“Jamie and I are trying to do it,” Marshall told TV Guide. “He’s writing it. It’s a whole different modern day take on how they came up on the streets during difficult times. Laverne would be this very tough girl with a big ‘L’ tattooed on her arm.”
Marshall is eyeing Jennifer Garner for the role of Laverne and Jessica Biel for the part of Shirley. He directed both actresses as well as Foxx in romantic comedy Valentine’s Day.
Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams played the roles in the original series.
