If you are a Good Times fan, you can get all excited because it appears that there is going to be a feature film based off of the 1970s hit sitcom.
Now, we aren’t talking about the film that is in development by Sony Pictures and is being produced by Scott Rudin. We are talking about the second film that is in the works and the surviving cast of the sitcom will be involved in the making of the project. There has been a Kickstarter campaign created to get the project up and running. The Kickstarter hopes to raise $1 million, which doesn’t look like they will make it. At the time of writing this article, the page only has 27 hours left and they’ve only received $8,682 toward their goal. Ouch.
We will admit, the Kickstarter doesn’t tell us very much about what fans can expect by backing the film. According to the pitch, the only real information we get is:
“During these forty years as a cast we have been giving a numerous amount of scripts that were written about what happened to the Evans’ family. The ideas are countless, but as a group we have made a decision on where each character should go and what this long awaited script should be about. We are bursting at the [seams] to bring this exciting movie to you. All that we can tell you at this point is that it will be exactly what you expect from us and more. I am sure you will agree that the ones who can tell the stories of each character are those who have lived with those characters for forty years. That would be each one of us in the cast. Therefore in this movie we will have great input into what our characters will be about now.“
…That doesn’t give us much. At all.
What do you think? Which Good Times movie would you go and see, if any? Comment below!
