80’s Valley Girl Film Remake Will Be A Musical

February 17, 2012

Get ready for a musical remake of the 1983 rom com Valley Girl in which commercials director Clay Weiner is set to make his feature film directorial debut says Deadline.

The original followed a Hollywood punk (Nicolas Cage) with no money who sets his sights on winning the affection of a popular and pretty Valley girl (Deborah Foreman) with a loutishly preppy boyfriend (Michael Bowen) .

This musical version will see the characters dialogue infused with 80’s New Wave tunes from bands like Go-Go’s and The Cars

Jenny Lumet (“Rachel Getting Married“) is currently re-writing Amy Talkington‘s script.

Weiner was said to have put together a three-minute demo reel, paid for out of his own pocket, and that helped him get the job.

Why?!! Gag me with a spoon…
