Director Garry Marshall recently discussed the rumored ‘Laverne and Shirley’ movie and rumors thay Jamie Foxx is writing the script. “Jamie and I are trying to do it,” Garry said. “He’s writing it. It’s a whole different modern day take on how they came up on the streets during difficult times. Laverne would be this very tough girl with a big ‘L’ tattooed on her arm. Jennifer Garner would play Laverne and Jessica Biel would play Shirley.”
Foxx also plans to write in roles for the show’s original stars, Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams.
