Adventures In Babysitting Remake Coming to Disney Channel

18 January 2015 12:02 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The 1987 comedy Adventures in Babysitting is getting a remake for the Disney Channel. I really liked the original Elizabeth Shue movie when I was younger, probably because I had a crush on her. This isn’t the first time that we’ve heard about the classic '80s flick being remade, though. Back in 2007 there was news that Raven Symone was going to star in the remake, but she’s no longer involved.

The movie follows the further adventures in babysitting and “recounts a dull evening for two competing babysitters, Jenny, played by Sabrina Carpenter (Girl Meets World), and Luci, played by Sofia Carson (Descendants), that turns into an adventure as they hunt for a kid who somehow snuck away.”

The original film was great, and there’s no way the remake will be as good. The first movie was rated PG-13 and contained the F-word twice, which is a »

Disney revives Adventures in Babysitting remake, cast revealed

10 January 2015 11:46 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in 2012, it was revealed that Disney was developing a remake to the cult 1987 comedy Adventures in Babysitting, with Raven-Symone and Miley Cyrus both linked to the film, which was going by the title of Further Adventures of Babysitting.

Given the complete lack of news since that point, it was assumed that the project had since fallen apart. However, Disney Channel has now announced that the remake is going ahead as a TV movie, and will star Sabrina Carpenter (Girl Meets World) and Sofia Carson (Austin & Ally) as two rival babysitters looking to track down a missing kid.

The original Adventures in Babysitting marked the directorial debut of Chris Columbus and saw Elisabeth Shue leading the cast. A success at both the box office and on home video, it spawned a 1989 TV pilot starring Jennifer Guthrie, which failed to get a series order.

Disney Channel Plans "Babysitting" Sequel

9 January 2015 3:22 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Sabrina Carpenter ("Girl Meets World") and Sofia Carson ("Disney's Descendants") are set to star in "Further Adventures in Babysitting," a Disney Channel original telemovie said to be "inspired by" Chris Columbus‘ 1987 comedy classic "Adventures in Babysitting" (aka. "A Night on the Town").

The original starred Elizabeth Shue as a babysitter who winds up getting into some crazy situations with three kids she’s supposed to be babysitting. While it performed only so-so at the box-office, it became a big hit on video and TV. These days it's seen as a seminal film of the decade like "The Goonies" and "The Breakfast Club".

An attempt was made back in 2007 to remake it with Raven Symone, that version thankfully fell through. This telemovie take will be penned by Tiffany Paulsen ("Nancy Drew") and deals with two competing babysitters who go on the hunt for a missing child.

Adventures in Babysitting getting a Disney Channel remake

9 January 2015 12:15 PM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

The 1987 comedy Adventures In Babysitting from Chris Columbus is one of those great movies you can watch every few years and still get a kick out of it. Elizabeth Shue starred as a babysitter who winds up getting more than she bargained for when she and the three kids she's babysitting venture off into some shenanigans that almost get them killed. There was a sort-of remake a few years ago with Jonah Hill called The Sitter; it’s essentially the same movie but with a lot more »

Get Ready: 'Further Adventures in Babysitting' Is Finally Coming

9 January 2015 5:20 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Chris Columbus' "Adventures in Babysitting" is one of those Disney movies that is really quite good but gets glossed over a lot of the time because it wasn't a big hit when it was released and the studio has never really gotten behind it since (although, somewhat surprisingly, a high definition 25th anniversary edition was released on Blu-ray). While a sequel or remake or something has been floated around over the past decade, with both Raven Symone and Miley Cyrus having been linked to the project, it looks like things are finally getting underway on a proper follow-up (according to AdWeek). That's right folks, coming soon to the Disney Channel is.... "Further Adventures in Babysitting."

Set to debut in 2016, almost 30 years after the original film was released (shortly after Michael Eisner and Jeffrey Katzenberg came to Disney and injected fresh blood and a new sensibility), "Further Adventures in Babysitting »

If you couldn't tell by all the listicles and jokes that hit your personal social media feed over the New Year Holiday, we are living in the future. Well, at least according to Back to the Future Part II. 2015 is the year Marty McFly must travel to with Doc in the DeLorean, insuring that his kids turn out okay. Along the way, he has a run in with Biff, a Sports Almanac, and a cool pair of self-lacing Nike sneakers. While a lot of things seen in Back to the Future Part II have not yet become a reality, we may finally be getting the much coveted Nike Power Laces this year! No, really!

Back in 2011, Nike actually realeased a screen accurate version of Marty McFly's future sneaks, which were called the Nike Mag and were produced in extremely limited qualities. They did not, however, feature the power laces. At the time, »
