80’s Teen Movie “Drive” to Get Remake

licensetodrive-still

A little trend is beginning to occur and that is a gender-reversal when it comes to remaking films. One can think of 2016’s Ghostbusters and the upcoming remake of 1987’s Overboard, where we see Eugenio Derbez in the Goldie Hawn role and Anna Faris in the Kurt Russell role.

Now, it has been announced that 20th Century Fox is developing a female-centric remake of the 1988 teen comedy License to Drive. The original film starred the late Corey Haim as Les Anderson, a kid who fails his driver’s test but goes out and steals his grandfather’s classic Cadillac for a date with the most popular girl in school…and yes, this is a night Les would never forget.

John Davis will be producing the film and writing the script will be the team of Alish Brophy and Scott Miles and it is being described as a female version of Superbad.

More as this develops.
