Can she sing?
Kate has a lovely voice........she sings in Romance and Cigarettes and had a big chart hit with 'What If'

I think Scarlett might be a better choice though........ :wink:

Imo Scarlett would be a total miscast. Sorry for that. :(

Kate Winslet sure can sing, she did it before. And she can play anything, realy ... I'd love to see her in this role. She has the voice, the skills, the vibe, the talent, the comedic talent, the ... she's has it all. :D She would rock with the red hair and the attitude. And ofcours, she had a realy good chemistry with Carrey before.

Yeah, 'Romance & Cigarettes' is a bit weird. ;)

Yeah Scarlett doesn't seem like the right fit for this movie. I wonder if they'll be able to sign Winslet. Not sure how much money they have to throw around (still need a director too).

So maybe we should discuss who should direct? IMHO if I were to cast a director it would be Burton. He did a great job with the Sweeney Todd Broadway musical.

Tim Burton is a very good director, but I have the feeling Musical isn't what he's best in. "Sweeney Todd" was good, sure, but nog one of the greatest in the genre. Burton can play with colors and settings and all that stuff, but for a musical it wasn't all that alive, you know. They were singing and the camera just kinda stood there, musical should be a world where everything is happening when people sing ... and here the visual part was a bit, well, boring. That realy suprised me with a man like Burton behind it. Same was going on in Charlie and the Chocolat Factory at some times.

The thing is that most of the real musical-director's are already six feet under. I wonder how it would be if someone like Henry Selick (Nightmare Before Christmas, Coraline) to make a live-action musical. (and then I think of 'Monkeybone', yuk) Or how about someone like -I know it's a weird choice- Brad Bird? He has a great vision. His animated things (The Iron Giant, Ratatouille, Incredibles, Best Simpsons episodes ever) look like there realy was a cinematographer, director and camera at the place working on the best shots. I'm just thinking out loud. Ofcours, I would like to see a name like David Fincher, Sam Mendes or whatever attached to this ... but how will they do with the genre?

Maybe Rob Marshall? That could work, no? He nailed it with 'Chicago' and is now working on 'Nine'. Who's in it? Daniel Day Lewis, ladies and gentleman. Also Nicole Kidman, Kate Hudson, Judi Dench, Penélope Cruz, Sophia Loren, Stacy Ferguson (Fergie) and Marion Cotillard. I have to say WOW! on that.

I thought Burton did a nice modern twist on a musical movie. I don't know, that's just me, I enjoyed it a lot.

But yeah I agree, I'd like to see the director of Nightmare do this.

I think this'll be a great remake....

As I listened to the Theatre Version, the songs would be better at a faster pace. The thing I liked in the Theater was the big bed but it should have been a water bed, more fun to bounce on, don't know if it would work though.
Lola should be played by Jennifer Lopez, she would be great, that's my opinion. Great singer, I think she could do the dancing also quite well, maybe try and bring Jake in on the attempt. This could be really funny if done right.
I liked the film version better.
I think it could be done very successfully if done right.

If Jennifer Lopez is playing in it, it might be the first Jim Carrey movie I'm not going to see with my arms wide open to embrace the movie. She's anything but a good actress, she can sing (I think), but hell ... let her stay away from Hollywood. But I respect your opinion, Canadian Jane. ;) If you feel like she's right, I'm not gonna take that away from you. :)

Get Jennifer L to talk to the greats ...

Postby Canadian Jayne » Sun Mar 15, 2009 1:32 am

Sophia Loren and Raquel Welch and Jennifer will do just fine.

Pffff ... Again a project that I lost faith in. His previous movies are mediocre in every possible way. I was realy hoping for Rob Marshall. All the other projects I lost faith in were of the list after a while ... bad sign?
