Jon M. Chu Set To Direct A JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS Movie

This is outrageous..truly outrageous! Anyone who grew up in the '80s should remember the cartoon, and after bringing inflicting a G.I. JOE sequel on us, Chu has set his sights on bringing Jem and her fellow Holograms to live action. More after the jump.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation director Jon M. Chu has signed on to bring another '80s Hasbro cartoon series to the big screen: Jem And The Holograms. The live action movie will be produced by Jason Blum (Insidious, Paranormal Activity) and Scooter Braun, and along with Chu they're asking for fan participation in the form of open auditions for actors, singers, dancers, costume designers -- basically like a Kickstarter campaign, but "instead of money, we want your creativity". Here's the announcement vid, and a little trip down memory lane too.

When I saw Scooter Braun's name.

C'mon guys, little girls needed heroes too! This was actually a pretty quality made cartoon. Not saying I'll see the movie (especially with Chu at the helm).

Some things shouldn't be. This is one of them.
Bl00dwerK - 3/20/2014, 11:16 AM
So when do we get a M.A.S.K. movie?
ThePowerCosmic - 3/20/2014, 11:16 AM

"Come on we are getting this before a He Man, Thunder Cats, or Silver Hawks............"

I understand what Ror is saying too, but, I'm with you Joe. I'd much rather see either one of those as well as TigerSharks and C.O.P.S..
ThePowerCosmic - 3/20/2014, 11:18 AM
I'd see a Gem movie if David Fincher was directing it.

Cuz ya' know if it was dark and gritty it'd be good!
rockerdude22 - 3/20/2014, 11:19 AM
Oh come on, where's our Voltron and/or Thundercats movie?
ThePowerCosmic - 3/20/2014, 11:19 AM

No, but this one's really stretching it.
Enphlieuwince - 3/20/2014, 11:20 AM
Hell, I'd rather see a Captain Planet movie before this. Lol...
wookiefit - 3/20/2014, 11:20 AM
So I'm assuming it will be like the "Josie and the Pussycats" movie and they'll get some former Disney/Nick star to sing and do a music tie in. Whatever! How about a good GI Joe movie 1st? How about that?
Enphlieuwince - 3/20/2014, 11:21 AM

Oh, yeah. How could I forget Voltron or Robotech?

The 80's - where every cartoon character had to be in a band or fighting someone with a skull face.
TheClemster - 3/20/2014, 11:26 AM


we have the potential with some of the users of this thread to make a convincing cast

Guess which one is Ror :)
Brainiac13 - 3/20/2014, 11:26 AM
Love the 80s!!!!!

write33 - 3/20/2014, 11:26 AM

TheClemster - 3/20/2014, 11:28 AM

CaptShipwreck - 3/20/2014, 11:29 AM
This news is truly truly outrageous
YoungThanos - 3/20/2014, 11:29 AM
"Should do "The Inhumanoids" instead."

I agree.
jlabatman - 3/20/2014, 11:30 AM
C'mon, 80s punk rock bitches or whatever they were need love too!

BATMANx - 3/20/2014, 11:30 AM
I think us men shouldn't talk about this topic.. this cartoon is for girls and women who grew up in the 80s

Too bad I don't give a shit about the movie, but as a project, the idea of bringing together talent from all around the world in a kickstarter sort of way is interesting. I wonder how they'll work their way around the whole contractual aspects, though
wookiefit - 3/20/2014, 11:31 AM
@ Clem

I'm sure there is a joke in there somewhere, I'm just to tired to figure it out right now.
TheClemster - 3/20/2014, 11:33 AM
@ wookie


you lazy ass
fettastic - 3/20/2014, 11:33 AM
What the [frick] is it with chicks and pink? Literally every single [frick]ing toy every made for a little girl IS PINK! Well pink and purple. Do little girls only like those 2 [frick]ing colors? When I walk by the girls toy aisle I'm just blinded by pink! It doesn't make any [frick]ing sense.

SO GLAD I had a little boy because if I had to buy little girl toys I would [frick]ing kill myself.
fettastic - 3/20/2014, 11:34 AM
I think them saying "Hey internet, you make the [frick]ing movie!" is their way of avoiding suicide.
