King Of Kong director Seth Gordon to reboot WarGames
Seth Gordon, who directed 2007’s excellent cult documentary King Of Kong: A Fistful Of Quarters, has been recruited by MGM to remake WarGames.
The original film was released in 1983, and was directed by Short Circuit’s John Badham. Matthew Broderick starred as a computer prodigy who discovers that his military game could launch real missiles.
Gordon’s got quite a challenge on his hands, considering Badham’s film garnered three Oscar nominations in the Sound, Cinematography and Writing departments.
