The ‘90s are coming at us strong with a goal to make their presence felt again in the 2000s. And nope, we’re not talking about the fashion statements getting modern revivals and about the Backstreet Boys and the Spice Girls reuniting. Finally, some of our favorite flicks are getting a second (or third) shot both in the big screen and the boob tube! Below, the classic film titles we can't wait to see again.
The movie that put the names of Ryan Philippe, Sarah Michelle Gellar, and Reese Witherspoon on the map is now getting its own slot on primetime television. The plot is set 16 years after Sebastian Valmont's death and will tell the story of Bash Casey, the son of the characters played in the film by Phillippe and Witherspoon. We're guessing it will have some sort of Gossip Girl vibe for an older audience.
Nicholas Sparks’ bestselling novel is currently in the works for a TV series! Finally something of true love and romance to binge-watch. No one has been cast to play the roles of Allie and Noah so far, but we already have our guesses.
BEAUTY AND THE BEAST
Following the success of Cinderella, Maleficent, Alice and Wonderland; everyone is now looking forward to the live action telling of the classic Beauty and the Beast. To be honest, a huge chunk of why we're crazy excited is because Emma Watson and Dan Stevens are on board as the lead. We cannot wait for 2017!
We hear Mulan is also slated to have a live action telling, but is at the bottom half of the list. Please, please allow this to push through! And Aladdin, too!
BRIDGET JONES'S DIARY
The working title for the third Bridget Jones movie is Bridget Jones’s Baby. Lead stars Renée Zellweger and Colin Firth will be reprising their roles as Bridget Jones and Mark Darcy; but unfortunately, Hugh Grant will not be making a comeback.
Your favorite Angelina Jolie film is getting a third movie! Paramount Pictures and Warner Bros. will produce the movie together, but no one has been cast to play the new Lara Croft, yet.
Dibs on Pink Ranger! Lionsgate has greenlit the movie reboot of Power Rangers. Expect it on cinemas by January 2017.
After 20 years since the movie that caused our board game imaginations to go wild, Jumanji is now ripe for a remake. Although Robin Williams sadly won't be able to reprise his role, maybe Kirsten Dunst can agree on a cameo as an older and wiser Bonnie Hunt. The release date is Christmas 2016!
Witching hour is just around the corner as we are in the midst of Halloween, but for those of you planning on a staycation, we suggest you watch The Craft to prepare yourself for the remake. Sony Pictures is already working on the new script and we're really excited to know which young stars they'll be casting to play the four witches. Millennials, for sure.
SHE'S ALL THAT
A throwback teen flick is coming our way! The movie that introduced us to Fredie Prinze Jr., Rachael Leigh Cooke, and the late Paul Walker is being re-cooked.
We don’t think there would be an end to our fascination with Egyptian mummies. Word on the streets is that the next film will be shot in the Iraqi dessert.
If we were amazed as kids with the Ghostbusters' ghost-zapping guns, we can only imagine where today's technology and creative minds can take us.
While we wait for these to come to life, how about watching the original films first? Happy Weekend!
