Tired of Hollywood rebooting and remaking your fave flicks??
Emma Roberts don't care!
Julia Roberts' niece wants to make a Pretty Woman remake, so she can
steal breathe new life into her aunt's famous role.
Insiders say Em has been whoring herself out (metaphorically, of course) to producers, trying desperately to get someone, anyone to back her mastermind plan. According to the insider:
“Emma’s dream is to re-create Pretty Woman, it’s her ideal role. She’s been in talks with producers about the possibility of revisiting the character Julia made famous in a reboot of the original film."
The young starlet has two BIG reasons for wanting to star in the reboot.
Motive #1) She (and every other girl on the planet) LURVES the flick. Her pal says:
“Emma grew up loving Pretty Woman. It had sentimental meaning for her because her aunt was in it, and she can quote chunks of the movie off by heart."
Motive #2) She wants her aunt's fame. DUH!
The source explains:
"Critically and commercially it [the movie]was a big success too, Julia was up for awards, and Emma wants to be just as successful."
