Remaking Misery: My Casting Choices

We’ve now reached Day 19 of Spooky Season!! For this month, I asked one of my favorite groups, Room 237, to help me choose 2 films to pick modern casts for. For their second choice, they picked one of Stephen King’s best, Misery! Misery is a terrifying tale filled and it had the perfect cast to amplify its intensity. I made my choices based on age, looks, and how I picture their overall performance. I hope you enjoy and let me know who you’d cast! Also, if you want to see my previous remake articles, please check out my Remake Collection! (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!!)
