“Shall we play a game?”
The infamous line from the 1983 Cold War science fiction film WarGames that explored the early days of computer hacking, super computers and nuclear war, has been on MGM’s remake list for several years. By the 25th anniversary of the hit film, MGM released a direct-to-DVD sequel WarGames: The Dead Code, with talks of Leonardo DiCaprio possibly producing a remake.
In October 2015, Variety reports that MGM and interactive-video company Interlude have partnered to produce an interactive video that enables the viewer to control the outcome of the story. Dean Israelite was hired to direct a remake in 2014, but it is unclear if he is currently involved.
