I am simultaneously excited and immensely aggravated that, yet again, a successful male-led franchise is getting a remake starring women because of dollar signs and not because Hollywood fully believes that women can carry a movie. If the vagina version is a hit, will people credit the men that started the franchise or the women that made the movie? Will women in Hollywood ever get to have a successful movie or franchise that isn’t a retread of a male dominated hit? WHEN WILL WE GET OUR DAY IN THE SUN?
Ahem. I digress.
Who wants to dream cast! OMG! I DO! IDO! I’ve got on my Deadpool jammie pants and Bane t-shirt, I’m eating ice cream, and I am ready to do this thing!
Anna Kendrick and Kristen Stewart
Listen, I would pay literally fives of dollars to see a re-pairing on this Twilight duo. Kendrick would take over the Charming Potato idiot role and Stewart would be the more serious of the pair. It works. Trust me. Give me money, Movie Type People.
Emma Watson and Rebel Wilson
Why? WHY NOT. I know I wasn’t the only one that rolled my eyes when Charming Potato and Jonah Hill were cast in the original. How in the hell would it work? I DON’T KNOW, BUT IT DID. SO CAN THIS.
Nathalie Emmanual and Emilia Clarke
Let’s go with more accents! I’m sure both actresses could use a break from all of the brutality of their Game of Thrones storylines.
Rye Rye and Dakota Johnson
Stay with me here: these two women were ALREADY IN 21 Jump Street: All Dick Edition. So why not just spinoff the franchise to two characters already in the world?
