“Bones” and “Lie to Me” crossover?

Source: Entertainment Weekly

According to the Ausiello Files, the Fox Network might be planning a crossover event between “Bones” and “Lie to Me”. I think this is a clever idea. “Bones” will be heading into its 5th season while “Lie to Me” will start its 2nd season this Fall. What a great way to add ratings to both shows!

If you could concoct a crossover event (with Fox shows), what would it be? I think it would be interesting to work in “American Idol” with “Glee”. In Season 3 of “Bones”, former Idol contestant Ace Young, had a guest spot on the show. The episode title was “The Wannabe in the Weeds”, where Young played an aspiring singer. It was “American Idol” meets “Bones”, a pseudo crossover event if you will. At the end of the episode, Emily Deschanel who plays Dr. Temperance Brennan on “Bones”, sings “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” by Cyndi Lauper.

“Girls Just Want to Have Fun” remake

Remember that 80’s movie about a girl who wants to become a regular on “Dance TV”? Hint: Sarah Jessica Parker, Helen Hunt, and Shannen Doherty starred in the film.

That’s right! It’s “Girls Just Want to Have Fun”. Did Cyndi Lauper’s song just flash into your head? Well it definitely will as “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” is getting remade. An article from Variety.com reports that Miley Cyrus is rumored to be cast as the lead. I’m not sure how I feel about this yet. Sarah Jessica Parker has a background in dance, so I don’t know if the remake will concentrate on dancing or maybe they will try to spin it into a singing/karaoke competition.

Does this mean that Miley is leaving “Hannah Montana”? At least not for now, as the Disney Channel has renewed “Hannah Montana” for a fourth season. I mentioned in an earlier post, “Footloose” is also getting remade with Gossip Girl’s Chace Crawford. I wonder if this is the start of a trend – to remake 80’s “dance” themed movies. Will “Flashdance” be next? Only time will time…

For now…if it weren’t stuck in your head already…watch the original music video of “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” by Cyndi Lauper.
