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!
