Brett Ratner Plans A “Flamingo Kid” Remake

Disney Pictures is planning a remake of Garry Marshall’s 1984 film “The Flamingo Kid” which Brett Ratner, Michael Phillips and Juliana Maio will produce says Deadline.

The original starred Matt Dillon as a blue collar high school graduate who gets a job at a rich beach club whose owner becomes his mentor. Wanting to leave behind his confining origins, he soon learns that this high lifestyle isn’t at all what he expected.

Nzingha Stewart (“For Colored Girls”) is penning the script for the new version.
