Moviehole.net reported that MGM has announced a July start date for the sequel to 1983's hit War Games. War Games II: The Deadly Key is scheduled to shoot in Europe for a direct-to-DVD release sometime next year, the site reported.
War Games II centers on teenage computer whiz Cory Carpenter, who finds himself mistaken for a cyber-criminal while on a class trip to Europe. On the run with his beautiful classmate Anne and nerdy best pal Dale Darrow, Carpenter discovers that his supposed cyber-pal is really a government computer that's gone haywire and is setting in motion a plan for nuclear disaster.
None of the original film's stars, who included Matthew Broderick and Ally Sheedy, are expected to return.
