"Revenge of the Nerds" Remake Aims to Start Production

by | October 2, 2006 | Comments

Effortlessly proving that Hollywood has officially run out of new ideas … production is about to get underway on that "Revenge of the Nerds" remake we’ve been hearing about. Can a remake of "Private School" be far behind?

From Variety: "On Oct. 9, filming begins in Atlanta on "Revenge of the Nerds," a reimagining of the 1984 cult comedy being produced by McG and his Wonderland Sound & Vision partner David Manpearl.

Christopher Marquette ("Fanboys," "The Girl Next Door") and Kristin Cavallari (formerly of the MTV series "Laguna Beach") have been cast in the film. Marquette will play the leader of the nerds, and Cavallari a sorority girl alongside Katie Cassidy (the forthcoming "Dallas"). Also newly cast in the pic are Dan Byrd ("The Hills Have Eyes") and Efren Ramirez ("Napoleon Dynamite").

Kyle Newman
