Maybe even Ellen Page from Juno as a wise cracking Snow White!
For a more mature version however, definitely Anne Hathaway. Perfect! Ooo! And what about Kiera Knightly? Natalie Portman is expecting so no go on that.
One studio has been letting it be known for a while that Kristen Stewart has been their choice for Snow White! What? Wait, wait! You mean the same Kristen Stewart of Twilight? What are they thinking? Kristen is a highly paid actress who does not really act. Yet, movie-goers continue paying to watch her not act. *Read my discussion group report below.* In, my opinion Kristen’s on screen presence consists of sulking, quite bewildered , pissed off and wait for it…….rigidity. This is not really a review of Twilight. I am talking about a new Snow White. The role could be best played by a young fresh upcoming actress.
2. Wicked Queen Angelica Houston has my vote
or ……Sigourney Weaver would be superb.
Charleze Theron and Julia Roberts are being considered for this role. Eww!
3. Her Handsome Prince Alcott Matthew Goode from Leap Year. Cute and a nice speaking voice.
Or…. Steve Bacic from X Files and Andromeda. Cute huh!
This is a real dilemma though. I need help on this one. People are saying Johny Depp or Tom Hardy. No. That’s not going to work. Help! If the story is for young people, maybe Zac Efron? The peanut gallery wants Dear John actor, Channing Tatum? The prince role may just be the most difficult. Please, no more Disney people. Or, Twilight people.
4. Dwarf Posse
Those Marauding Barbarian Vikings from the Capital One Card commercials might be a good choice. With the help of CG they would be made much smaller. The Munchkins from the Wizard Of Oz are all gone now. Hmmm? And, please no one say Zack Galifianakis.
Well that is it for me. What do you think about the remake and casting suggestions? Leave your comments below. I would love to know what you think!
** Side Note: I will say it again. The same 20 people get 90% of the acting roles. Not all of the 20 can act in everything, right. C’mon movie execs. Put a fresh face out there for us movie lovers to watch.**
Group Review: **In the interest of fairness, I sat down with a few viewers, ages 14 to 62, to have another go at Twilight and have a bit of a discussion. Results: Some were remembering parts of the book to fill in dialogue and scenes from Twilight. So were they recalling scenes or having the book play out in their head? Some were caught up in the “love story” of Twilight. Me, I am still shocked Kristen made movie number 2 and so on. Same opinion as before.**
