Juliette Lewis And Molly Ringwald Join JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS

Juliette Lewis And Molly Ringwald Join JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS

The live action adaptation of the '80s animated series has gained a genuine '80s icon in Pretty In Pink actress Molly Ringwald. Plus, they'll have some genuine rock-chick cred with musician Juliette Lewis signing on too. More details after the jump.

Molly Ringwald and Juliette Lewis

According to the LA Times, Jon M. Chu (Step Up 2, Justin Bieber: Never Say Never) has nabbed both Molly Ringwald and Juliette Lewis to star in his live action Jem And The Holograms movie. Those of a certain age will probably remember Ringwald from the likes of Pretty in Pink, Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, and the tv miniseries take on Stephen King's The Stand. While Lewis has appeared in Cape Fear, Kaliforna, Natural Born Killers among many others; and she also fronted the rock band "Juliette and the Licks" for years before moving on to pursue solo work. The site don't reveal who they'll play in the movie but since none of "The Misfits" (the bad guys) have been cast yet, we'll assume it'll be a couple of them. The movie will be produced by Jason Blum (Insidious, Paranormal Activity) and Scooter Braun.

Why is this movie being made?
Mercwitham0uth - 5/20/2014, 7:21 PM
This sounds like a shit idea for a film.
Lozzy - 5/20/2014, 7:22 PM
Clearly we are not the target demographic for this film.
Mrcool210 - 5/20/2014, 7:22 PM
Molly Ringwald? really? she has been relevant? she hasn't been relevant in what? 20 years?
Comedian03 - 5/20/2014, 7:23 PM
I dream of a CBM.com where news about this movie doesn't get posted.

Is there actually a single person on this site excited for this movie? Is there ANY legitimate reason to post this garbage other than to get hits and make a few bucks? I think I can probably figure out the answer for myself.

Why did you not mention that Lewis played Audrey in National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation??
YoungThanos - 5/20/2014, 7:29 PM
.....Well it's still sounds better than Singer's cr...sorry I'm lying.
RorMachine - 5/20/2014, 7:34 PM
Comedian03, if this was Thundercats or He-Man would that be ok? Grow the [frick] up
sKeemAn - 5/20/2014, 7:35 PM
They are actually going to make this. Maybe I'll get some nostalgia from all these 80's chicks.
SuperCat - 5/20/2014, 7:38 PM
Someone will see this.
pointman - 5/20/2014, 7:40 PM
Sounds like another Josie and the pussycats. Sounds like the studios need another tax write off.
batz11 - 5/20/2014, 7:41 PM

JoeMomma29 - 5/20/2014, 7:53 PM

Molly Ringwald used to be so [frick]ing hot. Who am I kidding, I'd still make a run at her.
blackandyellow - 5/20/2014, 8:06 PM
Joe, you'd still throw it in her meat wallet. Don't lie to yourself.
MexicanSexyman - 5/20/2014, 8:17 PM
@V8ER, the same reason why the Avengers, TDK trilogy, the LOTR and the Hobbit trilogies, Starwars, and so on and so forth exists.
CharlesLord - 5/20/2014, 8:18 PM

JoeMomma29 - 5/20/2014, 8:18 PM

V8ER - 5/20/2014, 8:24 PM
@TheMexicanSuperman Valid point. Everyone has their movies they like. Sorry if I offended.
JoeMomma29 - 5/20/2014, 8:25 PM
@ BlackadYellow

Do I get to use any Horsy Sauce??????? You know like at Arby's.
beto - 5/20/2014, 8:28 PM
I just came here for the "why is this happening?" comments.
beto - 5/20/2014, 8:29 PM
Well, for that and for the Supercat's gifs but since I can't see any of those I guess I'll look for a better thread
aRandomSinisterClone - 5/20/2014, 8:29 PM
@comedian, agree. this shit only exists for advertising revenue. there are 14 ads on this page alone.
pillsLA - 5/20/2014, 8:52 PM
Who's next...Mathew Broderick....jesus.
Ranger14 - 5/20/2014, 8:54 PM
Using the same logic that many use here...

"Why don't you wait and watch the movie before you jump on it and start hating!" (or least wait for trailers, etc.) :-p That contention doesn't always work so well when the situation is flipped around does it?

VISIONaryNPa - 5/20/2014, 8:57 PM
grosss...Juliette Lewis is ugly as hell.. she's really annoying.. this may be a shitty train-wreck..
RextheKing - 5/20/2014, 9:03 PM
If you guys truley aren't interested in this film as you say you are they why you waste your time coming here and then go on to comment?
spideymania26 - 5/20/2014, 9:11 PM
Hey ror, why don't you chill the [frick] out, everytime I'm on this site you're trying to crack the whip, get off your high horse and give it a [frick]ing rest
spideymania26 - 5/20/2014, 9:12 PM
and ya know what does give a shit about Jem and the Holograms
OrionPax - 5/20/2014, 9:16 PM
@blackandyellow Meat Wallet!???!!!!It's been WAY too long since I've heard that!Thank you.I've always been partial to Ham Pocket as well
Comedian03 - 5/20/2014, 9:17 PM
Awww don't get all butthurt just cause someone criticized the material you posted. If you can't handle criticism then you're in the wrong business, and sure as hell on the wrong site.
OrionPax - 5/20/2014, 9:17 PM
And I truly think that a Jem movie is an odd idea.....but hey who knows?Might be good
Comedian03 - 5/20/2014, 9:18 PM
Money money money money

OrionPax - 5/20/2014, 9:19 PM
Juliette was hot,but now it looks like she has a case of Willem Defoe face
Humperdink - 5/20/2014, 9:20 PM
I hope the music is contagious.
