'The Blue Lagoon' Getting A Remake On Lifetime

"A story of natural love," the poster for the 1980 film "The Blue Lagoon" proclaimed, hoping to deflect from the fact that the movie was essentially an excuse to get a teenage Brooke Shields to take off her clothes (though yes, body doubles were used too). That sensual story was told again in "Return To The Blue Lagoon" a PG-13 movie that still managed to get a 15 year old Milla Jovovich to disrobe. We'll pause while you pervs go to Netflix.

"A story of natural love," the poster for the 1980 film "The Blue Lagoon" proclaimed, hoping to deflect from the fact that the movie was essentially an excuse to get a teenage Brooke Shields to take off her clothes (though yes, body doubles were used too).

Anyway, long story short, Deadline reports that Lifetime of all places, is plotting a remake. Weird, right? But apparently this thing has been in the works since 2004 and is now gearing up to shoot in February in Puerto Rico. Not word yet on what young, nubile, up-and-coming teen is going to get to get ogled, but it seems they need to find a director first. Just a couple of months to go there, guys.

Lifetime seems to be pushing ahead on these random remakes, as they are also doing that all-black cast redo of "Steel Magnolias." Better these than "America's Supernanny" or "24 Hour Catwalk" we guess.
