Howard Stern to produce new Rock 'n' Roll High School
Just in time for the end of summer vacation, Howard Stern is getting ready to go back to school. Rock ‘n’ Roll High School, to be exact. Stern is set to produce a remake of the 1979 film, along with Larry Levinson.
Best known as a shockjock on Sirius Satellite Radio, Stern is a fan of the original flick, in which punk rockers The Ramones help a bunch of teenagers take down their high school’s principal. Stern’s partnered with Levinson to produce not only Rock ‘n’ Roll High School, but also a remake of Porky’s, the 1982 comedy combining horny high schoolers and sketchy night clubs.
Alex Winter, who acted opposite Keanu Reeves in Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure but now writes and directs, has been hired to script the High School project. "This movie seemed so ripe for a remake," he told Variety.
Production for Porky’s could start as early as this fall, just as the high schoolers are flocking to school with their brand-new notebooks and plans for musical shenanigans in the hallways.
