Amy Talkington wrote the script for the big-screen remake, which utilizes the original film's Romeo & Juliet storyline, as well as its clash between the early 1980s Los Angeles punk scene and suburban Valley culture.
The 1983 film starred Nicolas Cage and Deborah Foreman as star-crossed teen lovers Randy and Julie.
The remake will mark Moore's feature film directorial debut. He recently directed Broadway's "Shrek The Musical," which has been nominated for eight Tony Awards.
