juliette lewis jem and the holograms movieTruly outrageous! Oscar nominee Juliette Lewis is joining the cast of "Jem and the Holograms," according to Deadline.

John M. Chu is directing the live-action version of the '80s cartoon classic about a music company owner who moonlights as the lead singer of a rock band. Aubrey Peeples is set to play Jerrica Benton aka Jem.

Which character Lewis will be inhabiting is still a mystery. Lewis is a talented singer who's fronted her own rock bands before. The easy answer is that she's playing Synergy, the computer/fairy godmother that helps transform Jerrica into Jem. Or perhaps Lewis is a part of the rival band, the Misfits.

Production on "Jem and the Holograms" is already underway, but no release date has been set.
