Rebooting the old musical comedy show Glee seems a bit outdated. However, with the help with the help of fans on Twitter, Ryan Murphy (American Horror Story, Eat Pray Love) teases his followers with an idea of a reboot with current popular actors according to Entertainment Weekly. While none of this is solidified in the works, Murphy has toyed around with reimagining this hit show.

Someone sent this to me with the caption “Film Twitter Glee Reboot.”
Glee told the story of misfits joining their high school glee club, with drama, musical numbers an unbreakable bond built throughout the series that ran on Fox from 2009 to 2015. It starred Cory Monteith (Monte Carlo) as Finn Hudson, Lea Michele (Screen Queens) as Rachel Berry, Matthew Morrison as Will Schuester (What to Expect When You’re Expecting), Kevin McHale (True Blood) as Artie Abrams, Naya Rivera (The Royal Family) as Santana Lopez, Jenna Ushkowitz (Yellow Fever) as Tina Cohen-Chang, and many others who made their debut career within this series. The show won 4 Golden Globes including Jane Lynch (Wreck-it Ralph) as Sue Sylvester winning Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television .
Ideas for this dreamcast, crafted by fans on Twitter includes stars Timothée Chalamet (Lady Bird) as Finn Hudson, with Saoirse Ronan (Lovely Bones) as Rachel Berry. According to Entertainment Weekly, fans made these casting-calls due to personality similarities, such as Ronan’s bubbly personality to substitute for Berry. Other ideas include Brad Pitt as glee club director Will Schuester, with his Once Upon a Time in Hollywood costar Margot Robbie (Wolf of Wall Street) to be Quinn Fabray. Murphy has previously wanted to reimagine Glee previously, with Michele, Ben Platt (Pitch Perfect) and Beanie Feldstein (What We Do in the Shadows) as stars.

Imagine it’s 2009, and I lived in a world where I knew Lea Michele, Ben Platt and Beanie Feldstein (Ben and Beanie, I believe, were in high school then…and I think they dressed up as Glee characters once for Halloween?) If I had access to that talent, here’s the new pilot: Lea and Ben are frenemies who fight for the heart and soul of Glee Club. Ben is also on the football team, and pretty much sleeps with the entire school and is the heartthrob of McKinley. Beanie is their mutual best friend, and torn. Suddenly, Beanie joins forces with Sue Sylvester, joins Glee Club and becomes the main soloist and the ruthless star of the club. Lea and Ben have to then join forces to dethrone her. I WANT TO SHOOT THIS DO OVER PILOT. Maybe I will?
There is no official Glee reboot as of now.
