‘The Breakfast Club’ star Molly Ringwald is hitting the silver screen again, but this time she’s picked up a role in the real-life version of the ’80s cartoon ‘Jem And The Holograms.’

A report has just been released that says Molly Ringwald, 46, will have a role in the real life version of the ’80s cartoon Jem And The Holograms. Molly dominated the ’80s movie scene, staring in movies like The Breakfast club, and Pretty In Pink. Now it looks like she will relive a little of that ’80s magic by staring in this cartoon reboot.

Molly’s character has not been released yet but the actress was quick to share her enthusiasm about joining the project on Twitter. 

She posted to her account that she was hanging out on set with Juliette Lewis who also has a role in the upcoming movie.


Molly was an ’80s sensation with movies like Pretty In Pink, The Breakfast Club and Sisteen Candles. The movies, which were all directed by John Hughes, cast Molly as a teenager who was just going through the normal growing pains of being a teen in the ’80s.

Molly joins Nashville star Aubrey Peeples, who will be cast as the main character in what will be her first major film role! Stefanie Scott, who is a former Disney star, will play Jem’s sister Kimber, Pretty Little Liars’ Aurora Perrineau is set to play the role of the Holograms’ Shana and The Fosters’ Hayley Kiyoko will join the band as Aja.

Ryan Landels wrote the script, which focuses on an orphaned teenage girl who becomes an online recording sensation. Sounds familiar to us because so many of today’s stars have been discovered online on YouTube.

Justin Bieber and current American Idol star Christina Grimmie are a couple of the names that come to mind when you talk about online stars that have become household names. 

The movie will follow Jem and her sisters as they embark on a music-inspired scavenger hunt across Los Angeles in order to reveal a final message that was left by Jem’s father.
