A “War Games” reboot? Huh? Wow, okay. War Games is one of several major remake projects that newly reconstituted MGM has in the works. The original 1983 movie had Matthew Broderick and Ally Sheedy starring as computer prodigies who finds a back door into a military computer program. They think they’re playing games with the computer only to find they could trigger WWIII if the computer launches nuclear missiles at the Russians.
Gonna be interesting to see how they’re gonna remake this and in this new internet/digital age, the story concept for the movie should be a breeze. And according to Deadline, and most likely referring to the possible success of the revamp, “the level of sophistication with video games and the Internet in the digital age opens a wealth of possibilities.”
Are you looking forward to this? Blah, you’re probably too young to remember the original.
