The upcoming Jem and the Holograms live-action movie has numerous eighties and nineties kids jumping with glee as the release date has been confirmed to be on October 15, 2015. This is different from initial reports that the film will be coming out in 2016.

Directing the film will be Jon M. Chu (Step Up 2: The Streets, Step Up 3D, G.I. Joe: Retaliation) and joining him will be producers Jason Blum for Blumhouse Productions responsible for movies like Paranormal Activity and The Purge, Scooter Braun for School Boy Projects (music-related projects), Bennett Schneir (Battleship, Ouija), and Brian Goldner and Stephen Davis, both from Hasbro Studios.

By the looks of the roster of people behind the film, fans are pretty wary of whether the film will be a sure hit or if it would be good at all, considering that the director who is responsible for “mediocre” movies decided to team up with producers who are also responsible for low, if not “average-rated” movies. Not to mention one of them is not even a movie producer per se, but a music talent manager (we’re looking at you, Mr. Braun.) Nevertheless, fans will definitely watch the Jem and the Holograms Movie on its release date.

As to the cast members, playing the role of the leader Jem, will be Aubrey Peeples, pretty unknown to most people, but was a cast member for TV series Nashville. Joining her will be Stefanie Scott, who was a cast member of Disney’s A.N.T. Farm. Stefanie will play the role of Jem’s little sister Kimber. Other cast members to round up the group will be Aurora Perrineau from Pretty Little Liars (playing the character Shana,) and Hayley Kiyoko of Wizards of Waverley Place.
