Remaking What Ever Happened To Baby Jane?: My Casting Choices

Welcome to Day 11 of Spooky Season!! For today’s remake post, I picked out the next film my horror friends opted for, What Ever Happened To Baby Jane?! This was such a heartbreaking horror film, filled with dread and frustration. It also brought one of the most memorable feuds in filmmaking history. I really wanted to pick a cast I think could do this film justice, much like the original cast did, and I think I did a decent job this time! If you’d like to check out my other remake articles, you can click here! Also, let me know who you would cast in the comments! (REMINDER: this is just hypothetical fun! I love and respect everyone mentioned and this series isn’t meant to tear anyone down or be disrespectful!)(I also don’t know a lot of child actors, so I had to omit young Jane and Blanche from this article).
