Another Bout of "Babysitting"?

by | July 12, 2006 | Comments

Remember the 1987 comedy "Adventures in Babysitting"? The charming little farce that marked the directorial debut of Chris Columbus and kick-started Elisabeth Shue‘s acting career? Wasn’t that a fun little movie? Yeah, well, Disney’s remaking it. Awesome.

From The Hollywood Reporter: "Raven-Symone is attached to star in the Walt Disney Pictures remake of "Adventures in Babysitting." At the same time, she has signed an acting and producing deal that includes a guaranteed pay or play on one movie, with an option for a second.

The original "Babysitting," an ’80s cult favorite, follows a high school senior who gets stuck baby-sitting a bunch of kids. The dull night is interrupted when she gets a call for help from a friend stuck downtown, leading her and the kids into a night of misadventures. The original movie marked the directorial debut of Chris Columbus.

Lynda Obst, who produced the 1987 original with Debra Hill, is on board to produce the remake. David Stem and David Weiss wrote the script for the new "Babysitting." No director has been named yet.:
