We’ve heard bits and pieces about MGM’s planned WarGames remake from producer/hopeful-director Seth Gordon over the last year or so, but today some more solid news came across the wire. It’s looking as if Gordon won’t be directing the remake of John Badham’s 1983 Oscar-nominated cult classic, since MGM is in negotiations with Dean Israelite to helm the picture. Also, screenwriter Arash Amel is set to rewrite the script, which was previously drafted by Noah Oppenheim and Zak Penn. Similar to the original film, the plot is expected to follow a teenage hacker who stumbles into a sensitive computer program. Stepping into Matthew Broderick’s shoes for the lead may be either Ansel Elgort, Tye Sheridan, or another unnamed actor. Hit the jump for more.
