A ‘Clueless’ remake is happening—And fans aren’t thrilled


Rumor has it there’s a “Clueless” remake in the works — but fans of the original 1995 comedy aren’t quite on board with the idea of a hip, new Cher Horowitz.

The details of the reboot are still in the works, but here’s what we do know: While the original coming-of-age romantic comedy, based on Jane Austen’s “Emma,” was written and directed by Amy Heckerling, this new spin would include the talents of “Girls Trip” writer Tracy Oliver as producer, while Marquita Robinson — a writer on Netflix’s “GLOW” — will write the script.

New actors would also likely be on deck, which means the beloved characters played by Alicia Silverstone, Paul Rudd, Stacey Dash, the late Brittany Murphy and others would see fresh faces.

Exciting news, right? Well, it depends on who you ask.

@davidmackau gave it a hard pass on Twitter, posting a link to the news and a simple one-liner in all caps: “STOP WITH THIS ENOUGH ENOUGH NOW.”

Meanwhile, @safiyajn posted to Twitter that she had her own ideas for how to make this script work, though even then, she doesn’t really want it to happen.

And @CaseyMdoza was all “why tho?” with her tweet about the news.

Fans of the original film also said Hollywood should just know when to leave a good thing well enough alone, like @GuyLodge, who pointed out on Twitter that all the reasons we loved “Clueless” in the ’90s are why it’s so not 2018.

Sounds like fans of the original film are giving this remake a resounding, “As if!” What do you think?
