Romancing the Stone (1984), the predecessor of this film, was the only produced screenplay for writer Diane Thomas. She had been working as a waitress in Malibu when producer/star Michael Douglas optioned her script for $250,000, allowing her to quit her job. Sadly, Thomas died in a car accident, while working on a new movie project with Steven Spielberg the following year, about seven weeks before the opening of this film. She was a passenger while her boyfriend was driving - in a Porsche that Douglas had bought for her as a thank you gift. This film is dedicated "In Memory of" Thomas. See more »

Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner reunite as the hard-hitting and constantly bickering couple Jack and Joan for the hilariously violent sequel to "Romancing the Stone," "The Jewel of the Nile." This time, our heroes are looking for the jewel lost somewhere in the Sahara, battling shieks, hostile soldiers, and crazy tribal men. Danny DeVito also returns as the greedy wind-bag Ralph. With enough laughs, romance, and bullets to satisfy the comedic, romantic, and action fan in you, "The Jewel of the Nile" is your ticket for a go
