"WarGames" Remake Hires Director and Writer

"WarGames" Remake Hires Director and WriterSubmit Comment
MGM has been working on a remake of "WarGames" for years, with Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses) previously attached to direct. Apparently Gordon dropped out, because the project stalled.

Now comes word that MGM is once again making a push to get "WarGames" back into development. The studio is in negotiations with Dean Israelite (Project Almanac) to direct and has signed Arash Amel (Grace of Monaco) to re-write the script.

At this point, the new movie has yet to get a cast, but MGM is considering Ansel Elgort (The Fault in Our Stars) and Tye Sheridan (Mud) for the lead role.

The original "WarGAmes" film was released in 1983 and starred Matthew Broderick as a young computer genius who hacks into a government system and accidentally initiates a computerized countdown to a nuclear weapons launch.

C'mon! Why haven't they remade the one 80's movie worth remaking:

They already did this with almost every season of 24. Pretty sure the whole we're gonna hack into a nuke thing has been done to death, and without the Soviet-US Cold War context, I seriously doubt it'll have the panache of the original. But good luck trying, I guess.
