’s not really a continuation… It’s just its own standalone story in the modern day.”Back in 2022, Deadline reported that the working story was about Jo (Hunt) and Bill’s (Paxton) daughter following in her parents’ footsteps.
