Jenna Dewan is joining Ryan Pinkston and Nick Zano in Fox Atomic's remake of the 1984 comedy Revenge of the Nerds, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Kyle Newman is directing.

Dewan plays an 18-year-old college freshman who catches the eye of nerd Max, played by Christopher Marquette, on their first day at their new college.

Pinkston is playing the role of Felch, a 15-year-old whiz kid who is in over his head as he enters his first year of college.

Zano plays the guitar-toting surf-rat sophomore quarterback who is the president of the Alpha Beta Fraternity and the nerds' nemesis.

Shooting began this week in Atlanta.
