Paramount Pictures is in early talks to develop a remake of the 1995 film “Clueless,” an individual with knowledge of the project told TheWrap.
“Girls Trip” writer Tracy Oliver is set to produce, while “Glow” writer Marquita Robinson is penning the script. However, there is no script yet.
The original “Clueless” was written and directed by Amy Heckerling and starred Alicia Silverstone, Paul Rudd, Breckin Meyer, Jeremy Sisto, Stacey Dash, Donald Faison, Elisa Donovan and Brittany Murphy.
The film followed a group of teenagers attending Beverly Hills High School who try to boost a new student’s popularity. The film got a spinoff series also named “Clueless,” with many of the cast returning except for Silverstone and Rudd. Silverstone was replaced in the role of Cher by Rachel Blanchard. A collection of books were also published in the wake of the success of the film.
“Clueless: The Musical” is also debuting on off-Broadway this fall at the Alice Griffin Jewel Box Theatre within the Pershing Square Signature Center in New York City. Kristin Hanggi is directing.
A spokesperson for Paramount had no comment.
Deadline first reported the news.
