Jem is Truly… Happening

Jem and the Holograms Movie

In February, Hasbro announced that a live-action movie based on their ’80s animated series Jem and the Holograms was in the works. Today, comes word on the cast for the Jon M. Chu directed Jem flick. Aubrey Peeples will star as lead vocalist and leader of the Holograms, Jem, while Stefanie Scott will play Jem’s younger sister and keyboardist Kimber. Aurora Perrineau and Hayley Kiyoko round out the Holograms as synth drummer Shana Elmsford and lead guitarist Aja Leith, respectively. Interestingly, there was no mention of Holograms’ drummer Carmen ‘Raya’ Alonso, nor was a release date provided. Chu is no stranger to Hasbro brands, directing 2013’s G.I. Joe: Retaliation. For more, visit
