We’ve spent the last couple of years watching some of our favorite classics getting new remakes and spin-offs, and smash-hit comedy Look Who’s Talking is the next one in line.
Sony Pictures subsidiary Screen Gems is rebooting this movie three decades after its release. The original movie premiered in 1989, and it saw Kirstie Alley taking on the role of a career-obsessed single mom who finds herself in an uncomfortable situation after getting pregnant with a married man. The movie won over audiences all over the world because the story was told from the point of view of a newborn baby, voiced by action superstar Bruce Willis.
The reboot of this ‘80s classic will be directed by Jeremy Garelick, who decided to tackle this story because he found it relatable, but admitted it won’t be an easy feat.
“The challenge is, that was a really good movie, Travolta and Kirstie Alley had great chemistry and Amy Heckerling wrote a great script. We’re in the early stages of figuring out what the story is for the modern version of the movie,” told Garelick to Deadline.
