Walt Disney Pictures and producer Brett Ratner are teaming up to remake the studio's 1984 classic The Flamingo Kid. Nzingha Stewart, a music video director and executive producer on Tyler Perry's For Colored Girls, will write the screenplay.
Matt Dillon starred in The Flamingo Kid as Jeffrey Willis, a kid fresh out of high school who takes a job at the Flamingo Club. He gets sucked into the ritzy life at the club, determined to become rich and popular like all of its members. It isn't known if this redo will be set in modern day, or in a different time period. The original was set in 1963.
