Amazon Studios are looking to milk their newly owned MGM library with plans to get moving on resurrecting some of those franchises they now on. In addition to Robocop, Stargate and Poltergeist, Deadline say on the table are Legally Blonde, Fame, The Pink Panther, The Magnificent Seven and The Thomas Crown Affair.
Some will be produced for television, some will be produced for film. On Legally Blonde, the trade says the shingle is “in active early conversations” about a new movie (presumably featuring star Reese Witherspoon reviving her role) and a TV series.
It’s not known whether Barbership, which is also headed for the redo treatment, will be a series or feature or both. Nor Fame, The Magnificent Seven, The Pink Panther or The Thomas Crow Affair.
We reported previously on plans for a Creed universe spanning film and TV, which Amazon Studios has been discussing with franchise star and filmmaker Michael B. Jordan.
