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 The premise is a tad outdated and 80's, seeing as how everyone has a computer nowadays and understands fully that they can't zap a lady into existence.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.


The movie and TV show versions were the best. I do not know about the movie or show remake of "Weird Science".


.......moving backwards, THIS IS THE FUTURE IN AMERICA?
