March 20 (UPI) -- Director Jon M. Chu announced he's teaming up with producers Jason Blum and Scooter Braun to make a live-action version of the 1980s cartoon classic Jem and the Holograms.

Chu, director of G.I. Joe: Retaliation, made the announcement on YouTube on Thursday.

"The movie, without giving away too much, is a modern day, live action reinvention of the 1980s Hasbro classic cartoon Jem and the Holograms," he said.

The team behind the movie is asking for fan support in the form of creative ideas and talent. They asked fans to upload videos telling what they loved most about the cartoon along with the has tag #JemTheMovie.

"This is the real way we're making our movie," Chu said. "This is not a contest; this is actually how we're putting things together."
