Truly, truly outrageous...
Coming Soon reports that Jon M. Chu (G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Justin Bieber: Never Say Never) is set to direct a feature film based on Jem and the Holograms. The film will be produced by Jason Blum and Scooter Braun. You can see an announcement video below, which asks for fan submissions of audition material (which you can provide here).
The series was created by Christy Marx along with Hasbro, Marvel and Sunbow Productions. It began airing in 1985 for three seasons. It followed Jem, the musical alter ego of Jerrica Benton. With the help of a holographic computer called Synergy, she performed huge rock concerts with her friends.
