St. Elmo's Fire Becomes TV Series?!

Recycling is meant for plastic, not '80s movies!

ABC has interest in an hourlong TV series based on the 1985 brat pack film St. Elmo's Fire.

For those of you who don't remember, the film was based on a group of college friends who had just graduated from Georgetown University and follows their journey into adulthood.

"More than anything, the movie evokes a feeling that doesn't go away," said Dan Bucatinsky, who will produce and pen the script. "The feeling of bonding with your friends who become your surrogate family."

"It's the feeling of that time in your life when everything is possible but you can't figure out how to make it possible," added executive producer Topher Grace.

Yes, THAT Topher Grace! As in that dude from That '70s Show.

The dramedy will use the film as a jumping off point and introduce six original characters, three boys and three girls.

Georgetown and St. Elmo's Bar & Restaurant will still remain the setting with a name change dubbing the hotspot, Elmo's Bar & Grill.

Woa! Let's not make waves!

"I feel it is time to re-create Friends in the hourlong genre and feel like this is the perfect opportunity," Grace contunied.

We were just warming up to the show till they decided to re-create Friends!!

What ever happened to fresh, original ideas?

P.S. Wonder if Demi would make a cameo?!

Probably not. But knowing the Ashton/Topher connection, they will totes try and get Potato Head a role in the show!

    Did you know……..
    *****
    St. Elmo's fire (also St. Elmo's light[1]) is an electrical weather phenomenon in which luminous plasma is created by a coronal discharge originating from a grounded object in an atmospheric electric field (such as those generated by thunderstorms or thunderstorms created by a volcanic explosion).

    I don't think the audience for the tv show is the same as the audience for the movie. So I don't know who will watch this……

    Re: Long Dong Connery – now, I believe you mentioned something about craving something salty? Think baseball for a minute while strip you down… one button at a time …. sliding the shirt off your shoulders, reaching down to your belt…. pulling the zipper down …. OH MY !

    Call it what it is…a "Friends" remake. Leave the brat-pack classic out of it! St. Elmo's Bar and Grill…really?

    The movie wasn't that great in the first place. The only decent actor was Mare Winningham.



  31. 31

    please don't do it. from then on you'll have young actors who'll get to claim they were rob lowe's, or emilio's, or demi's character, when only they should have that title. noooo way.



  32. 32

    great now perez is quoting i love you, man & acting like he is sooo the shit.



  33. 33

    Ick. Does no one have any original ideas anymore??



  34. 34

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOo



  35. 35

    Blah - the movie was pretty lame and cheesy but anything from the 80s is cool right now! At least back in the 80s TV was not clogged with reality crap like it is today!



  36. 36

    NNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  37. 37

    FUCK PLEASE NO!!!!!



  38. 38

    It's hilarious to me that Demi starred in that when Ashton was barely or not even born.
