What Do You Think About a Remake of Fame?

My Recast challenges are all in good fun, but here's a film that actually will be recast in the near future: Fame. MGM COO Rick Sands has said:

"We'll update it, (but) we'll still keep some of the songs. The script is being written right now, but we are keeping it under wraps. There will be a strong musical component, though."

Groan. I'm imagining Step Up but with singing, too. And where will they get these singers? My money says they'll tap the ever-growing "American Idol" reject pile. But hey, maybe I'm being too cynical and it will be super awesome. What do you think about a Fame remake?

I picked the Bad Idea option but not because "you can't beat the first Fame." The first "Fame" SUCKED!!!!! How many bad actors can you put in leotards? Too many, apparently.

I confess I've never seen Fame (or Flashdance - I know, I'm like some kind of alien...), but I just cringe when I hear about yet another remake of some movie being proposed. Does Hollywood have no new ideas?

I was a HUGE fan of the TV show Fame, and last year MGM released Season 1 on DVD. They did a terrible job of it - the DVDs weren't even labeled correctly! And they haven't released any of the subsequent seasons (all of which I am prepared to buy). I wish MGM would put some money towards releasing all the DVDs instead of wasting it on some craptastic remake of the movie. Or the musical. Or whatever they're doing.

No this has "bad idea" written all over it...when will they learn that most remakes are a bad idea? esp ones that involve singing & dancing. Fame is a classic.

i have this conclusion that producers are trying to make a movie out of every broadway musical EVER. Even though i think this was a movie first? I hope Sanjaya gets the lead though. ****"Everything in life is only for now."-Avenue Q****

Maybe they'll dig into the "Grease" reject pile as well. Some things just shouldn't be tampered with; this is one.
