Paramount is Sending Us Back to "Summer School"

by | July 12, 2005 | Comments

Screenwriters Kyle Pennekamp & Scott Turpel have been enlisted by Paramount to pen a remake of the 1987 comedy "Summer School," says Variety.

The original flick, which saw Mark Harmon ("Worth Winning") as a smart-aleck summer school teacher surrounded by young kooks, will be re-imagined as something that sounds a little … different. The new "Summer School" will focus on "the chaotic summer season in high school life, centering on a hard-nosed teacher aiming to be the next principal and the student who becomes his nemesis in achieving that goal."

So it’s more "Ferris Bueller" than it is "Summer School," actually.
