"Missing in Action" won't be missing for much longer.

The 1984 Chuck Norris action flick will be remade by World Wrestling Entertainment's movie division, according to The Hollywood Reporter. While the original had Norris' character returning to Vietnam to save several prisoners of war, the remake will be updated to fit a similar plot onto the Iraq war. There's no word yet on who will star or whether Norris will return in some capacity.

Norris, 68, hasn't graced the big screen since 2004's "Dodgeball," though he has kept in the public eye thanks to a popular Internet meme.
