This Live-Action ‘Jem’ Movie Sure Is Different Than We Thought It Would Be
As regular readers will no doubt be aware, ComicsAlliance's most anticipated movie of 2015/ever is the upcoming live-action adaptation of the greatest glam-rock cartoon of all time, Jem and the Holograms. That said, there are a lot of rumors floating around about changes made in the transition from the small screen to the big screen. Some of them are interesting (possibly recasting Eric Raymond as a woman), some of them are worrisome (making an entire Jem movie without the Misfits), but they're all pointing at a Jem that's pretty different from the one we're used to. We just weren't quite expecting it to be this different.
As you can see from the video above, it seems like the live-action Jem has recast its stars as men who sing in Italian. So... that's unexpected.
Oh wait, looks like I had my notes mixed up. Turns out that this is actually a new single from Italian performer Paolo Tuci, who has loaded up his suitably keytar-heavy video onto YouTube as "JEM and The Holograms (2015 Music Video) [Live Action Movie by Paolo Tuci] @jemthemovie," which is a slightly misleading title. Still, it's a pretty fun time. For those of you who don't speak Italian, I believe they are mostly singing about Rock 'n' Roll.
It should be noted that I also do not speak Italian.
