20th Century Fox green-lit a remake of the film under its then-existing Fox Atomic label, with the intent to release it in 2007. Filming began in Atlanta, Georgia in 2006 with a cast including Adam Brody (who also co-produced), Jenna Dewan, Chris Marquette and Efren Ramirez with Kyle Newman directing. The film was originally going to be shot on the Emory College campus until college officials objected to the film's raunchy content. The production experienced difficulties of shooting on the smaller Agnes Scott campus, particularly the outdoor scenes. The film was scrapped early on in production after studio head Peter Rice disliked the dailies. Plans to remake the film have been indefinitely shelved. See more »

She's not that kind of girl, Booger.
Why? Does she have a penis?

I first saw "Revenge of the Nerds" when I was ten (that's right, ten). Some people at school had been making fun of me, calling me a nerd. After I saw "ROTF", I was finally proud to call myself a nerd (albeit not one who wears glasses, has buck teeth, and has his pant legs halfway up his calves).
It's especially great that the nerds were such a diverse group of people (Booger may have been gross, but he clearly had a brain).
And there's also an interesting thing about the cast. Robert Carradine must be the only person who has co-starred with both Jane Fonda (he played the brother in "Coming Home") and with the guy who played Booger. And I never realized that Stan was played by the same guy who played Roger on "Happy Days".
So, if you're any kind of individual who has spent his/her life getting bullied, this is the movie for you!
