The revenge of REVENGE OF THE NERDS
It's a remake, but will Ogre be in it? </B>

<I>You know that you're getting old when movies that you first saw as a teenager are being remade. The latest movie project that is helping to advance old age for kids of the 1980s is a remake of the 1984 comedy picture REVENGE OF THE NERDS, a tale of how the geeks strike back against the jocks and popular kids that was told well before Bill Gates made his first billion dollars.

Putting together the remake are CHARLIE'S ANGELS director McG and his biz partner Stephanie Savage (they'll produce the new NERDS); Gabe Sachs and Jeff Judah, creators of ABC's new series LIFE AS WE KNOW IT, are writing the film's screenplay; and O.C. star Adam Brody and GROUNDED FOR LIFE's Brett Harrison are co-producing the movie as well as may star in it.


According to the story in Variety, Brody and Harrison came up with the idea for a remake and then pitched it to McG on the set of THE O.C., the Fox series the director is an executive producer of. They took it to Fox Searchlight Pictures, who bought it, and now it's in development.


The new movie will likely feature cameos by some of the stars from the first film (among them former ER cast member Anthony Edwards) and will mirror the original's storyline.

God Hollywood is stupid. Aaaaaaagh.
I wish it was the seventies. Or the fifties. Just for film, those were otherwise rather shit decades. At least the fifties was. The seventies had some nice music.

they are definitely running low on ideas with more and more remakes every year it seems.

either that or they just figure remakes are a surefire cash grab

I'm sure it will be a horrible reamke, just like everything else that is remade form hollywood. One of us should write movie, at least we know not to try and recreate good movies of the past.

"Toby, what movie could possibly be
worth drivin’ 260 miles round trip
for?"

"It’s a new film called “Revenge of
the Nerds.” It’s about a group of
nerd college students who are being
picked on all the time by the
jocks, so they decide to take
revenge. I already saw it once."

"Wow, ya really dig this movie."

"I like it a lot, Harvey."

I still think Peter Jackson's KING KONG remake is going to be an even bigger train wreck than this.

I don't mind if they remake bad movies, but stay the fuck away from classics, you fat bastard.

And Jack Black too. Jesus.

Fuck you Peter Jackson and a double dutch fuck you to the slobbering LOTR fanboys who back this up.

Fuck!

This is good because I'm sure there are no quality original screenplays that could be produced

possibly so but I just REALLY hate slavish devotion to Peter Jackson and complete slagging on any and all remakes --- ASIDE from what Peter Jackson choses to make.

Heaven forbid someone says something bad about Peter Jackson! Run for the hills!

am i the only one who feels depressingly older from hearing this information? fuck, might as well remake goonies, ghostbusters and jurassic park all starring justin timberlake.

they can't do the original justice though, half of the fun of the original is 80s humor/fashion/culture.

that's exactly what i was thinking of.

that concert was one of the greatest moments in film history and i consider it untouchable.
