Valley Girl Remake: Like, Please Don't Do It. Totally
Word on the street is that MGM is planning to remake Valley Girl, a beloved if episodic rom-com from the great year of 1983. This can only be bad news. But it gets worse when you realize they're planning to remake it as a musical. From a June 2009 report that appeared on the excellent and under-read Pajiba:
The surprise here, however, is how they are "re-imagining" Valley Girl. They've hired Broadway director Jason Moore, who directed Avenue Q and Steel Magnolias on Broadway, as well as the Tony-nominated Broadway version of Shrek: The Musical.
