Can you believe it's been 5 years since the Beautiful Life first aired?! (5 years, 15 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did the Beautiful Life end?
When the Beautiful Life came to an end after 1 year in December 2009, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Sonja Stone (Mischa Barton). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a Beautiful Life reunion disappoint people?
The Beautiful Life aired from 2009-2009 and is considered one of the most influential TV shows ever on pop culture. Although no original episodes have been shot since, it has remained a regular feature on many station's schedules. But Barton said she's not sure if the Beautiful Life would work today. “I don't want to see old Sonja Stone,” she told a journalist (Barton turned 28 in January). “Everyone’s going to have different vision of what the character is like, so to have that materialize is going to disappoint most people,” she added.
Still hoping for a Beautiful Life movie?
In a recent interview, Mischa Barton said she can't imagine a Beautiful Life reunion hitting the big screen. “I'd rather people go, ‘Oh, please! Please!’ than ‘I can't believe you did that. It was horrible.’”
Co-star Corbin Bleu (who played Isaac Taylor) has also previously explained, “It would be terrible to do something and have it not be good,”. “It was so terrific ... If we did a Beautiful Life movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be a Beautiful Life film, Elle Macpherson stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
What about a Beautiful Life reboot?
Recasting the Beautiful Life for a modern reboot. Hollywood is known for remaking remakes of films or tv series and the studios might think it would be great to bring the story back with a new set of characters.
Be it in the form of a Beautiful Life reunion, a Beautiful Life movie, or a Beautiful Life reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
