Universal Remaking 'Weird Science', Is Nothing Sacred?

If it wasn't already official, it's official now -- nothing in Hollywood is sacred.  Universal is moving forward with an R-rated remake of the John Hughes' classic Weird Science, which starred Anthony Michael Hall, Ilan Mitchell-Smith, Kelly LeBrock and Roberty Downey Jr.  The remake will be produced by Joel Silver.

Will I see it?  Yes.  Am I excited?  No.
Universal Pictures and Silver Pictures will remake Weird Science, the 1985 ultimate nerd wish fulfillment comedy that was written and directed by John Hughes. The film will be produced by Joel Silver, who made the original with Hughes at Universal. Michael Bacall will write the script. He scripted the sleeper hit Project X for Silver Pictures and wrote the script for 21 Jump Street, another 80s-centric property that became a hit for Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill.
