Jackass director Jeff Tremaine to helm Revenge of the Jocks, bro

Many directors have to endure a lot of shit before getting their big feature break. JACKASS director Jeff Tremaine is no different, except that he's literally had to endure shit. And pee. And ball sweat. And...

Fortunately, it sounds like REVENGE OF THE JOCKS, Tremaine's first narrative feature film, will be light on fecal matter. THR reports that the project will be like a backwards REVENGE OF THE NERDS:

"Three men, once popular high school jocks with their glory days behind them, find themselves forced to adapt to a world run by the geek and nerd crowd, some of whom are only too eager to unleash their own tormenting on the new underdog class."

REVENGE OF THE JOCKS will come written by Rami Cohen and Etan Cohen (MEN IN BLACK III, TROPIC THUNDER). Tremaine's production shingle Dickhouse Entertainment will also be involved. Heh. Dick.
Extra Tidbit: "Your bra bomb better work, nerdlinger."

I dunno. Bullying is a pretty big issue. My first inclination from the concept is that I'm supposed to root for the bully. Kind of a turn off, especially after thinking about the "It Gets Better" video from Pixar.

Sounds funny. I love Revenge of the Nerds and the Jackass movies are some of my favorite movies of all time, so this is a win win for me.

Sounds Funny

Jackass 2 and Tropic Thunder are two of my favorite comedies of all time. And when I was a kid I practically lived by the Revenge of the Nerds movies (even the horrible made-for-TV sequels.)

There's absolutely a way to do this right. Be both hilarious and endearing. Not have it suck in an 'American Pie' kind of way. And these are probably the guys to do it.

So, a bunch of douchey popular jocks who used to torment poor nerdy kids who buckled down and got high paying jobs through hard work, are getting revenge on those nerds for having successful careers by bullying them after they were already being bullied by those very jocks.
...Who are we rooting for here?

Good to see Etan Cohen can still get work after fucking up Men in Black III. As a fellow nerd/geek I think this premise is shit and basically Varsity Blues for the older generation.
