Last month we brought you the news that Stuart Gillard would be helming a sequel to WarGames, 23 years after the original movie was released in 1983. Today, news has broke that Matt Lanter will be playing the lead role which we presume will be a different character to the one that Matthew Broderick played in the original.
For those who missed it the first time here is the plot info from Dark Horizons…
“The storyline follows a teenage hacker whose world gets turned upside after playing an online terrorist-attack simulator game against a government super-computer designed to profile potential terrorists. All hell breaks loose when Homeland Security is convinced that he’s a terrorist intent on disrupting
the fabric of society”.
Empire are also reporting that the title of the movie has changed to War Games: The Dead Code with filming set to begin in 11 days time.
