Howard Stern has seen a hole in the movie market and now he wants to fill that hole. The greatest radio host of our time and his production company are developing modern-day remakes of Porky's and Rock 'N' Roll High School. Stern told Daily Variety, "I think I represent what National Lampoon once meant to the teen audience. I'm trying to present something different." In 1981, Porky's grossed more than $105 million on a measly $4 million dollar budget, and spawned Porky's 2 and Porky's 3. Both remakes will be released under the Howard Stern Presents banner, via Arclight films which is run by former Dimension Films honcho Dan Gross. Meanwhile, Robin Quivers is figuring out which street corner she will panhandle from once Howard goes off the air.
