Howard Wants To Rock!

| Filed under: Film FlickersHoward Stern

wenn1769136.jpg

Howard Stern has decided to get back into films.

This time around, though, he's sticking to producing.

The King of All Media is working on a remake the 1979 film Rock 'n' Roll High School.

The film centers around a group of students who get help from the rock band the Ramones to rebel against the school's principal.

Sounds like an edgier High School Musical!

Alex Winter has been hired to write the script. He's probably best remembered for his 1989 role as Bill in Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure.

Winter says, "I've now done so much stuff in music videos, and the Napster movie, that the chance to bridge music and comedy was something that intrigued me. This movie seemed so ripe for a remake."

As for Stern, he's also remaking the classic 1982 flick Porky's.

That's said to start production in the fall.

LOVE Porky's!

    The king of all media says, " a vote for Barrick Obama, is a vote for communism." That's why he's the king!

    Another overated Jew in the media. Drunk on power. A classic film is a classic film. There is nothing wrong with the originals. Leave them alone! It's time for thsi overated schmuck to finally retire.

    They need to cast Green Day in the Ramones part for the band. And this better not be lame like the sequel to the orginal.



  15. 15

    Please don't compare Rock N Roll High Scholl to High School Musical! Joey will be turning over in his grave!!!



  16. 16

    W.T.F.?? Why can't people just leave the classic flicks alone?? Is the movie industry THAT out of IDEAS??
    it would appear so.
    fucking idiots

    I didn't realize that Howard was a tranny. I mean, I knew the guy was ugly as sin but ….

  19. haha says – reply to this


    19

    hmmm….I'm thinking that's a wig? It seems too thick/dark/unnatural. The fact that he obsesses about others on the show dying their hair and then pointing out that he doesn't dye his hair makes me wonder. And his father is so bald, so there's another clue.

    thats actually pretty awesome. Alex Winter does good work.



  23. 23

    Rock & Roll High School is a classic. The Ramons are actually in it…check it out next time it is on cable…It is a bit dated, but funny as hell, maybe for its campyness…Good move Howard!!!

    The "Napster" movie? Oh yeah…who could forget that one? What the hell is that? Alex Winter had that tv show a million years ago that was one of the most unfunny things ever. Hope he found a sense of humor since then. God knows he's had plenty of free time to do so.

    This is wrong. So very very wrong. There is no way to recreate the camp and cheese of the Original. Shame on you Howard.

    Howard has the hair to actually play a Ramone

    First they ruined Hairspray by having that loser John Travolta replacing Divine. Now they will ruin Rock N Roll Highschool by finding some losers to replace the Ramones. It saddens me that no one can leave perfect movies alone. Why don't we just redo Grease and have some monkeys act in it.

  39. me says – reply to this


    39

    why can't these jerks leave good movies alone, why you got to remake something that was already successful…………are you so vain you think you can do better then the orginal, get the f over yourself and leave the movies alone - and try to come up with an orginal thought!!!

  40. JANE says – reply to this


    40

    no and no. Argh….why remake either? you especially cant freaking remake rock n roll high school!!! seriously. i hate howard stern.

  41. Tiny says – reply to this


    41

    My guess is that Howard really wants to be starring in and producing pornos, not doing re-makes of lame 80s movies.

    I'm also guessing that this isn't going to happen because his schlong is too small to properly schtup his co-stars.

  42. Gabby says – reply to this


    42

    is that even possible without the Ramones.

    I mean really?

  43. Mars says – reply to this


    43

    Rock 'n' Roll High School is nothing like fucking High School Musical.
    As for re-making Porky's - NOOOOOOOOOOO

  44. RJII says – reply to this


    44

    he sure is ugly and his girlfriend looks like a horse. but I like his sirius show.



  45. 45

    Porky's = tit and ass :) One of the great movies of the 80's.



  46. 46

    This is an awful picture - sorry Howard!!

  47. ginam says – reply to this


    47

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

    That movie is my favorite movie of all time! I'm a huge Ramones fan and I know Howard Stern was a big fan too but… please gawwwd it needs to be left alone!
    LET THE RAMONES REST IN PEACE!

    Porky's rocked! I don't want Howard Stern to remake it because it will SUCK BIG TIME. Why is everyone remaking the original movies nowadays. Can't someone come up with their own ideas anymore??

  52. rawr says – reply to this


    52

    whoever is working on this remake seriously needs to kill themselves. How the fuck can you remake Rock'n'Roll High School without The Ramones?

    55

    aside from the fact that Howard Stern's a douche, without The Ramones, who cares? he's only doing it because since he's gone to Sirius, his "King Of All Media" clout has been cut to nothing. anything he says or does anymore can't shock because only a fraction of his old audience still exists since they now have to pay to listen to his idiocy. he may be filthy rich, but this guy is OLD NEWS.

    57

    I dropped him when he went to satellite but I listened for many years and he has been talking about making these two movies for about ten years or more. Boring, he just wants some publicity, nobody is aware of him anymore,

  58. redra says – reply to this


    58

    He's been talking about those two remakes for YEARS. YEARS. They are never going to get made.

    Don't compare Rock and Roll High School to fucking High School Musical. Rock and Roll High School was epic. High School Music was a bunch of talentless fuckheads running around pretending to sing shittyass music. Fuck off, Perez

    he's been talking about this far before the whole resurgence of the remake thing— go for it-

    I listen to Howard's show everyday from start to finish, but what the hell is this non-story, Perez? Is Howard paying you to comment about him on your site, so he'll seem more relevant to youths? I gotta freakin know!!

  66. ;{ says – reply to this


    66

    We actually get to see Howard's BLUE eyes. Mazal tov!!!



  67. 67

    Who really cares about anything Howard does anymore? Isn't he old enough to be your grand-daddy? Maybe remaking "Cocoon" is something he should look into. High school is a VERY DISTANT memory for him.

    What the hell? Why can't idiots like Howard Stern leave GOOD movies alone … this is almost as bad as MTV remaking Rocky Horror Picture Show. These movies don't need to be touched by jackasses like them!

    Oh bullshit, bullshit, bullshit…I predict right now that this project will NEVER get made, just like Howard's Porky's remake will NEVER get made, just like Howard's Doomsday cartoon series will NEVER get made, just like Howard's Sam Kinison biopic will NEVER get made, etc., etc., etc. He talks shit about these projects and then nothing ever happens. Probably not his fault, but still, it's annoying to hear about more and more stuff that will never happen. Just give it a rest Howard and stick to radio and write another book.
