The Hollywood Reporter -- Dy-no-mite!
Columbia Pictures is looking to bring a version of 1970s TV hit "Good Times" to the big screen, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
The CBS series ran from 1974-79 and starred Jimmie Walker, Esther Rolle and a young Janet Jackson. Walker was known for a number of catchphrases including his trademark "Dy-no-mite!"
Scott Rudin and Eli Bush are producing the "Good Times" film, while Phil Johnston is on board to write.
The studio, which scored with a film remake of 1970s hit TV series "Charlie's Angels," has been trying to mount big-screen versions of other titles it owns from the era, including "I Dream of Jeannie" and "Fantasy Island."
