The ’70s brought us bell-bottomed pants, enormous Afros and plenty of the laughs from the hit sitcom Good Times.
Now, according to Deadline, those memories may have a chance to be revived as unconfirmed reports claim that the TV show is being adapted into a full-length movie.
Sony productions has reportedly teamed up with Wreck-It Ralph producer Scott Rudin, along with the animated film’s co-writer Phil Johnston, to revive the CBS sitcom that went off air in 1979.
Although it has been over three decades since the show’s finale, its characters have become iconic, thanks to unforgettable performances from the likes of John Amos (as James Evans, Sr.), Jimmie Walker (as J.J.) and Janet Jackson (as Penny). The show distinguished itself by tackling issues that faced working-class black families.
TheGrio has reached out to the producers allegedly attached to the project but they declined to comment.
If this concept becomes a reality, who would you like to see cast for the retro roles?
And how do you think the movie will battle out on the big screen?
