'WarGames' Could Get Reboot Treatment


Rumor has it, Leonardo DiCaprio is setting his eyes on producing a reboot to the John Badham-directed 1983 hacker film, 'WarGames'.

Production Weekly has come out with an interesting tidbit about "WarGames". Through its Twitter feed, the trade breaks out that Leonardo DiCaprio is looking forward to work with MGM in producing a remake to the John Badham-directed 1983 sci-fi hacker film.

Aside from the possibility of the 34-year-old actor producing the reboot with MGM, no other detail about the proposed feature film project has been shared by Production Weekly. Meanwhile, both MGM and DiCaprio have yet to release any statement regarding this report.

The original "WarGames" is written by Lawrence Lasker and Walter F. Parkes. Starring Matthew Broderick as the lead actor, it tells the story of a young hacker and his effort to prevent a super intelligent military computer from causing World War III. Collecting over $74 million after five months in the U.S., the film also received three Oscars nominations.

Its sequel, "Wargames: The Dead Code", was released by MGM as a direct-to-DVD movie on July 29, 2008. It follows hacker Will Farmer who engages a government super-computer named Ripley in an online terrorist-attack simulation game. Directed by Stuart Gillard, it stars Matt Lanter as Farmer.
