Weird Science Remake in the Works: 21 Jump Street Writer to Pen Script

Good news, John Hughes fans! (alt: Bad news, John Hughes fans!)

Weird Science is joining the ranks of everything else you've ever loved: it's getting a remake!

Weird Science Still

Universal has hired Michael Bacall, who turned what could have been an awful adaptation of 21 Jump Street into a huge comedy hit. So there is some hope yet.

The original film, released in 1985, starred Anthony Michael Hall, Kelly LeBrock, Ilan Mitchell-Smith, and Robert Downey, Jr. (Iron Man 3).

It centers on a pair of nerdy teens who create a real woman using their computer. The premise is a tad outdated and 80's, seeing as how everyone has a computer nowadays and understands fully that they can't zap a lady into existence.

...Believe me, I've tried.

But Bacall can surely find a fresh spin on this classic. Whether you're excited or mortified by the idea of redoing John Hughes, the Weird Science remake might actually be good.
