Some parents want bigger and better for their children. In the case of Melanie Griffith, she would be happy if her offspring followed in her footsteps. Literally.

Some parents want bigger and better for their children. In the case of Melanie Griffith, she would be happy if her offspring followed in her footsteps. Literally.

According to Showbiz 411, a remake of the 1987 film "Cherry 2000" is possibly in the works. Producer Ed Pressman is apparently "considering it" and has been talking to a few folks, including the aforementioned star of the film who has suggested Dakota Johnson for the lead role. You may recall Johnson as that-girl-who-slept-with-Sean-Parker in "The Social Network," but she's quickly on the rise with roles in "Five Year Engagement" and "21 Jump Street" on the way among other projects. Why on Earth she would even think about starring in remake of a pretty ridiculous movie her Mom was in is beyond us, so yeah, we don't think it'll happen.

"Cherry 2000" takes place in a future world where love doesn't exist and you gotta make it with mannequins. When a guy finds his mannequin has short circuited, he goes on a pretty stupid quest to find a replacement only to realize that the braless woman who joins him on his journey, might actually be a better upgrade. Or something. Anyway, check out the trailer for yourself below.
