Live-Action 'Jem And The Holograms' Movie Headed To Big Screen

Showtime, Synergy!! 

We're way too excited about this!

A live-action version of the 1980's animated TV hit Jem and The Holograms is coming to the big screen!!

Check out the video announcement from director Jon M. Chu and producers Jason Blum and Scooter Braun!

From The Hollywood Reporter:

Chu, Blum and Braun made the announcement Thursday on YouTube where they revealed they are making a modern day live action reinvention of the cartoon.

They also turned to fans of the show and toyline to help writing music, designing costumes and even casting.

The cartoon ran from 1985 to 1988 and told the adventures of Jerrica Benton and her alter-ego, Jem, a singer who fronted the band called The Holograms. Ironically, the show was produced with the involvement of Marvel Productions, which were hoping to replicate the success of G.I. Joe.

According to the producers, the new Jem is being reimagined “for a whole new generation with themes of being true to who you are in a multitasking, hyperlinked social-media age.”

Ryan Lendels wrote the script which, per the producers, centers on an orphaned teenage girl who becomes an online recording sensation. She and her sisters embark on a music-driven scavenger hunt -- one that sends them on an adventure across Los Angeles in an attempt to unlock a final message left by her father.

Okay, so it may have been too much to ask that we get some 1980's glam pop-punk realness, but that doesn't mean a modernized Jem can't be just as fun!

Just don't forget that the real reason Jem works is The Misfits. ("We are The Misfits! Our songs are better!"...and they kinda were.) 

And don't forget Synergy! And Rio two-timing Jem and Jerrica and both of them apparently being cool with it!

Are you excited for a live-action Jem and the Holograms, Instincters?


I'm super excited hahaha I learned English singing to jem and the holograms music. Maybe I should submit myself...hmmmmm

Hannah Montana was the modern day Jem.  I like the idea of an orphaned teenage girl... I remember many on the show, but Laura Holloway (the one that got mixed up with drugs) and also, oh what was the blonde girl who formed a band with some of the Starlight Foundation teens?  If they get it right, might be interesting.

....the movie is being put together by three immature morons who probably have never even watched the show themselves. If they have, it would be a total shock. This is disgraceful, and it's going to totally ruin a LOT of people's childhoods.

I bet u wouldn't have the balls to say that in person. Digital confidence is weak and a waist of time. Besides those who bully or say mean crap online show lack of security and usually are being bullied in person.........shows over synergy HAHAHAHAHA. PPPPPPPPP

Please be true. Please, please be true. This is a great way to bridge my childhood to that of my daughter's. I lovem and the Holograms!

This is truly outrageous. Truly, truly, truly outrageous.

This is a nightmare!!! I love Jem but they are changing the story completely..  ;( 

Oh my JEM !!!!!! Sooooooo exited !!! Cannot  WAIT . I   am SCREAMING AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!

Now where is the live action Equestria Girls?
