The original WarGames, which starred Matthew Broderick and Ally Sheedy, centered on a whiz kid computer programmer who finds a way inside the government's military computer system. Seth Gordon will develop the screenplay for MGM, which has a spate of remakes in development including RoboCop and Carrie.
Little is known about the story, but it is said that the studio is giving Seth Gordon a lot of room to craft a new story set in the 21st Century.
No production schedule was given for the WarGames remake yet.
