Is Emory to Blame for the Demise of the Revenge of the Nerds Remake?

The 1984 film Revenge of the Nerds will not be remade after all. Filmmakers say that's because of "concern with the direction of the movie," but some bloggers think it might have to do with Emory University's decision not to let filmmakers shoot on the Emory campus. "When we get a request for a movie, we want something that is in lines with the mission and strategic plan of the University," a university spokesman explains to the Wheel. Making fun of nerds, apparently, is not part of Emory's strategic plan.
