A remake is reportedly in the works for the movie that had high school jocks Zack Siler (Prinze Jr.) and Dean Sampson (Paul Walker)
betting on the affections of the mousy Laney Boggs (Leigh Cook), according to The Wrap
. However, despite the trade publication's original story, a source close to Miramax tells ET that a deal has not been made. Spike Lee's wife, Tonya Lewis Lee, is said to have signed on to produce the teen rom-com under Tonik Productions, while Kenny Leon (Steel Magnolias
remake) is set to direct. According The Wrap
, the production will continue with "diverse leads in mind."
