Jem and the Holograms

June 12, 2014 § Leave a comment

Up next in a line of 1980s toy franchise reboots, Hasbro is in production on a Jem and the Holograms live action movie.  I was never a fan of the Jem and the Holograms toys and cartoon, but my kid sister was; and being a fan of The Go-Gos, I found Jem a heckuva lot less annoying than Barbie.

Though Gen-X favorites Juliette Lewis and Molly Ringwald have joined the cast, this definitely looks like a project for a younger audience.  Fans of the original Jem must now be in their 30s, and few of them will want to check out a film featuring an emo-looking Jem directed by Jon Chu, the man behind Step Up 2: The Streets.

We’ll just have to wait and see if this new incarnation of Jem is truly, truly, truly outrageous.
