Well, it's clear the season of movie remakes is far from over. Don't ask me how Sony Pictures is going to manage this, but according to Deadline, the film studio and producer are planning to turn the classic 70s sitcom Good Times into a feature-length movie.

The good news is the writer they've commissioned for the project, , is well versed in remakes. His most recent credits include Wreck-It Ralph and Cedar Rapids.

Something else which inspires hope is that this remake won't bring the story of the Evans family raising their kids into the present day. The movie will be set in the 60s in order to add a politically charged element, given the Civil Rights Movement. Still, how you whip a five-year television series up into a 90 minute feature flick - without any of the original cast members - is beyond me.

What ya'll think?
