The original movie The Idolmaker was released in 1980 and was directed by Taylor Hackford. The Idolmaker is a biopic on music promoter and producer Bob Micucci, who discovered such talented acts as Frankie Avalon and Fabian.
We reported back in February that The Idolmaker is one of several remakes being developed at MGM, although it seems this might be the first one out of the gate. Our earlier report indicated The Idolmaker will be updated to follow the current music trends, although it isn't known if Bob Micucci will serve as the basis of this remake.
It is unclear when production will start on The Idolmaker, or who will be writing the screenplay.
