‘Good Times’ Cast Crowdfunds For Movie
Could Good Times become a movie? That’s what the original cast of the popular series is hoping, because they have started a Kickstarter fund to make it happen.
Bern Nadette Stanis, Jimmie Walker, Ralph Carter, Jan’net Dubois and John Amos have all come together to create a flick based on the 1970s show.
The goal is to provide “completion” for the fans who are curious about what happened to the Evans family after they left the South Side of Chicago.
“From the day we walked off the set of Good Times, forty years ago, all we have heard is ‘When are you going to have a Good Times reunion,'” the campaign site reads. “Our audience[s] have told us they need completion. They tell us we are not finished with the first Black T.V. family show. What happened? We want to see our favorite family show back on T.V.”
Without the help of rights owner Sony, the crew is aiming to raise $1 million within the next 16 days. So far, they’ve hit nearly $4,000.
