"I Dream of Jeannie" Movie in the Works, Again

Posted: April 21st, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"I Dream of Jeannie" Movie in the Works, AgainSubmit Comment
"I Dream of Jeannie" television show has been trying to make it to the big screen for many years. Writers have been putting together screenplays and directors have been signed on, only to see the project fall apart every time. At one point, Lindsay Lohan was on board to star as Jeannie.

LA Times is now reporting that Sony has hired Sheila Callaghan (Showtime's "The United States of Tara") to come up with her own take. The most difficult thing the studio sees is to update the 1960s sitcom without the many pre-feminist ideas. After all, the show revolves around an astronaut who keeps a subservient woman in a bottle.

Many believe that it will be difficult to write an "I Dream of Jeannie" script that Sony will like. But even if that happens, the studio may reconsider the entire thing since the similar-themed "Bewitched" flopped in theaters back in 2005. Stay tuned.

So, who's going to be the lead. It has to be a "sexy" horrible actress, that hasn't had a major role in a long time... Lindsay Lohan? Paris Hilton? How about Rob Schneider?

Lindsey Lohan as Jeannie ?

They'd have to rename it " I Dream of Syphillis "

Finally! A Jeannie that blinks and comes out in a bondage suit!

I bet Barbara Eden had some nice ripe melons back in the day ... man, I bet Larry Hagman hoped for a cold day on the set ;)

If they pick a hot actress (not Lindsey), they can rename it " I dream of Jeannie sitting on my face ".
