Breakfast Club Remake?

Before Mamma Mia, this commercial played.



Marla, Darlene, and I were appalled. Since we had missed seeing the website at the beginning of the ad, it looked to us like a remake of The Breakfast Club.

"SACRILEGE!"

"They had BETTER not be re-making The Breakfast Club!!?"

At the end of the commercial, we all sighed in relief to note that this was merely a commercial for J.C. Penney.

But it wouldn't be beyond the scope of imagination to predict a remake of the classic John Hughes 80's film. They remade WarGames, after all. And just about every 70's or 80's popular TV show, toy, or movie is either being remade or followed up with a sequel. (Transformers, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Lost Boys, Indiana Jones, Star Wars, The Smurfs, to mention only a few off the top of my head...)
