According to Virgin.net, Val Kilmer is returning to one of his early comedic roles for a sequel to 1985's Real Genius.

In the original Kilmer starred as Chris Knight, one of several young prodigies who discover their class project in lasers is actually a weapon to be used by the government. If you grew up in the '80s and had HBO, odds are that you've seen it -- several times.

According to the story, no shooting schedule has been announced. Nor is there a mention of the sequel's storyline.

As big fans of this movie (and Kilmer's other early comedy work like Top Secret), we're eagerly anticipating this one. Especially if it also brings back Jon Gries (a.k.a. Uncle Rico from Napoleon Dynamite) as the reclusive nerd.
