Jem And The Holograms To Be Made Into A Movie
Producers Jon M Chu, Jason Blum and Scooter Braun want you to be part of the team
We never thought this day would arrive but here it is. There is a mighty big chance that Jem and the Holograms could be coming to a big screen near you. The popular 1980s Hasbro cartoon which featured Jerrica Benton, a music company owner and her secret rock star alter ego Jem, is being made into a live action movie by G.I. Joe: Retaliation director Jon M Chu.
Jon announced the news in a YouTube video with co-producers Blumhouse Production’s Jason Blum and music industry mogul Scooter Braun, whose client list includes Justin Bieber, Psy and Carly Rae Jepsen.
The gentlemen are crowd-sourcing talent to contribute to the film be it writing, music, designing costumes or even acting. "We want to invite you into our process to help us make our next movie, from writing music to designing costumes to even casting – whatever it is, we want you to be part of our creative team," Chu says in the video.
The script will be written by Ryan Landels and the story will be updated "for a whole new generation with themes of being true to who you are in a multitasking, hyperlinked social media age", the producers told The Hollywood Reporter.
Keen to get involved? The talent call is open to "the most talented girls and boys in the world". All you need to do is post a video, using the hashtag #JemTheMovie and tell the producers what you love about Jem. Now go forth and be truly outrageous.
