Now and Then screenwriter Marlene King wants to revive the popular 1995 film as a TV series.
King divulged the plan after a fan asked if there will ever be a follow-up to the coming-of-age film nearly 20 years after its debut.
In a Reddit.com Ask Me Anything session on Monday, King explained, “We’re talking about it. We’re talking about Now & Then the TV series. ABC Family has shown a little bit of interest in that, so we’re still talking about that. People tweet about this to me all the time, they’ll even send me photos of themselves watching the movie on a sunday afternoon.”
Now and Then followed a group of four grown-up women and featured flashbacks to their childhood in the 1970s. The film featured Demi Moore, Rosie O’Donnell, Melanie Griffith, and Rita Wilson, while their younger counterparts were played by Gaby Hoffmann, Christina Ricci, Thora Birch, and the late Ashleigh Aston Moore, respectively.
