    REAL GENIUS REMAKE?

    The new thing in Hollywood these days is either to adapt from a book or throwing back the 80's for you. It looks like Val Kilmer's Real Genius will be the next to go.

    According to Pajiba and Empire Online, Ron Howard and Brian Grazer's Imagine Entertainment together with Sony Pictures (Columbia) are now targeting the movie as a likely candidate. The 1985 comedy original did not fare that well on the box office but remains a beloved cult classic about the adventures of college students figuring out their own intellects while simultaneously being duped by a slimy professor into working on a laser project that will be twisted into military uses.

    15 years later, the remake is a possibility. If this work, Real Genius will joined the huge army of 80's adaptation trend including Clash Of The Titans, The Karate Kid, A Nightmare on Elm Street and many more. But many of the adults above 30 love the original but what would it be if a remake is to be done? Damaging? Its too early to say though but I will love to watch the original one if it is so interesting after all.

    Meanwhile, the involvement of Val Kilmer is still unknown although there used to be rumors about a sequel!!
