Kyle Newman has signed on to direct Fox Atomic's Revenge of the Nerds, says The Hollywood Reporter.
The film reteams Newman with screenwriter Adam F. Goldberg, who is rewriting the latest "Nerds" incarnation. The pair worked together on Newman's upcoming Fanboys, which will be distributed by The Weinstein Company.
McG and David Manpearl are producing the remake of the seminal teen comedy from 1984.
I had SUCH a crush on Gilbert, played by Anthony Edwards. I wonder who will be cast in that role?
