Sure, Remake 'Explorers' Now
Paramount is remaking Explorers, the 1985 Joe Dante film about boys exploring their adolescence through a space travel metaphor, THR reports. The original marked the film debuts of Ethan Hawke and River Phoenix, and, less notably, also starred Jason Presson and an alien you'd gladly swap out for a Jar Jar. This remake doesn't have any actors attached, but Better Living Through Chemistry writer-directors Geoff Moore and David Posamentier are said to be writing the script. It will be just like the original, except now the third kid will probably be The Rock.
