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".

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.

    Admire bryan singer story telling, not easy if you introducing a large cast.. As someone who do not know anything about x-men lore or identify himself as superhero geek.. His x-men 2000 film grab my interest on the series.. Still remember that powerful opening scene, the nazi concentration camp.. really set the theme of the series.. Found some of the other superhero movies.. Too comical for my taste still,.. Will see this movie on the first day of opening..

    1) Daredevil was ten years ago, and its problems were the director and script writers' fault. 2) Maybe but look at James Bond and hell even Batman throughout the years, people will get over it. 3) I want to tell you to check out the Town and Hollywoodland to see him act well, but you'd seem too hell bent to ever change your mind.
