First Images from FAME Remake

A little over a month ago I got to visit the set of MGM’s remake of “Fame”. While I was a little nervous walking in as I didn’t know what to expect, I got to see director Kevin Tancharoen film part of the finale and also hear some of the music from the movie. After seeing what’s in store for audiences this fall when the movie gets released, I think MGM is going to do really well with this movie.

 
For those that don’t know about “Fame”, it’s about a performing arts school in New York City and the movie follows a group of students over four years at the school. But instead of filling this movie with a cast of familiar faces, director Kevin Tancharoen has cast a lot of unknowns and this is going to be their big break….sort of like art imitating life.

 

Anyway, in the coming months I’ll be posting my exclusive video interviews I did on the set and a lot more….but until then, I’ve just been given the first 7 images from the movie and they’re below the official synopsis.

 

Also, later tonight I’ll have some video footage from the set so you can see some of the action and meet the new kids. Until then....

 

Director: Kevin Tancharoen

Writers: Allison Burnett & Aline Brosh McKenna, based on the motion picture screenplay Fame by Christopher Gore

Producers: Tom Rosenberg, Gary Lucchesi, Mark Canton

Co-producer: David Kern

Cast: Asher Book, Kristy Flores, Paul Iacono, Paul McGill, Naturi Naughton, Kay Panabaker, Kherington Payne, Collins Pennie, Walter Perez, Anna Maria Perez de Tagle, Debbie Allen, Charles S. Dutton, Kelsey Grammer, Megan Mullally, and Bebe Neuwirth

 

SYNOPSIS: 

A reinvention of the original Oscar-winning hit film, Fame follows a talented group of dancers, singers, actors, and artists over four years at the New York City High School of Performing Arts, a diverse, creative powerhouse where students from all walks of life are given a chance to live out their dreams and achieve real and lasting fame...the kind that comes only from talent, dedication, and hard work.

 

In an incredibly competitive atmosphere, plagued by self-doubt, each student’s passion will be put to the test.  In addition to their artistic goals, they have to deal with everything else that goes along with high school, a tumultuous time full of schoolwork, deep friendships, budding romance, and self-discovery.

 

As each student strives for his or her moment in the spotlight, they’ll discover who among them has the innate talent and necessary discipline to succeed.  With the love and support of their friends and fellow artists, they’ll find out who amongst them will achieve Fame…

 

The cast includes Asher Book as Marco, Kristy Flores as Rosie, Paul Iacono as Neil, Paul McGill as Kevin, Naturi Naughton as Denise, Kay Panabaker as Jenny, Kherington Payne as Alice, Collins Pennie as Malik, Walter Perez as Victor, and Anna Maria Perez de Tagle as Joy.  Their instructors include Debbie Allen as Principal Simms, Charles S. Dutton as Alvin Dowd, Kelsey Grammer as Joel Cranston, Megan Mullally as Fran Rowan, and Bebe Neuwirth as Lynn Kraft.
