'License to Drive'

The new take on the 1988 comedy will feature female leads.

Fox is hitting the road with a remake of the 1988 film License to Drive.

The original comedy, which starred Corey Haim, Corey Feldman and Heather Graham, followed a teen who, after failing his driver's test, decides to go for a night on the town with his friends. He takes his grandfather's prized 1972 Cadillac Sedan de Ville out on a joyride, which leads to all sorts of trouble. It was directed by Greg Beeman from a script by Neil Tolkin.

Alisha Brophy and Scott Miles (Girl Problems) are writing the new version, which will be rebooted with female leads. John Davis is producing.

Brophy and Miles, who most recently adapted Lionsgate’s White Girl Problems, are repped by Paradigm.
