Watch: A Live-Action Movie Based On ‘Jem And The Holograms’ Is In The Works

From the Director of 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation'
'Jem the Movie' is Finally Happening!

For years there has been talk about adapting the 1980′s cartoon Jem and the Holograms into a live-action film. Back in the early 00s, it was rumored that the young popstars of the day (Britney Spears, Hilary Duff, Lindsay Lohan, etc.) might come together to star in a Jem movie but nothing ever came from that talk. Today we learn officially that plans are now in the works to bring Jem and the Holograms to life on the big screen … which is good news, for the most part. Scooter Braun, Justin Bieber‘s manager, has teamed up with director Jon M. Chu (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) and Jason Blum for this Jem movie project and they are putting out the call for creative help in putting together this movie. As much as I would love to see a Jem movie come to life, there is something very cheap and rushed-looking about this announcement. I’m also a bit concerned about 3 straight men coming together to make a Jem movie. But, it looks like this is the real deal. I do like that the plan is to take into consideration fan input sooo, that’s a positive. Click the video embed above to see this Jem movie announcement and see what you think. More »
