Fame gets a director

MGM has settled on a man to remake Fame – the 1980 drama directed by Alan Parker that launched the TV show and musical.

That man is Kevin Tancharoen. Never heard of him? Us neither, but despite being 23, he’s also an accomplished dancer and choreographer responsible for a couple of MTV shows and certainly knows a lot about hoofing.

He starts filming later in the year and Variety is dancing with the details.
