Classic teen flick Clueless is getting revamped with a remake.
Girls Trip writer Taylor Oliver has signed on to produce the remake along with Survivor’s Remorse and black-ish writer Marquita Robinson who will be writing the script, Variety reports.
Since Clueless focused on Generation X and their disconnect from generations before them, we are expecting that the remake will focus on Generation Z and their experience.
The original was released in 1995 and starred Alicia Silverstone, Stacey Dash, the late Brittany Murphy, Donald Faison and Paul Rudd. The storyline followed Cher, played by Silverstone, and her Beverly Hills crew as Cher played matchmaker for two teachers at her school and her new awkward friend Tai, played by Murphy, which didn’t go as she planned.
No word on whether the stars of original will be involved. With Dash being a full-on Trump supporter, she most likely won’t be getting a call.
Since Robinson and Oliver have a track record of working on black shows, let’s hope the cast will get a makeover that is full of melanin.
Clueless brought in $56 million at the box office over two decades ago while the film had a $12 million budget. Once this remake is released, it will hopefully top those numbers.
