Sony Pictures Plans Good Times Movie Adaptation
Let’s all say it together: Dy-no-mite!
According to Deadline, the ‘70s comedy Good Times will become a feature film produced by Sony Pictures and Scott Rudin.
Based in the south side of Chicago, Norman Lear’s socially-aware Good Times tells the story of James and Florida Evans and their three charismatic children J.J., Thelma and Michael. The realistic series was groundbreaking for American television because it was the first to feature a working class black family that also navigated issues with finances and unemployment.
Scott Rudin is a highly celebrated producer with credits including No Country for Old Men, The Social Network, the Broadway hit musical The Book of Morman and many more. Rudin is also the only producer to achieve the coveted EGOT.
Expected to feature storylines about the Civil Rights Era, the movie will take place in the ‘60s. The cast has not yet been announced.
