Remaking Clue: My Casting Choices

Yes, today I’m discussing a very taboo subject in the film community – remakes! A few months back, I wrote a list of all of the actors I thought could successfully portray Halloween’s Dr. Samuel Loomis. Doing that was a lot of fun and I wanted to do it with full casts. A lot of the films I choose will most likely have remakes already released or in development, like Clue. This is strictly hypothetical and all in good fun.


I based my choices on age (my choices will at least have a 5 year range – younger or older – within the age of the original film’s actors), demeanor, and how I picture their performances overall. Also, unlike my Dr. Loomis article, I’m only picking actors and actresses who are still alive today. (Note: a couple of my casting choices do have a bigger age gap, but they were so perfect to me, I couldn’t exclude them). Let me know your thoughts on who you would cast!
