Back to School: According to The Hollywood Reporter, MGM is developing a remake of the Rodney Dangerfield starrer Back to School which the studio envisions as a starring vehicle for Cedric the Entertainer.

David Ronn and Jay Scherick are writing the script.

The remake will be based loosely on the 1986 Orion Pictures comedy, which grossed more than $91 million domestically.

Co-written by Dangerfield, the film followed the exploits of a fun-loving businessman who enrolls in college alongside his disheartened son to help him get through school.
