In case you haven’t heard, the movie that was set in the 80s about a Valley Girl falling in love with a guy from Hollywood is getting a remake. And, yes, we’re a bit like, “why Hollywood, why?”
Read on to get the latest details on Valley Girl 2018…
CelebNMovies247.com has the latest on MGM’s Valley Girl musical remake which stars Chloe Bennet (ABC Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) and social media star Logan Paul have been cast.
We are hoping that the remake of Valley Girl will be somewhat good, because the original 1983 film that starred Nicholas Cage (Randy), Deborah Foreman (Julie), Elizabeth Daily (Loryn), Michael Bowen (Tommy) character has now been changed to Mickey, and Cameron Dye who played Fred.
Better Call Saul‘s Jessie Ennis and Ashleigh Murray (Riverdale) are also part of the cast. The remake which sounds like completely the same as the original movie is written by Amy Talkington with revisions by Marti Noxon. Matt Smith is producing and Cassidy Lange is overseeing the project on behalf of the studio.
The Rachel Lee Goldenberg directed remake will hit theaters in June. This time around, Jessica Rothe (Happy Death Day) takes on the role of Julie Richman (The Valley Girl) who falls for Randy (Josh Whitehouse), a guy from Hollywood. Logan Paul plays the Randy’s sidekick Mickey. Jessie Ennis, whose upcoming film slate include Life of the Party, will co-star as Stacey, Julie’s loyal best friend since childhood. Stacey is an anxious straight A-student who feels insecure in the popular crowd. Then, Ashleigh Murray, of the CW’s Riverdale, will play Loryn, a high-energy, spacey and boy-crazy popular girl.
The adaptation to the 1983 original follows Julie (Rothe), a sweet-natured San Fernando Valley girl whose world and values are rocked when she falls hard for Randy (Whitehouse), a punk rocker from Hollywood.
The original Suzi Brent (Michelle Meyrink) will have a cameo as Mrs H in the remake.
FUN FACT: Valley Girl was the first movie that Nicholas Coppola had his film debut as Nicholas Cage. Cage is Francis Ford Coppola nephew.
Here is the original trailer for the 1983 Valley Girl:
Valley Girl opens at theaters on Friday June 29 like for sure.
We’ll give Hollywood a second to think about remaking Robert Downey Jr’s first movie starring James Spader and Kim Richards. The movie is Tuff Turf, one of our favs growing up in the 80s. Come on Hollywood, lets see a remake of that.
