Screen Gems Aware of "The Big Chill"



Screen Gems is setting up a remake of Lawrence Kasdan's 1983 drama comedy "The Big Chill."

Reworking an old property, Screen Gems is in progress to develop a new version of "The Big Chill", the 1983 drama comedy that scored writer-director Lawrence Kasdan a nomination in best original screenplay slot at Academy Awards in 1984.

Though it will likely to get re-titled, the remake is said to stick closely to the original storyline, in which seven college friends reunite over a weekend at a South Carolina house for the funeral of a pal and become introspective about how their lives turned out.

The setting, however, will be contemporized with the cast consisting of African American stars instead. Already become a part of the ensemble is Regina King, who is also set to produce with her sister, Reina King, and Will Packer.
