Well the movie industry is at it again with yet another remake in the works This time with the 80s movie classic weird science. Leave our movies alone for god sake and come up with an original story. If it’s not broken don’t fix it! This movie is in my dvd collection and is another fantastic movie that they are going to be messing with. I cant help but wonder if they are going to do a gender reversal for this one too as it seems to be the “in thing” at the moment.
Recapping the 1985 classic:
If you have ever seen this movie then you would know how fantastically fun it actually is. This 80s classic takes us on a journey with teen misfits Gary (Anthony Michael Hall) and Wyatt (Ian Mitchell Smith), when they decide to attempt in making a woman on their computer. As they sit there wearing Bras on their heads. A freak electrical accident bring their woman to life in the form of the very beautiful, superhuman Lisa (Kelly LeBrock).
She sets about on making the misfits popular and confident. She kits them out with new clothes, surprises them with a Porsche. Helps them stand up to the jerks in school Ian (Robert Downey Jr,) and max (Robert Rusler). Lisa also throws them a party, takes them to a club where they get sloshed. She also stands up to Gary’s parents. All the while they have to hide Lisa’s existence from Wyatt’s nightmare of a big brother Chet (Bill Paxton).
Universal pictures and Silver Pictures will remake this amazing comedy, it will produced by Joel Silver, who made the made the original at universal. Michael Bacall will write the script, he scripted the sleeper hit project X and wrote the script for 21 jump street. OMG just leave this movie alone! the industry is already taking so many amazing movies and bringing them in to modern times when they don’t need to be. I’m sorry to all the classic movie fans I have had to break this too.
