Craig Moss and Steve Schoenburg have been hired to write the remake of 1982's "Porky's," which Howard Stern is executive producing along with Larry Levinson. Dan Gross and Steve Squillante are producing.

"Porky's," released in 1982, starred Dan Monahan, Mark Herrier, Wyatt Knight, Roger Wilson and then-newcomer Kim Cattrall. The film, which followed a group of high school boys on their mostly sexual misadventures, was a risque release for its time and a big hit at the boxoffice. "Porky's" cost $4 million to make but brought in more than $105 million and spawned two sequels, "Porky's II: The Next Day" and "Porky's Revenge."

Sources said the plan is to keep the redo true to the original while also contemporizing it to include more set pieces -- though not all of them will necessarily be in the gross-out mode.

Moss and Schoenburg have set up several projects, including "Night Girls" at Regency Entertainment, "Sissymarys" at Universal, "Short Hills" at Atmosphere and "Back to College" with National Lampoon.

They are repped by Benderspink and Colden, McKuin & Frankel.
