MGM is backing a remake of the 1980s musical Fame with producer Mark Canton (300) and Lakeshore Entertainment. The $25 million remake is slated for a summer 2008 release. MGM says it has a writer and director for the project, but has not revealed who they are. Casting is not yet underway. The original starred Irene Cara and Debbie Allen and launched a TV series and stage show. MGM says the remake will be an updated version, but retain many of the musical elements and songs from the original.

Great. Yet another mindless, unimaginative, lazy remake of a tv show. Hollywood doesn’t deserve my 10 bucks.
