Common Boarding MGM’s ‘Cooley High’ Remake

19 July 2016 4:39 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Common has signed on to produce and star in MGM’s remake of coming-of-age drama “Cooley High” with DeVon Franklin and Tony Krantz also producing.

Seth Rosenfeld will write the script for the remake. The original film, released in 1975 by American International Pictures, was set in 1964 Chicago and focused on a pair of high school seniors who are best friends — played by Glynn Turman and Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs — during the final weeks of the school year.

Cooley High,” which had a $750,000 budget, was a major success with $13 million in domestic grosses. Tony Krantz’ father Steve Krantz was the producer with Michael Schultz directing from Eric Monte’s script.

Franklin will produce the remake through his Franklin Entertainment while Common produces under his Freedom Road Productions and Krantz through Flame Ventures. Drew Comins will executive produce for Flame Ventures along with Derek Dudley for Freedom Road.
