The 61-year-old part-Spanish American actor and his fellow Brat Pack alums (Andrew McCarthy, Rob Lowe, Demi Moore, Jon Cryer and Ally Sheedy) and more are reuniting for the feature documentary Brats.

Emilio EstevezThe film is a revealing look at the cultural phenomenon the Pack became in the 1980s and how that has impacted their lives ever since.

Brats, from ABC News StudiosNeon and Network Entertainment, is set to premiere on Hulu later this year.

McCarthy, author of the 2021 memoir Brat: An ‘80s Story, writes and directs the documentary, which is now in post-production. He co-starred with fellow Brat Packers in some of the biggest hits of the mid- ‘80s including St. Elmo’s Fire (1985), Pretty in Pink (1986) and Less Than Zero (1987).

“McCarthy crisscrosses the country to meet up with some of the stars of those beloved films, including, among others, Rob Lowe, Demi Moore, Ally Sheedy, Emilio Estevez, Jon Cryer, Lea Thompson, Timothy Hutton and key members of production, including directors, casting directors, screenwriters and producers,” notes a description of Brats. “He also sits down for a first-time conversation with writer David Blum, who fatefully coined the term Brat Pack in a 1985 New York Magazine cover story. A potent mix of Hollywood fascination, movie history and deeply personal revelations, Brats reveals how the label caused a frenzy and impacted each of them, personally and professionally, in this entertaining, intimate and evocative film.”

“The Brat Pack has cast a long shadow over my life and career,” McCarthy said in a statement. “After all these years, I was curious to see how it had affected my fellow Brat Pack members. What I found was surprising — and liberating.”

Estevez starred in St. Elmo’s Fire, The Outsiders, The Breakfast Club and Young Guns, among others.
