The "Revenge" Plan Is Shut Down

Fox Atomic has officially stopped the production on "Revenge of the Nerds."

After being put on hold earlier this month, "Revenge of the Nerds" sadly has come to its end this time. Variety learned that Fox Atomic has officially concluded to stop the production on the project originally plotted for a summer release next year.

The reason behind this decision is said to be due to the dissatisfaction felt by the president of Fox Atomic, Peter Rice, concerning the dailies and his assumption that the movie has a smaller scale than the kind of film he is planning to release under the studio banner. The picture itself previously faced a refusal from officials at Atlanta's Emory University dealing with the on-campus shooting permit.

Intended to be a remake of the 1984 comedy of the same title, the picture actually had completed its cast which included names like , , and while taking in Kyle Newman to direct.
