For some reason, Paramount has been trying to remake Carl Reiner’s Summer School for more than a few years. Amongst the 1980s teenage, sexy, goofy romps, this one is at least in the higher realm of notability. The story of a gym coach who is forced to cancel some sweet summer plans to teach a bunch of dumb kids in an English class, it’s now found a willing champion in Adam Sandler‘s Happy Madison Productions.

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that they’re going to team with Paramount on the remake. There’s nothing more to the story except speculation and whatever Sandler jokes can be mined from it.

Of course, there’s also the movie nerd subplot to the movie where two of the students are obsessed with Texas Chainsaw Massacre and horror movies. So will the remake feature two students obsessed with found footage horror? With Paranormal Activity? Or will they scrap it all together? These are the questions we all have when there’s no real information to go around.
