I love that recasting of Highlander especially Michael Fassbender as Connor MacLeod and Ray Stevenson as The Kurgan. For Ramirez though, Neeson (while an OUTSTANDING CHOICE) is too similar to Connery (you can't have another British Islander in that role again) and he has played the mentor role too often.

 

I'd go for either Mr. Spaniard himself---Antonio Banderas--as Ramirez.

 

 

A darkhorse for the role would be Oded Fehr.

Daniel Day-Lewis as Phillip Connors

 

 

Julianne Moore as Rita

 

 

Kevin Spacey as Larry

 

 

and Brad Dourif as Mr. Ryerson

After a blizzard shuts down the roads Phil and his team are forced to stay in town overnight. The following day, he realizes his reliving February 2 and after depression and numerous suicide attemps, he begins to fall into madness. Why is he condemned to relive that day over and over? Why is he the only one aware of the time loop? Who is the mysterious Mr. Ryerson (Brad Dourif) who claims to know Phillip? What happens in Punxsutawney? Is this really happening or is it all in his mind?

 The Anchorman as drama looks like it could actually work; maybe even be an Oscar favorite. I would lose Champ as semi-retarded. Cast him as someone who was a failed high school jock and being a sports reporter is how he tries to make up for an unhappy childhood that he can't get over.

Oh yeah, it'd be total Oscar Bait, as much as I hate that term.

 

Champ (sports reporter) not the retarded one anyways, that's Brick. Champ would be a washed-up athlete with a drinking problem and repressed homosexuality -- just like in the original, but cast in a totally different light, obviously.

post #2043 of 3076

An unnecessarily delayed followup to one of my earlier posts.

 

Two years after the commercial and critical success of the action-thriller The Bourne Identity, director John Frankenheimer reunites the cast of his previous film for the highly-anticipated sequel, as well as bringing along some young up-and-coming European actors, and an old collaborator cast against type in a key role. Production moves to Berlin, and the new film tackles the East-West divide, as well as US-Soviet relations. The early death of actor Laurence Harvey (cast as one of the lead villains) halts production briefly before another actor in cast. Ultimately, the film goes on to be another success, but the use in many scenes of handheld cameras causes some concern, prompting the invention of the Steadicam in 1976.

Dominique Sanda as Bourne's lover Marie Kreutz

Melinda Dillon as CIA technician Nicky Parsons

Jamie Foxx as Alpa Chino
Tim Roth as Kevin Sandusky
Christopher Walken as John "Four Leaf" Tayback
Michael Fassbender as Damien Cockburn
Mike Myers as Cody Underwood
Eli Roth as Rob Slolom
With
Brad Pitt as Rick "Pecker" Peck
And
Leonardo DiCaprio as Les Grossman

This might be not the best Quentin Tarantino's casting but if you agree or disagree with this choice, give me suggestion on who should play?

Only thing I might suggest would be Harvey Keitel as Grossman. I think he could make it funny even without the fat suit.

I'm afraid I don't have one, but Keitel occurred to me for Grossman. I'm actually working on an recast for Master & Commander I will post later on.

To tell you a truth. I was originally going to do a Martin Scorsese version of Tropic Thunder but I decide to pick Quentin Tarantino because no one pick him yet
