‘Jem and the Holograms’ Movie Set for Oct. 2015 Release

Universal has set an Oct. 23, 2015 release date for its “Jem and the Holograms” movie, based on Hasbro’s cult 1980s animated series.

The musical fantasy reimagines Jem amid the current hyperlinked social media era in a story of a small-town girl going from underground video sensation to global superstar with her three sisters.

Jon M. Chu directed from Ryan Landels’ script with Aubrey Peeples as the lead. Stefanie Scott, Aurora Perrineau, Hayley Kiyoko, Ryan Guzman, Molly Ringwald and Juliette Lewis also star.

Producers are Chu, Jason Blum for Blumhouse Productions, Scooter Braun for SB Projects, Bennett Schneir, and Brian Goldner and Stephen Davis of Hasbro Studios.

It’s the second project to land on the date after Warner  Bros.-New Line’s “The Conjuring 2.”
