Truly Outrageous News for Jem and the Holograms fans – A live action movie.
Hasbro, Jon M Chu (Director of GI Joe retaliation), Jason Blum (Blumhouse productions, maker of small budget large release films such as the Paranormal Activity Franchise) and Scooter Braun (Musical Talent Manager) are teaming up for an ambitious new movie project and they need YOUR help to do it. That movie is a live action Jem and the Holograms movie. You are probably already thinking “Okay, what’s the pitch? This is Kickstarter or some sort of crowd funding, right?”
Wrong. According to Mr. Chu, they don’t want your money. They want your talent. They want to use social media and crowd-sourcing not to finance the movie, but to produce it. That’s right, they want you to send in your videos of you singing, dancing, acting, your costuming skills and anything else.
You can hear the entire pitch in their youtube video that was released today;
Tapping into the fanbase like this is a bold move and it will be interesting to see where this goes. Aside from their video you can visit their website for more information at jemthemovie.com and don’t forget to stop by our forums to tell us what you think about this kind of project.
