Universal Practicing "Weird Science" Again



Universal Pictures is set to board a remake of its 1985 teen flick "Weird Science."

In coming years, there sure will be more movie remakes to hit the big screen as Universal Pictures has added one more of the kind for future release. Moviehole has reported that the studio is about to develop "Weird Science", a redo of John Hughes' teen flick that it released in the theaters almost twenty-two years ago.

In bringing up the project to the surface, Universal is said to have hired up-and-coming writer Johnny Rosenthal to pen the screenplay with Scott Bernstein seating as producer. Rosenthal, whose script for "Me, Me, Me" was bought last year by New Line Cinema for a reported high-six figures, previously saw his airline comedy pitch "Friendly Skies" sold to Paramount Pictures.

The original "Science", toplined by Ilan-Michael Smith and Anthony Michael Hall, presents the pair as two super-nerds who hack into a U.S Government mainframe to create a computer simulation of "the perfect woman", but accidentally create a real-life woman instead. Following the popularity of the movie, a spin-off TV series was then made in 1994 and ran for five seasons on the USA Network for a total of 88 episodes.
