For as long as I can remember I've always had the habit of casting movies in my mind. Books I've read, hypothetical remakes, announced projects... Everything is fair game, budget is no concern, just who do I think would be really good in the roles. It may be for reasons of talent, looks, or whatever. It's time to open it up from an individual pastime to a team sport. Every so often (probably every other week) I'll post a new "movie" that needs to be cast and everybody can chip in with their ideas.
This was all inspired when Mrs. Hatrack was reading through the TV listings guide the other day, reading out what was on since I couldn't see the screen and she came across Ladyhawke. Which, naturally, raised the question of who we would cast in a remake. We'll kick things off this first week with Ladyhawke.*
I'll post my ideas in the responses so as not to influence your ideas. I've also included horrible choices that Hollywood execs would probably come up with.
*The point of these posts is not to discuss whether a thing should, could, or would happen. If you want to discuss the relative merits of beloved old movies vs. remakes you'll have to write your own post. My only rule is that you stick to the task at hand: casting movies/TV shows.
