First announced in 2016, set for release in 2018, pulled due to the Logan Paul controversies, rescheduled for a theatrical release in 2020, changed due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Needless to say it has been a pretty bumpy ride for “Valley Girl”, the upcoming comedy-musical remake of the 1983 original (a movie best known as being Nicolas Cage’s first significant big screen role).
But now its almost here and the first trailer came out last week. The film stars the versatile and talented Jessica Rothe. You may remember her from her small roll in “La La Land”, but most probably know her best as the lead in the two “Happy Death Day” films. She seems to be the perfect fit for something like “Valley Girl”. She has some legit singing chops but also a good eye for comedy. In this film she plays a preppy girl who falls for a punk rocker in the heart of the 1980’s. The movie looks to be energetic, colorful, and (hopefully) fun.
“Valley Girl” is set to drop on VOD May 8th. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
