Kirstie Alley and John Travolta Want to Join 'Look Who's Talking' Reboot


Kirstie Alley is ready to hear some talking babies again.

The actress has revealed she and John Travolta are eager to reprise their roles in the upcoming reboot of their 1989 film “Look Who’s Talking.”

“John and I, we both really want to do it, because we think it’s funny that we’re the grandparents,” the 69-year-old said during an appearance on “The Talk.”

“Our kids will be ugly so that we’ll still be the stars, but the grandkids can be really cute.”

Despite her interest, Alley disclosed she is in the dark about the new remake.

“But we don’t know what’s happening,” she said. “We heard a rumor they were doing it, but I don’t know if it’s with us or without us.”

Hoping to get fan support, Alley urged audiences to help get the word out about her desire to return to the franchise.

She continued: “So if you want to write cards and letters? Does anyone do that anymore? You can go online!”

Last year, it was announced a modern update of the film was in the works by writer/director Jeremy Garelick that would allegedly feature a diverse cast.

At the time, Garelick ushered praise to the original stars but made no mention if they would be asked back.

“Everyone can relate to babies,” Garelick told Deadline. “The challenge is, that was a really good movie, Travolta and Kirstie Alley had great chemistry and Amy Heckerling wrote a great script. We’re in the early stages of figuring out what the story is for the modern version of the movie.”

A surprise hit upon release, “Look Who’s Talking” spent five weeks at the top of the box office in 1989 and earned over $140 million domestically. Alley and Travolta returned for two sequels: “Look Who’s Talking Too” in 1990 and “Look Who’s Talking Now!” in 1993.

The first two films also featured Bruce Willis as the voice of Alley’s character’s son, Mikey.

While Willis didn’t return for “Look Who’s Talking Now!,” Diane Keaton and Danny Devito joined the cast as the voices for the family’s newly acquired dogs. Woof!
