Thought Hollywood was done rolling out iconic reboots? As if! Girls Trip screenwriter Tracy Oliver has been tapped to produce a remake of the 90s classic, Clueless, according to Deadline. The screenplay is also being written by a woman with receipts, Marquita Robinson, who has written for Glow, Survivor’s Remorse and Black-ish.
The 1995 blockbuster hit, loosely based on Jane Austen’s novel Emma, originally starred Alicia Silverstone and Stacey Dash. Although there’s no word on who will take on the huge shoes of high school student, Cher, and her Black bestie, Dionne, that shouldn’t be a problem for Oliver.
Thankfully Oliver and Robinson have already worked with some of the hottest young actresses on the scene, including Yara Shahidi, so there’s no doubt that this will be one remake that Hollywood gets right. There’s also no details yet about whether they’ll be picking up from where the kids of Bronson Alcott High left off or developing brand new characters. Still, with two powerful Black women at the helm we’re expecting flawless melanin, natural hair, and serious Dionne shade on set for the culture.
