"Good Times" Sitcom Gets Feature Reboot?

Sony Pictures and producer Scott Rudin are teaming for a family comedy feature film based on the 1970s sitcom "Good Times".

The original sitcom focused on working-class couple James and Florida Evans as they raised three kids while struggling with hard financial times, unemployment and keeping their kids away from temptations that came with living in a Chicago housing project.

The film version will shift the setting to an even earlier time - the 1960s - which allows exploration of the rich and politically charged period.

Phil Johnston ("Wreck-It Ralph," "Cedar Rapids") has been set to write the script. Eli Bush will also produce.
