“The Blues Brothers” And “Romancing The Stone” Getting Rebooted For TV Shows

For the past few years, ’70s TV shows like “Charlie’s Angels” and “Hawaii Five-O” have been the thing to reboot for TV shows. But now it feels like ’80s movies are having their moment. Remember “Romancing the Stone,” the 1984 flick starring Kathleen Turner as a romance novelist who heads to South America to bring home her kidnapped sister and ends up getting into all sorts of shenanigans with Michael Douglas? Well, NBC is developing the concept into a series. Only, this time around, said woman will be looking for her missing brother while teaming up with a hot dude for weekly adventures.

And it appears that “The Blues Brothers” will be getting a small-screen treatment, too. Dan Aykroyd is apparently pitching the series around to networks, which is fitting, since the concept did begin on “SNL.” Jim Belushi may be dead, but his ex-wife, who co-owns the rights to the characters along with Aykroyd, is all in for the new show.

Would you be interested in seeing new adaptations of these very ’80s flicks?
