    Universal will remake the 1977 hockey comedy, Slap Shot, which starred the late Paul Newman and Michael Ontkean as hockey players for the minor league franchise, The Charlestown Chiefs. Newman played a late-years player and coach of the team who turns the team into a troupe of fighting goons in order to rev up interest for the team's move to another market.

    Dean Parisot, who helmed Fun with Dick and Jane, Galaxy Quest and The Appointment of Dennis Jennings, the short film for which he won an Academy Award in 1988, will direct the redo.
