28 May 2009 7:48 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Twentieth Century Fox and Lakeshore Entertainment will remake the 1985 feature Girls Just Want to Have Fun, a teen comedy originally written by Amy Spies. Premise of the first film followed 'Janey' (Sarah Jessica Parker), an army brat thrilled to be transferred to the home of her favorite dance show Dance TV. Janey and her new friend 'Lynne' (Helen Hunt) get excited when the show announces an audition for new talent. Defying her strict and conservative dad, Janey auditions and gets into the finals, paired up with 'Jeff' (Lee Montgomery) who catches the eye of scheming rich girl 'Natalie' (Holly Gagnier). Jeff reluctantly auditions because of the opportunity presented by his entrepreneurial best friend 'Drew' (Jonathan Silverman). Despite her father's objections and Natalie's manipulations, Janey is determined to win it all. A young Shannen "90210" Doherty co-stars in the film as Jeff's younger sister, with an uncredited Gina Gershon also appearing as a dancer. »
