Being a Hollywood exec has got to be easy, no? Everything from my childhood is being “re-booted” nowadays; Spiderman, Ninja Turtles, Knight Rider… The list goes on and on. From the small screen, to the silver screen, Hollywood tends to regurgitate more than Kate Moss in the mid 90′s. I need to get me a job in them there hills.
In no particular order, here are 5 stand outs from my childhood I’d like to see puked up again:
Theres a ghost. That wrties. Actually he pulls letters from his surroundings to make sentences. A group of kids that resemble a United Colours of Benneton ad are able to communicate with him and they have kick ass markers that hang from lanyards around their necks. GW uses his bad-ass phonetic skillz to help the gang solve mysteries. They also hang out at a bodega (say it with me now; “bo-de-ga”) and occasionally film rap videos.
Ghostwriter meets Dangerous Minds. Gabriella is knocked up by Jamal; Alejandro is forcing Lenny to turn tricks on the side, and Ghostwriter brings them together to solve such mysteries as “Who’s the baby daddy?” and “Will Hector get his G.E.D?”. There is probably a role for Nick Cannon in there somewhere. Err – Scratch that…
