MGM is remaking the 1980s musical Fame, a drama which concentrated on ambitious and talented teens training for the entertainment business at New York's High School of the Performing Arts.
The studio is stocking the cast with relative unknowns who, like the characters in the film, are hoping to make it big in the music and movie businesses! Among the cast members are Kristy Flores, Paul Iacono and Paul McGill. Thomas Dekker of TV's Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles is in negotiations to take one of the remaining lead roles in the film.
The film will be reinvented and is expected to start shooting next month. The studio has already assigned a September 25, 2009 release date.
