That's right, a 'Mannequin' remake is on its way!

01.08.2010

MANNEQUIN, the 1987 tale of boy meets inanimate object with boobs is being brought back to life.

The newly relaunched Gladden Entertainment are the ones responsible for this project.

Gladden produced movies such as THE FABULOUS BAKER BOYS, WEEKEND AT BERNIE'S, and that Christian Slater gem GLEAMING THE CUBE. The company wants to modernize the plot and are looking to cast some "TWILIGHT-esque" kiddos in the lead. Galdden are said to be in early talks with studios, and looking for a writer.

Hmmm...I wonder if instead of Andrew McCarthy they will have someone like Miley Cyrus as an Abercrombie & Fitch employee, and she falls in love with one of the sparkly shirtless mannequins. Hey, it's possible.

I won't lie though, I am a sucker for cheesy ass 80's movies. MANNEQUIN wasn't bad on a Sunday when I was sick watching TBS. My only hope is that it has cheesy music and a fabulous replacement for Meshach Taylor.

Extra Tidbit: I miss G.W. Bailey but I'm not really interested in watching THE CLOSER.

Wasn't it already remade as LARS AND THE REAL GIRL? No way they could even get near that in terms of drama or charm.

I really liked the original, but a remake? Not necessary! The sequel was bad enough!

Considering modern-day Hollywood's obsession with Botox, how will we know when the mannequin transforms from shop-window dummy to actress?

Thank God. I've been getting sick of people constantly demanding for this to happen.

What the F

This is so wrong. Why do we need a remake for Mannequin. I don't really remember the movie when i was a kid, but was it really that good?

just when you think theyve reached the most unneeded, unwanted, most ridiculous idea for a remake, they throw us a curve ball

I just joked about this 2 weeks ago

I literally said sarcastically, "Yeah, and they're probably going to remake MANNEQUIN real soon. That's an undeserved classic that needs an update."
