The favorite childhood movie of many an ’80s-born little girl could be making a reappearance. A TV version of “Now & Then” — which starred famous folks like Demi Moore, Rosie O’Donnell, Melanie Griffith and Christina Ricci — is in development at ABC Family.
I. Marlene King, the woman behind the network’s current hit “Pretty Little Liars,” wrote the screenplay for the 1995 film, and Variety reports she is currently working on a TV adaptation. It’s in the earliest stages of development and likely wouldn’t even film a pilot until 2013, but still — a “Now & Then” movie! So exciting.
The film followed four girls during a 1970s summer, with O’Donnell, Moore and Griffith playing the older versions of the characters. And in your bummer news of the day, we regret to inform you that Ashleigh Aston Moore, who played one of the girls, died in 2007 at the age of 26.
What other ’90s movies should be rebooted for the small screen?
