The original movie The Idolmaker was released in 1980 and was directed by Taylor Hackford. The Idolmaker is a biopic on music promoter and producer Bob Micucci, who discovered such talented acts as Frankie Avalon and Fabian.
We reported back in February that The Idolmaker is one of several remakes being developed at MGM, although it seems this might be the first one out of the gate.
