Fox Atomic was a production label of film studio 20th Century Fox created in 2006 to generate comedy and genre films.[1]

In 2008, following overall disappointing results, Fox Atomic scaled back its production operations and shut down all marketing divisions.[2] In 2009, the label was shut down, with films in development transferred to other Fox labels.[1]

Canceled projects[edit]

In 2006, it was announced that Fox Atomic was going to make one of their launching movies a remake of the 1984 film Revenge of the Nerds. After two weeks of filming, an executive at Fox Atomic viewed the film's dailies and made the decision to stop production of the film.[3][4] The film's cancellation was also due to potential filming location Emory University refusing to lend its campus to the production.[5]
