‘Hot Tub Time Machine’ Director to Take You Back to ‘About Last Night’

It’s been two years since we heard from director Steve Pink, who brought us the pleasantly funny sleeper ‘Hot Tub Time Machine.’ Now Pink is in talks for his next film — and surprise, surprise, it’s a remake!

Yes, the man behind the camera for the silly — but at least original — ‘Time Machine’ is in talks to direct a reboot of ‘About Last Night,’ according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The original film, which came out in that ancient Mesozoic year 1986, starred Rob Lowe and Demi
Moore as young Chicago singles who get together, get naked, get serious, get heartbroken and get back together over the course of a year.

The twist on the new version is that it will feature an all-black cast, headed by Kevin Hart, Michael Ealy and Regina King. The new script, by ‘Bachelorette‘ writer Leslye Headland, is based (like the 1986 film) on David Mamet’s 1974 play, ‘Sexual Perversity in Chicago.’ The new film also has ‘Easy A’ writer/director Will Gluck in its corner as a producer.

Pink, who toiled for a while on screenplays like ‘Grosse Pointe Blank’ and ‘High Fidelity’ (and who is apparently John Cusack‘s go-to guy, since he starred in both of those and ‘Time Machine’), made his directorial debut in 2006 with ‘Accepted.’ He’s also in the running to direct ‘Bad Santa 2,’ which we frankly hope gets the go-ahead before ‘About Last Night.’

Sequel to one of the nastiest comedies of the past decade or probably pointless remake? It’s your call, Mr. Pink.
