MGM has put a musical remake of its 1983 comedy Valley Girl into development, with Sean Bailey producing through his Idealogy Inc., reports Variety.
The project is based on an idea by Bailey and Idealogy’s Matt Smith, who will executive produce. The musical will utilize the “Romeo and Juliet” story of the original Valley Girl and sport classic ’80s songs.
Bailey most recently produced Gone Baby Gone for Miramax and is developing a Tron sequel, Sabbatical and Hexum and Liberty for Disney. He also produced “Project Greenlight,” which aired on HBO and Bravo, and is developing “The Unlimited,” a pilot for ABC Studios.
