    HOLLYWOOD: Just two months after announcing his resignation from the top-rated non-sports, non-rerun television show of the summer season, King of All Media Howard Stern has revealed his plans to reboot a favorite film franchise from the 1980s.

    "I've always loved the 'Weekend at Bernie's' movies," the SiriusXM star says in an exclusive interview. "They're almost sacred to me. But my wife [model, actress, author, and kitten rights activist Beth Stern] and I had been looking for a project to do together for some time now. So I was beside myself when the franchise rights became available [in 2013]. We really feel we can bring something fresh and new to the originals."

    The reboot, which 112 Productions is currently calling "Weekend at Sternie's," has already begun filming in the Hamptons and in New York City, according to Stern.

    "In the movie, my wife finds out I'm trying to kill her after learning she wants to adopt our 27th cat," Stern laughs. "But I've instructed Ronnie the Limo Driver not to kill her any time I'm around. Well, lo and behold, I drop dead -- but only Beth knows it! So to save her own life, she has to drag my fat ass around and pretend I'm still alive. I can't really say much more, because I don't want to give it away, but let's just say we're being as faithful to the originals as possible."

    In this hilarious gallery, we compare stills from the original films with exclusive photos from the set of Stern's reboot.

    Sounds like it's going to be about his radio career the last 7-8 years.

    Damn yoooou, @Benjamen, you always fool me! :nag:

    You had me going there for a few seconds. It just goes to show how bizarre the Stern universe has become.

    Or how stupid I am. One or the other.

    I get more laughs from one Benjamen post than I do from one year of THSS.

    Shame on you! Beth as an actress in a real movie production should have been your clue!

    Yes! Benjamen's writing and production is far more comical than anything on the Stern show. I mean, the Yoda book satire? He's so good!!
