Aubrey Peeples of “Nashville” fame will play the title character in the new film, which was announced last month and is based on a cartoon series that aired between 1985 and 1987. Jem’s band members, the Holograms — Kimber, Aja and Shana, will be played by Stefanie Scott, Hayley Kiyoko and Aurora Perrineau.
The director is Jon M. Chu, who helmed “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” and “Justin Bieber’s Believe.” Justin Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun, is one of the producers. An open casting call for the film was put out weeks ago, calling for people to send in videos of themselves. In a YouTube clip, Chu also asked for submissions showcasing people’s “creativity,” “from writing music to designing costumes.”
