"Three's Company" Movie in the Works

I was watching "Good Morning America" today and heard that there's going to be a movie reboot of "Three's Company." At least, somebody is looking into this as an option.

I loved this show when I was a kid. It was around from 1977-1984. It was a sitcom about two girls and a guy (Chrissy, Jack, and Janet) who shared an apartment with each other. The landlords were old fashioned, which forced the heavily heterosexual Jack to pretend to be gay. There were plenty of hijinks and mishaps which kept us laughing over the years.

It's been 40 years since "Three's Company" debuted. We've shifted quite a lot culturally. As much as I loved "Three's Company," I cannot see how they can translate it effectively for a contemporary movie audience. Not unless they play it off like the old "Brady Bunch" movies. Which worked for the Bradys, but would be a strain for the Ropers...

Anyway... #TeamRopers or #TeamMrFurley? Discuss in the comments section...
