The WarGames remake is pressing ahead, and The Fault In Our Stars' Ansel Elgort is linked with the lead role...


The planned remake of John Badhams's 80s favourite WarGames is still pressing ahead, with MGM now targeting a new director for the project. Seth Gordon, of Horrible Bosses fame, had originally been earmarked to direct this one (he's since moved onto Uncharted), but it now seems as though Dean Israelite is to get the nod.

Israelite has wrapped on his directorial debut, Project Alamanc, for which hopes seem rather high. MGM is now in negotiations with him for WarGames, which is getting a screenplay rewrite at the moment from Arash Amel (who penned Grace Of Monaco).

A report from The Wrap suggests that Ansel Elgort (The Fault In Our Stars) and Tye Sheridan (Mud) have been linked with taking on the lead role, originally played by Matthew Broderick. »
