Truly Outrageous? Jem And The Holograms Movie!! (Video)
“#JemTheMovie is happening & we want YOU to be part of it!” ~ Twitter Tweeted
Jem and the Holograms fans? Get excited! Because, Jon M. Chu, director of Hasbro’s other big franchise movie, G.I. Joe: Retaliation – is making a live-action movie of the hit 1980s cartoon! He announced the new project in a YouTube video very recently, telling fans:
“The movie, without giving away too much, is a modern day, live action reinvention of the 1980s Hasbro classic cartoon.”
The Outrageous Scoop..
The film will be produced, in part, by Justin Bieber‘s mentor Scooter Braun. Director Chu did not give away too much about the new Jem movie, although he did share one detail: He wants fans to contribute their ideas via social media! There are multiple ways fans can help contribute to the creative process. They can upload a photo or video to Tumblr – or even submit themselves as a casting possibility for the film!
The movie production already has its own Twitter Account: Here.
If you were/are a MAJOR ‘Jem and the Holograms‘ Fan – then surely you are already VERY EXCITED by now!
Growing up with a little sister as I did (and many girlfriends with little sisters, too) – I remember this cartoon being on a lot. And also, now that I realize that Hasbro makes Jem, it makes more sense why it was always on the same television schedules as my FAVOURITE cartoons as a kid: G.I. Joe and Transformers. It even makes more sense why Jon Chu had directed G.I. Joe and will be directing the Jem movie as well. (I wonder how he missed out on Transformers..but I bet that’s another story.)
The last thing that comes to mind, especially for the real fans reading this is:
I hope they don’t SCREW IT UP – and make a terrible live-action rendition of a cult classic! *Gasp*
Because, that would be more than a little raging, my friends. No.. that would be truly outrageous. Truly, truly, TRULY Outrageous, even!
