Sony Plans A Remake Of “Real Genius”

Sony Pictures and Imagine Entertainment are teaming to develop a remake of the 1985 college comedy “Real Genius” says Pajiba.

Val Kilmer starred as a teenager who joins a think tank of young geniuses building a laser for a class project. They soon learn their professor intends to hand their work over to the military and they decide to put a stop to it.

A “second take” on the script is now out to writers. The project has no link to a rumoured sequel that was out there years ago.
