Well that didn't take long -- 'Jem and the Holograms' has announced the four young actresses that will play the leading roles of Jem and her Hologram bandmates in the upcoming adaptation of the hit '80s cartoon, directed by 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' helmer Jon M. Chu. And although Chu and the production team previously mentioned that casting was open to anyone -- even unknowns -- the four stars are all established young actresses.
Jem and the Holograms
Of all the potential movie directors Jon M. Chu and producer Jason Blum could collaborate on, a live-action update on 'Jem and the Holograms' is literally the last thing we would have expected. The director of 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' and the producer of the 'Paranormal Activity' series are teaming up to adapt the '80s cartoon series/toy line for the modern age, and we couldn't be more baffled if we tried.
