Venkman-Jack Black

 

Egon-Robert Downey Jr

 

Winston-Anthony Mackie

@stunt pool

 

Downey Jr. NOT playing Venkman? I think he would be the perfect choice for Bill Murray's role of a smooth-talking, womanizing charlatan scientist, don't you think?

As an hommage to his own father, Josh Brolin agreed to star in a remake of 1977's B-movie "The Car" in which James Brolin played the lead role and which was directed by Elliot Silverstein. Producer Wes Craven decided to give his chance to then unknown French director Alexandre Aja for his first film in the US :

... because it is already perfect so!!!

 

Better ideas for the iconic evil car are of course welcome!

I have to say, it seems like those actors are kind of mixed-up. Surely, RDJ as Venkman and Jack Black as Ray are the more natural choices, right? Maybe too obvious?

Actually, I think that's excellent. I didn't even think of that. In my "Endlessly recast Ghostbusters" thread, I even say that my imagination is kind of limited on this and that I think other people would come up with good choices.

(Granted, this would probably retread a lot of thematic ground the Coenim already covered in A Serious Man, but here goes anyway.)

 

The Seven Year Itch

 

Directed by Joel & Ethan Coen

 

Richard Sherman   -   Michael Stuhlbarg

Created with GIMP

"She loves me because I'm sweet! And gentle! And worried! And nervous! And shy! And tender!"

 

The Girl   -   Scarlett Johansson

"If I were your wife, I'd be very jealous of you."

 

Helen Sherman   -   Kelly Macdonald

"You're attractive to me, darling, but then again, I'm used to you."

 

Tom MacKenzie   -   George Clooney

"Oh darling! Inwardly, downwardly! Pulsating, striving! Now together! Ending and unending! Now! Now! Now!"

 

Mr. Kruhulik   -   John Turturro

"Isn't she a living doll."

 

Dr. Brubaker   -   Jon Polito

"I congratulate you on your good taste."

 

Mr. Brady   -   J.K. Simmons

"Well, wait till you've been married as long as I have, and you'll be delighted to get rid of them for the summer!"

 

Vegetarian Restaurant Waitress   -   Frances McDormand

"Nudism is such a worthy cause."

post #2110 of 2486

This summer, they're coming to save the world.

2013

 

 

Dr Peter Venkman - Joel Mchale

 

Dr Raymond Stantz - Jason Segel

 

Dr Egon Spengler - Jim Parsons

 

Winston Zeddmore - Michael Kenneth Williams

 

Dana Barrett - Cobie Smulder

 

Louis Tully - Danny Pudi

 

Janine Melnitz - Aubrey Plaza

 

Walter Peck - James Patrick Stuart

 

 

 

By casting actors more know for TV work, this frees up more of the budget for special effects. In this version Peck doesn't work for the EPA. He is a city councilman.

Eastwood and Siegel decided to work on a script from Lewis John Carlino about a highly professional and solitary hit man after the previous director, Michael Winner, abandonned the project in 1972 because of financing problems. Siegel initially wanted to cast Jan-Michael Vincent alongside Eastwood, but the latter convinced him to choose Jeff Bridges :

You had me at "Lars Von Trier's Ghostbusters". By the way the casting is perfect for his version of this movie. Though hopefully it isn't too gloomy more like The Kingdom, his Danish tv miniseries. Makes me want to try a Las Von Trier recasting of Taxi Driver.

post #2119 of 2486

Late 1983, Hugh Hudson was offered the chance to direct an adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs' books (the project later went to Michael Radford) but turned it down in order to make a movie about a futuristic dystopian society in which emotions are strictly controlled. The script is heavily influenced by the russian 1921 novel "We" from Yevgeny Zamyatin that inspired many western novelists. Hugh Hudson managed to film some scenes in the Berlin Stadium (West-Berlin) and hired many German actors :

 

 

EQUILIBRIUM (1984)

Directed by Hugh Hudson

Music : Klaus Dodlinger

 

 

"John Preston"

Daniel Day-Lewis

 

 

 

"Errol Partridge"

Jurgen Prochnow

 

 

 

"Vice-counsel DuPont"

Steven Berkoff

 

 

 

"Mary O'Brien"

Nastassja Kinski

 

 

 

"Andrew Brandt"

Trevor Thomas

 

 

 

"Jurgen"

Nigel Terry

 

 

 

"Father"

Ian Holm

 

 

*Trivia : In a public interview during the 1985 Berlinale, Hugh Hudson revealed that, in his first draft, Colin Welland, an avid fan of martial arts films, tried to include a innovative form of martial art "completely based around guns". Hugh Hudson, however, found the idea "totally ludicrous".

Creature from the Black Lagoon

Chris Evans - Dr David Reed

 

Amy Acker  - Kay Lawerence

 

Aaron Eckhart - Dr Mark Williams

 

Nestor Carbonell - Dr Carl Maia

 

Danny Trejo - Lucas

 

David Strathaim - Dr Edwin Thompson

 

Micheal Phelps - The Gill-Man in the swimming scenes

 

Derek Mears - The Gill-Man on land scenes

 

post #2121 of 2486

A Guillermo Black Lagoon with someone other than Doug Jones as The Gill-Man? For shame, Chaz.

post #2122 of 2486
Yeah and most likely the main lead would be Charlie Hunnam. Also where's Ron Perelman? And instead of Eckhardt I'd go with Idris Elba. And Jeffery Tambor would probably be somewhere in this for comic relief.
post #2123 of 2486

Ha, I laughed at Aubrey Plaza as Janine in Ghostbusters. That's perfect.

post #2124 of 2486

 Doug Jones doesn't have a gold medal and Mears will look big and imposing on land.

 

While I was day dreaming that cast, I thought of doing Rob Zombie's Creature from the Black Lagoon. Of course in his version, the lagoon is part of a trailer park in the Florida panhandle.

Roles trivia

Studio doesn't want Daniel Day-Lewis to play as Ricky Roma as he's not American, they preferred Sean Penn or Brad Pitt but Martin Scorsese convince them that Daniel Day-Lewis was his only choice for Ricky Roma

Jack Nicholson was cast as Shelley Levine but was fired by Martin Scorsese because he was too crazy to play a normal character

Leonardo DiCaprio turned down Dave Moss but recommend Matt Damon for the part

Jon Favreau originally audition for George Aaronow but was reject by Martin Scorsese as he think he too young for the part

Matthew McConaughey was cast as John Williamson but dropped out due for being typecast as a man who wear glasses

Jude Law and Mark Ruffalo were both considered for Blake but was beat by Mark Wahlberg due for his performance in The Departed which make him a perfect choice for Blake

The cast is terrific, I'd watch this in a second to see them all performing that material against one another. But after seeing HBO's version, with its huge budgets and modern visual effects, I don't know if the '70s BBC could bring the world to life in an effective way. I mean, I love the hell out of the Beeb's I, Claudius, but it's nothing but actors on sound stages, which is OK for the story it's telling (same goes for Elizabeth R.The Six Wives of Henry VIIIThe First Churchillsetc.), but they could never pull off something like HBO's Rome. (Hell, in the end, neither could HBO!) I just don't think the story could effectively be told in a talky, stage-bound format, which is all those '70s BBC mini-series could afford.

 

But as long as we're fantasy-casting, we might as well be fantasy-budgeting as well, so I say give the Beeb $100 million and 21st-century technology and let's do this thing!
