Molly Ringwald and Juliette Lewis Are Going to Be in the 'Jem' Movie

The upcoming Jem and the Holograms movie just got a very appropriate dose of nostalgia. Molly Ringwald and Juliette Lewis (both old enough to actually remember the original cartoon) have been added to the cast in so-far unknown capacities.

It's doubtful these two would actually be playing members of The Misfits, the murderous rival band intent on destroying The Holograms, because they're nowhere near the same age as the young stars playing Jem and her band. But wouldn't it be awesome if they were playing Misfits? Maybe write them as an aging band looking to off the new competition in some kind of misplaced anger over that stuff that passes for pop music these days.

The movie is being directed by Jon M. Chu, who made the Justin Bieber doc/concert movie Never Say Never, which might give you some idea who the target audience will be.

The previously announced stars of the film include Aubrey Peeples (Jem), Stefanie Scott (Kimber), Aurora Perrineau (Shana), and Hayley Kiyoko (Aja). The movie is due out sometime in 2016.
