Jem and the Holograms

We Are The Misfits, Our Movie’s Better: Comics Alliance Pitches The Jem Movie, Part One

Last week, Hasbro announced that a movie based on Jem, the classic 1980s animated series about the glamour, glitter, fashion and fame of a rock star with a secret identity, was in development, helmed by G.I. Joe: Retaliation director Jon M. Chu. Since this is literally the most important thing that has ever happened, ComicsAlliance has cleared its schedule to allow for that most fun pastime for writers on the internet: Rampant speculation about what we would do if we were in charge of bringing Jem and the Holograms to the big screen.

Today, CA Senior Writer Chris Sims takes a shot at what he thinks a truly, truly, truly outrageous (whoa-oh-oh-oh) Jem movie should be.

‘Jem And The Holograms’ Creator Christy Marx Shut Out Of Live Action Movie

When the news broke about the announcement of a Jem and the Holograms movie, ComicsAlliance promised to stay on top of the story, and today, just in case the very idea of a Hollywood adaptation of Jem having its roles crowdsourced via Tumblr wasn't weird enough, we have now reached the second wrinkle of the story: Christy Marx, the original creator of Jem and the Holograms, won't be involved in the movie.

In a statement on her Facebook page that followed the announcement of Jon M. Chu's upcoming film, Marx revealed that she was informed of the movie a few days before the announcement and spoke to Chu about it, but that "no one in the entertainment arm of Hasbro wanted to talk to me, have me write for it, or at the very least consult on it."

There Is Going To Be A ‘Jem And The Holograms’ Movie And They Are Casting It On Tumblr

Am I awake right now? Is this whole world a just beautiful dream? Because folks, it is rare that news comes across the desk here at ComicsAlliance that literally brings me to tears of joy, and today, that has happened. I am openly weeping at my desk, because it has just been announced that there will be a Jem and the Holograms live-action feature film from G.I. Joe: Retaliation director Jon M. Chu. The beauty of the man who brought us last year's greatest cliff-side ninja fighting turning his attention to the glamour, glitter, fashion and fame ofJem is overwhelming.

The film is still in its extremely early stages of production, though, and has yet to be cast. In fact, Chu, along with Jason Blum and Scooter Braun are looking to cast the Holograms by having fans submit videos of themselves via Tumblr. And now you know why I wasn't sure if this was a dream. Check out the video announcement below!
