WEIRD SCIENCE Remake in the Works

By AMC April 20, 2013

In the theme of remaking classics, word just hit that a remake of the John Hughes' 1985 comedy "Weird Science" is getting the remake treatment.

The original gem starred Anthony Michael Hall and Ilan Mitchell-Smith as two nerds who create their perfect woman by way of their computer, in the form of the gorgeous Kelly LeBrock. Soon Lisa, as they named her, exposes them to a different life where they can be popular and have a backbone. Robert Downey Jr. and Bill Paxton also starred.

Michael Bacall ("21 Jump Street and "Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World") is penning the script. The aim is to re-conceptualize the film and make it R-rated in the vein of "The Hangover".
