Lesli Linka Glatter, the director of the 1995 movie Now and Then, recently revealed a big-screen remake of the coming-of-age film may happen in the near future.
"I'm very friendly with the woman who wrote it, Marlene King, so yes, that has come up," Linka Glatter said in an interview on Feb. 13.

The original film starred Rosie O’Donnell (Roberta), Rita Wilson (Chrissy), Melanie Griffith (Teeny) and Demi Moore (Samantha) as four childhood friends who reunite in their hometown after spending years apart.

The story flashes back between the group as adults and the women as girls in the 1970s. The adolescent characters were played by Christina Ricci (young Roberta), Ashleigh Aston Moore (young Chrissy), Thora Birch (young Teeny) and Gabby Hoffman (young Samantha).

"It seems to be [with] this film especially, young women have come of age on it and I love that; that was one of the reasons we made it, there hadn't been anything done about young girls growing up,” Linka Glatter told ‘Vulture.'
A TV version of a ‘Now and Then’ remake was previously in the works for ABC last year, but the series sadly never came to fruition.
"ABC Family has shown a little bit of interest in that," the film's writer Marlene King said in a Reddit AMA in June 2014. “So we're still talking about that." No further details have been revealed since that time.
