“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.
