    Default WarGames remake coming from King of Kong director

    Global thermonuclear war is coming back to a theater near you. And, fittingly, a gamer is helping make it happen.

    Deadline reports that the 1983 film WarGames' is getting rebooted by MGM, who have tapped Seth Gordon -- the man behind the acclaimed video game documentary The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters' -- to direct.

    It's great news for fans of the original. Starring Matthew Broderick and Ally Sheedy, WarGames' tells the story of a young computer geek who hacks into a government network to play some games and accidentally triggers World War III. Not only was it one of the first mainstream Hollywood hits to tap into the burgeoning field of tech hacking and online gaming (it's even been credited as the first film to reference the security term "firewall"), but it was also Broderick's first big hit, predating Ferris Bueller's Day Off' by a good three years. A direct-to-video sequel was released in 2008, but count yourself lucky if you missed it.

    Gordon, meanwhile, endeared himself to gamers with his breakthrough 2007 documentary about competing Donkey Kong players. His latest work, the comedy Horrible Bosses', opens July 8th.

    WarGames' joins a host of other MGM reboots being planned out, including new takes on Mr. Mom.' RoboCop' and Poltergeist.'

    Stupid idea. Can Matthew Broderick play a fat General cameo in this one?

    This fat dude with fellowship clout should remake THE TOWERING INFERNO!

    Get Jon Cryer. He'd be cheaper.

    Little known fact (and perhaps that's a good thing)....a sequel to WarGames was made in 2008. Straight to DVD - of course.

    No one, not one actor, from the original appeared.

    A Mr. Mom remake? Keaton is so underrated.

    What happened to his ability to choose a script, though?

    I could see it working, but it probably won't.

    Man, I had it for Ali sheedy in that movie back in the day.

    Too many damn remakes!!!

    Can't Hollywood be original for a change?

    You thought Peter Jackson was doing this? Naaaawww....."WarGames" would be small potatoes for him. Besides, he's too busy working on two "Hobbit" films.
