Disney are once again looking at the 20th Century Studios back catalogue for ideas as Variety is reporting that a remake of “Revenge Of The Nerds” is in early development.
Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane is set to remake the 1980s classic, with Keith and Kenny Lucas, set to co-write and star in the new film. Alex Rubens, who has previously worked on “The Twilight Zone,” “Key and Peele,” and “Rick and Morty”, is also co-writing the film.
The twins have previously appeared in “22 Jump Street” and shows such as “Arrested Development” and “Dope State”. They are also working on a couple of other movies, including “Judas and the Black Messiah” and a new film with Phil Lord and Christopher Miller.
Seth MacFarlane will be a producer on the film, as part of his production company, Fuzzy Door, along with Erica Huggins. Fuzzy Door’s Alana Kleiman will also be an executive producer on the reboot.
The original “Revenge Of The Nerds” movie was released in 1984 and spawned multiple sequels. The film’s story is set at Adams College, where the jocks rule the school from their house on high, the Alpha Beta fraternity. So when a group of socially-challenged misfits try to go Greek, they’re instantly rejected by every house on campus. Deciding to start their own fraternity to protect their outcast brothers, the campus nerds soon find themselves in a battle royale as the Alpha Betas try to crush their new rivals.
You can currently watch the original “Revenge Of The Nerds” on Hulu via Cinemax.
