Jon M. Chu certainly likes his 80s cartoons. The director of G.I. Joe: Retaliation spent over a year developing a Masters of the Universe movie before stepping aside to concentrate on G.I. Joe 3, and now it's been announced that he's attached himself to another Hasbro / Marvel / Sunbow Productions series in Jem and the Holograms.
Created by Christy Marx, the series premiered in 1985 and revolved around a young girl called Jerrica Benton, who uses a holographic computer to transform her into the front-woman of the rock group Jem and the Holograms, who also happened to battle an evil girl group known as The Misfits.
The film adaptation is being produced by Scooter Braun, manager of Justin Bieber, who's headlined two of Chu's previous concert films in Never Say Never and Believe. Somewhat bizarrely, the producing team also includes Jason Blum, producer of Paranormal Activity, Insidious, The Purge and The Conjuring. »
