Well, was only a matter of time. Guy Ritchie is pretty out of left field though.

Sherlock Holmes was good enough that I trust the man.

I've heard it said that Guy Ritchie has had all his edginess sanded off so thoroughly that you could roll him into a room. I felt like that applied to the Man from Uncle especially, and this further supports that.

This ain't the Snatch director, not anymore. Could be a fun film though.

Priyanka Chopra is a pretty good candidate for the look of Jasmine. She has a Bollywood background, so she probably can sing.

I was thinking maybe Freida Pinto for Jasmine. To comply with rule 1...

At the very least, Guy Ritchie will deliver a great magic-carpet chase scene

Could we get Chris Kattan as Apu?

Would have to be a very very different character for that to work.

Bernie Mac would have been a good genie.

I bet they pick someone younger for Jasmine. She was supposed to be 15 in the original movie I thought.

Since there is no one who could possibly replace Robin Williams as the Genie..........I hope that they don't try. Just make the Genie fun and funny; but don't try and have the new actor throw in the Jack Nickolson impressions or current topical jokes. Just make him funny.

Agreed. They might go an entirely different route. Maybe something like this? (Which I actually kind of dig, provided they're going in a musical direction.)

I think that depends on the quality of actors that there is at that age. With voice acting like in the animated movie, that wasn't an issue.

The genie roll is almost too obvious... Sherlock's own Robert Downey Jr.

(would take Louis CK in a heartbeat, though, Brian)

So far Disney has done modern, live-action remakes for...

- Cinderella
- The Jungle Book

... with live-action films in development for...

- Beauty and the Beast (2017)
- Cruella (2018 - aka, a 101 Dalmatians prequel or sequel starring Emma Stone)
- The Nutcracker (2018 - another huge cast)
- Aladdin (TBA - directed by Guy Ritchie)
- The Lion King (TBA - directed by Jon Favreau)
- The Little Mermaid (TBA)

So what else besides Pocahontas?

Sleeping Beauty? Lady and the Tramp? An American Tale?

Disney kind of sort of already did it with 2000's Dinosaur, but I would also watch the sh*t out of a Land Before Time live-action remake...

I thought Disney was in legal dispute with Robin Williams estate that prevented from using any of his lines from the original and that was a deal killer. Are they going to do a remake without Friend Like Me or Prince Ali?

Kevin Hart would be a good genie.

But we are missing the most obvious choice:



I'm guessing that you can't have a black Genie though b/c of the whole slavery thing.

I almost feel like Ben Kingsley needs to be Jafar, just to make up for Iron Man 3 (he wasn't bad in it, just that the character twist was a let down)

Gilbert gottfried should reprise his role as iago

did the jungle book remake have songs? i never saw it, so just wondering. remake does not necessarily mean musical.
