The 1970s Richard Pryor-headlined comedy Car Wash – that gave us the song of the same name – is getting a remake…
Universal is eyeing up a remake of the 1976 comedy Car Wash, that originally starred Richard Pryor. He led the cast, alongside The Pointer Sisters, Bill Duke, George Carlin, Otis Day and Lorraine Gray. You may very well be familiar with the title song, too.
Car Wash followed the employees of, well, a car wash across a day of their lives. The new version thus far only has producers attached. Suzanne Coston is producing the rename, with Suzanne de Passe executive producing.
As of yet, it’s unclear how closely the new film will reflect and/or mirror the first, and the search is on for a writer for the new film.
