 Universal Pictures Remaking 'Weird Science"
"Weird Science" one of those great quirky adolescent movies form the 80's that was great for its time and had a lot of nostalgia, is getting a redo. I loved it when it came out, and i love it now for nostalgic purposes. I am not sure how it translates to today's kids. Check out more details on it below and share your thoughts.

John Hughes has to be rolling in his grave but Universal Pictures and Silver Pictures have decided to remake Weird Science, the 1985 ultimate nerd wish fulfillment comedy that was written and directed by John Hughes. The remake will be produced again by Joel Silver and the script is being written by Michael Bacall. Universal and Silver Pictures are looking to redo the remake into an edgier R-rated comedy in line with 21 Jump Street and The Hangover. No information provided on who will star or who will helm the project.

The original starred Michael Anthony Hall and Ilan Mitchell-Smith as brainy nerds who attempt to create the perfect woman to fulfill their heavy-breathing adolescent fantasies, only to find she is something more than a sex object. The original also starred Bill Paxton and Robert Downey Jr, with Kelly LeBrock playing the bombshell creation.

They tried to capture the magic once before in the 90's with the lovely Vanessa Angel

the show was OK but the movie was still ten times better.
They will try to modernize it.
they will add teens who are texting, and make it relatable to today.
there will probably be not be nukes in the kitchen though.
Chet was not a blob of excrement. he was...

some odd creature.
with a crewcut.

I will NOT go see it the TV version was bad enough. oh and Glee totally stole the slushee idea from Weird Science.

The movie was about nerds who got picked on, just like Revenge of the Nerds, the Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, Can't buy me Love and a host of other 80's movies. The thing was the underdog triumphed in the end.

btw if you want to see what passes for modern bullying go watch Bully.

I don't remember seeing anything of the level these kids went through in the film.
it is on netflix.
the things those kids go through...its pure torture. and yeah, Its infuriating and emotional to watch.

the geeks in weird science become heroes, with Lisa's help, and they learn lessons of life. Sure it is a comedy but it has a serious undertone to it too. buried way down. they even get the girls. by being themselves. and that was the true lesson in there, be yourself.

Yah maybe but you knwo with the way sh!t is today it'd be all whinny and not nearly as funny. Yaknow cause everythign gotta have some stupid ass message about whatever....saure the odl oen had a bit of a message but it was cleverly disguised. Hey there is a MINISCULE chance the remake could be justa s good but i sure as hell aint holdin' my breath.

I think you misunderstood me I dont want to see it at all. It would be a pale shadow of the original, changed for a modern audience, but aside from any political commentary, I think the humor wil be on par with...old school, the hangover, etc. modern humor. btw I have not seen any of those.

I don't think humor would even be on par with Hangover...that was crude but not ina sci fi making a chick kinda way. Thats something that could happen (or maybe in some of us cases HAS happened....i say nothing). Weird Science needs to be out there and classily crude....and yah it wont even be PALE shadow...it will be somethign not even funny and will probably have a wayans in it...
