Movie Thursday: Glam Film/Glam Spy

                                         GLAMOROUS  FILM  REMAKE ?

                          Casablanca

           A remake of “Casablanca” with the war in Iraq as the plot or backdrop?….Roger Simon thinks there should be one.  Roger Simon thinks a “buck”  of Hollywood’s current  “anti-Iraqi-war trend” would “work” cinematically and (in addition) be “popular” and “profitable” as well (in movie speak “Boffo Box Office!”)….

        So, let’s say our financing is in place (Mr. Murdoch at 20th Century Fox would have the gumption and the dollars).  Next, are our “lists”.  Who would direct?  Minghella?  He made “The English Patient” (which was brilliant).  Nichols?  He just made “Charlie Wilson’s War” (which “is” brilliant).  And—there has to be a “leading man” and a “leading lady”.  Julianne Moore comes to mind (but she starred in the English war movie/love story “The End Of The Affair” opposite the handsome and talented Ralph Fiennes).  Kate Winslet also comes to mind.  She could be “paired with” Harrison Ford in the “male lead”.  (Cate Blanchett and Harrison Ford would also be “great casting”)….

        They say–you should “never” remake a “classic” but if anyone could do it Roger Simon could.  Roger is an Academy Award nominated screenwriter who worked with the “diva” of all “movie divas”  La Streisand!!!    Roger Simon  is also the CEO of Pajamas Media.  Will Roger be a “Pajama Mogul?”.  Read Roger’s article on the “new media” (click link below)
