Just like everybody else in the world I take every opportunity to rag on Hollywood and its inability to do anything other than remakes and reboots. But, and this is a big Rob Kardashian-sized but: Jem and the Holograms is getting the live action movie treatment and I couldn’t possibly be more excited.
For those born after the 80s (or at least after VH1′s I Love the 80s brought the rest of us up to speed) Jem and the Holograms is an animated series about the utterly fabulous, and truly outrageous Jerrica Benton aka Jem. Using a holographic sentient AI called Synergy Jerrica transforms into the show’s titular rockstar to perform with her bandmates the Holograms. To put her into a 2014-context she’s the conceptual precursor to both Lady Gaga *and* Hannah Montana.
