Meet the cast of Jon Chu's Jem and the Holograms movie

Apr. 24, 2014by: Alex Maidy

Jon Chu's fast developing JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS movie has now cast the band members for the live action adaptation of the 1980s cartoon. Mere weeks after being announced, the musical film has already found a lead singer and supporting players in the form of four up and coming young actresses led by Aubrey Peeples.

Peeples is best known for her role on the ABC musical series NASHVILLE as well as other TV roles. The rest of the band will be played by Stefanie Scott as Kimber, Jem's sister, Aurora Perrineau as Shana, and Hayley Kiyoko as Aja. All of the actresses are currently appearing on TV series and this will mark their major studio debuts.

We also have a plot for JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS:

Ryan Landels wrote the script, which, per the producers, centers on an orphaned teenage girl who becomes an online recording sensation. She and her sisters embark on a music-driven scavenger hunt -- one that sends them on an adventure across Los Angeles in an attempt to unlock a final message left by her father.

JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS is being "reimagined" for a new generation so while we can expect nods to the cartoon, I would imagine the music will all be contemporary, possibly with some updated tunes based on those from the series. Chu and his production team have been taking fan input for the design of the TV series which may make JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS a multi-platform and somewhat interactive production, likely the first in many to follow.

JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS has no release date but expect to see it sometime next year or possibly later this year. Below is the first official teaser image from the production, courtesy of AMC Movie News.

Wow. This film may tank just as hard as Josie & the pussycats. This was a cartoon of the 80's and an awful one at that! I doubt anyone will see this pile of shit in the making. Aubrey peeples sucks on that nashville show, and IMO she is a shit actress and isn't attractive to say the least.

I'm surprised they're not going for big-name pop stars like Katy Perry or Taylor Swift but I'll wait and see. And they better keep that Jem theme song. It'll be outrageous!

neither. But if you change the race of Cyborg to asian in the upcoming Batman vs. Superman movie, then maybe people might be upset.

Sweet. This is totally a better idea than a He-Man movie. Yeah. A movie about Jem. I've been pining away for this to get made for decades

Fair point, that would get me to watch this. Doubt that the target audience (12 year old girls) would be on the same page though.
