Twentieth Century Fox and Lakeshore Entertainment are mounting a remake of “Girls Just Want to Have Fun,” the 1985 teen comedy that starred Helen Hunt and Sarah Jessica Parker.
The comedy will be developed as a potential star vehicle for Miley Cyrus. Lakeshore’s Gary Lucchesi and Tom Rosenberg will produce.
The studio has set Michelle Morgan to write a new version of the film, which centered on two girls who share a passion for dancing and the hit show “Dance TV.”
Morgan just scripted “Is He the One,” a Todd Garner-produced romantic comedy for Fox, and “Imogene” for Anonymous Content.
She’s repped by UTA and Kaplan/Perrone.
