Remake Alert: Videodrome

Variety reports that Universal are set to remake David Cronenberg's Videodrome. The script is being written by Ehren Kruger, who wrote the screenplay to Scream 3, The Ring and um, Blood and Chocolate. Most interesting, perhaps, is this quote from Variety:

"The new picture will modernize the concept, infuse it with the possibilities of nano-technology and blow it up into a large-scale sci-fi action thriller."
Wait...what?! Colour me ignorant, but what does nano-technology have to do with television? Answers on a postcard, please, or in a comment below.
