The latest in proof that Hollywood is out of ideas is MGM's dogged pursuit of remaking the 1983 classic WarGames. To which we say: Stop it.
MGM's been trying to get this project off the ground for years, having once had Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses) attached to direct. Now, MGM is negotiating with Dean Israelite (the time travel found footage movie Project Almanac) to take directing duties. As for a writer, MGM's reportedly zeroing in on Arash Amel (Grace of Monaco, I Am Legend 2, Seducing Ingrid Bergman) to write another script.
It's not these choices that are concerning. It's that MGM is so set on making this film, which just seems so unnecessary.
