Columbia Pictures to bring

PanARMENIAN.Net - Columbia Pictures is looking to bring a version of 1970s TV hit Good Times to the big screen, The Hollywood Reporter said.

The CBS series ran from 1974-79 and starred Jimmie Walker, Esther Rolle and a young Janet Jackson. Walker was known for a number of catchphrases including his trademark "Dy-no-mite!"

Scott Rudin and Eli Bush are producing the Good Times film, while Phil Johnston is on board to write.

The studio, which scored with a film remake of 1970s hit TV series Charlie's Angels, has been trying to mount big-screen versions of other titles it owns from the era, including I Dream of Jeannie and Fantasy Island.
