It looks like Howard Stern’s long thought dead remake of Porky’s is back on track. Stern recently took the day off from his radio show to work on the film according to Slashfilm.
Howard Stern has been hard at work on a remake of the cult teen comedy film Porky’s. Last week Stern took a vacation from his daily Sirius Satellite Radio Show and worked on the film project which the Shock Jock now claims is “ready to go.” “They say it’s all greenlit and everything, ready to go. They say they can even start shooting in October, but I don’t know if that’s true,” says Stern. “It seemed like a fun project, which it is.”
Frankly, I just don’t care about this. I don’t have a connection to Porky’s. I’ve never watched the film, and I probably never will…having read what others say about it, though, I don’t see any reason for this thing to be remade.
