Eat It Nerds, Now Comes “Revenge of the Jocks”

“Jackass” film series director Jeff Tremaine will make his narrative feature debut on the comedy “Revenge of the Jocks” at Warner Bros. Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter.

The film takes the premise of 1980’s comedy hit “Revenge of the Nerds” and turns it around. In this incarnation, the story follows three popular high school jocks whose glory days are long behind them.

Now they find themselves forced to adapt to a world run by the geek and nerd crowd, a few who’re happy to unleash their own torment on them.

“I Heart Huckabees” scribe Jeff Baena is currently re-writing the script from Rami and Etan Cohen which the studio picked up in early 2009. Peter Abrams, Robert L. Levy, Michael Schreiber and Andrew Panay are producing.
