You guys, director Jon M. Chu is going to make a live-action Jem and the Hologram movie with music producer Scooter Braun and Blumhouse Productions'.
I. Can't. Believe. It.
If you were a child of the 80s and wished your Transformers had pink hair, your cartoon and toy of choice would have been Jem and the Holograms, a crazy show about Jerrica Benton, a woman who runs an orphanage until her record executive father passes away and then discovers her father's supercomputer, Synergy. The program is able to create 100% realistic holograms through a pair of star-shaped earrings. Jerrica uses the earrings to transform herself into Jem, a pop star with bandmates and friends Aja, Shana, and Kimber. They raise money for the orphanage and battle an evil band known as the Misfits, whose lead singer, Pizzazz, despises Jem's success.
It sounds ridiculous. That's because it is. But one things for certain: Jem and the Holograms (and the Misfits) had some definite jams for kids of the 80s. If you head to jemthemovie.com, you can suggest casting, music, and what you want out of the movie using the hashtag #JemtheMovie through the Truly Outrageous project.
