Hot off the current season of Hulu’s Only Murders in the Building, The Walt Disney Company wants to continue to work with Selena Gomez.
According to Deadline, Gomez is gearing up to work with Disney-owned 20th Century Studios on a reboot of the 1980s classic Working Girl. Per the trade, Ilana Pena is adapting the script, and the film will likely premiere on Hulu. Gomez will produce; however, it is unknown if she will star.
Released in 1988, and starring Melanie Griffith, Harrison Ford, Sigourney Weaver, and Joan Cusack, Working Girl follows an ambitious secretary from Staten Island who takes over her new boss’s role while the boss is laid up with a broken leg. The secretary, who has been attending business night school, pitches a profitable idea, only to have the boss attempt to take credit. It is unknown if the reboot will follow the same plot.
20th Century Studios is working on a string of 80s/90s reboots, which include White Men Can’t Jump, starring Jack Harlow and Sinqua Walls, as well as a series on the British comedy The Full Monty. With the billion-dollar success that is Top Gun: Maverick, it makes sense that studios want to revisit some 80s classics.
