Shockjock Howard Stern is producing, along with Larry Levinson, a remake of the 1979 pic, Rock ‘n’ Roll High School. Alex Winter (Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure) has been hired to write the script, says The Hollywood Reporter.
The movie was about a group of rebellious students who, with the help of punk rock band the Ramones, thwarted a repressive, rock-music-hating principal.
Stern is now partnered on two films with Levinson. They also are working on a remake of the raunchy Bob Clark-directed 1982 comedy Porky’s that could start production in the fall.
