Universal had a great time with the HIGHlarious R-rated version of 21 Jump Street, and so did we!
Now they're giving screenwriter Michael Bacall a shot at re-imagining the number one teen sci-fi comedy about a wish-granting sex computer of all time!
That's right! They're remaking Weird Science!
The 1985 comedy classic starred Anthony Michael Hall and where-are-they-now-favorite Ilan Mitchell-Smith as two high school losers who use science and magic to create a sexy genie!
Ooh, wait! Brainwave! Gender reversal! Two dorky girls can star with Channing as the sex computer!
No need to thank us, Mr. Bacall! Just make it amazing, and we'll call it even!
