Clearly my head has been residing up my arse, because I had no idea the Fame movie was being remade. But it has been, and it hits cinemas “this Fall”.

Watching the trailer you kind of get the impression that the new Fame is going to be to High School Musical what 90210 is to Gossip Girl; that is, an opportunistic but kind of understandable attempt by a bygone “brand” to jump on the back of a successful product which owes a considerbale debt to the original incarnation of that brand.

And I’m sure that’s what the tweens will be saying as they exit the multiplex “this Fall”.
