This is some awesome news as we head into the end of the week – Jem and the Holograms is being made into a live action movie!
Jon M. Chu, who also directed Step Up 3D and Justin Bieber‘s Believe movie, is bringing the beloved 80s cartoon to life, he confirmed in a YouTube vid.
“The movie, without giving away too much, is a modern day, live action reinvention of the 1980s Hasbro classic cartoon Jem and the Holograms,” he says in the video.
Want to be in the film? You can! All you have to is upload a photo or video to the official website to be considered. How cool is that?
If you’re unfamiliar, Jem and The Holograms followed Jerrica Benton, and her alter ego, Jem, as she managed the Starlight Music Group and also moonlighted as the lead singer for the band. Check out a retro clip from the first ever episode below!
