Does The World Need A “Rock N Roll High School” Remake? (Even If It’s Written By Bill S. Preston, Esq.?)

Well, too bad, because it’s getting one: Howard Stern is co-producing a remake of the 1982 film that will have its script penned by Alex Winter, a.k.a. Bill from the Bill & Ted movies and the director of Extreme’s video for “Decadence Dance.” “This movie seemed so ripe for a remake,” Winter told Variety. Call me crazy, but I have a feeling that the role of the Ramones will get played by, I don’t know, McFly or Busted or some other band that some desperate major-label exec is really trying to “break.” And if that does indeed come to pass, the whole enterprise is going to be more than a little bogus, dude.
