‘Girls Just Want’ to get remade

Michelle Morgan to write 'Fun' for Fox

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.
