Universal set to remake Weird Science

The remake train rolls on, with Universal revealing their plans to update John Hughes’ Weird Science.

Weird Science

According to Deadline, Universal Pictures will team with Silver Pictures for a modern reboot of the raunchy 1985 flick.

Michael Bacall (21 Jump Street, Project X) will script the feature, concerning a duo of nerdy teens who create their dream woman from scratch.

Though many will recall the original fondly – and plenty of boys will forever have memories of Kelly LeBrock’s entrance etched into their brain – Weird Science is far from an unimpeachable classic.

In fact, this news is in direct opposition to my ongoing request that Universal destroy all prints of the offensive, violently unfunny original.
