1970s Us sitcom Good Times is to be remade as a feature film.

The CBS family comedy originally aired six seasons between 1974 and 1979.

Good Times focused on working-class couple James (John Amos) and Florida Evans (Esther Rolle) as they raised three children in a Chicago housing project.

The show is perhaps best remembered for breakout character Jj (Jimmie Walker), who became notorious for his use of the catchphrase, "Dy-no-mite!"

Sony Pictures is developing the new big-screen adaptation with producer Scott Rudin (The Social Network), Deadline reports.

Wreck-It Ralph scribe Phil Johnston has been hired to pen the film, which will be a period piece set in the 1960s.
