Cast This: Mister Sinister

It was only a matter of time before we were given the task of casting Nathaniel Essex aka Mister Sinister . His inclusion on the big screen was finally hinted at during the mysterious post-credit scene for X-MEN: APOCALYPSE with the reveal of “Essex Corp,” which naturally means the villain is on his way, but to which film? Writer/producer Simon Kinberg and director Bryan...

Cast This: Annie Wilkes

The casting of one of my favorite on-screen villains and performances isn’t’ going to be easy. I don’t believe this movie is even up for a remake at the moment, but you know how it goes, it’s going to happen eventually. I was watching MISERY the other night for the hundredth time and realized that Annie Wilkes still scares the shit out of me. I got to thinking of...

Cast This: Lisa (Weird Science)

It’s been awhile since we looked at re-casting a movie that initially served no purpose other than to make us laugh, and for boys to find a purpose for the pause button. I’m talking about the John Hughes 1985 classic WEIRD SCIENCE and its real star, Lisa. She’s a beautiful and intelligent woman with seemingly endless powers created after two horny guys hook...

Cast This: Tony Montana

The remake of SCARFACE is still lingering in the air as just this week we learned that Antoine Fuqua might be sitting in the director’s chair when cameras finally roll. The third take on SCARFACE would take the premise of an immigrant rising to power from his meager beginnings into modern-day L.A. So now someone is stuck with the task of trying to find the new Tony Montana...

Cast This: Clarice Starling

Clarice Starling is a fictional character that appears in the novels The Silence of the Lambs and Hannibal by Thomas Harris . She probably best known from the film adaptation of THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, where she was played by Jodie Foster (who received an Academy Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role for her performance), while in the film adaptation of HANNIBAL, she was played...

Cast This: Squirrel Girl

In this edition of Cast This we will be looking at casting Marvel’s Squirrel Girl ; the comic book series star has been making headlines as of late thanks to actress Anna Kendrick eyeing the role that hasn’t officially been called for yet. Doreen Green, known as Squirrel Girl, is a human superhero with the proportional strength and speed of a squirrel, as well as...

Cast This: Captain Nemo

In this edition of Cast This we will be looking at casting one of the most famous literary characters of all time, Captain Nemo. The fictional character, created by the French science fiction author Jules Verne, has been in print as well as stage and screen. He’s know the world over as one of the best known antiheroes in fiction; he’s a mysterious figure who has been...

Cast This: Shazam!

In 2019, we will be graced with a big screen adaptation of the DC Comics hero Shazam! The only real item of note that has been announced is that Dwayne Johnson will be playing main antagonist known as Black Adam. While the movie is still three years away, meaning a lot can change between now and then, it wouldn’t hurt to go to the drawing board with some suggestions as...

Cast This: Joel and Ellie of The Last of Us

It was over two years ago when it was announced that Sam Raimi would be producing the movie adaptation of Naughty Dog’s critically-acclaimed action-adventure survival horror video game, The Last Of Us . Since then, we haven’t heard much about the project except that it’s not moving very fast . Regardless, we can certainly do the work for them when it comes to...

Cast This: The Riddler

With news that Ben Affleck will direct and star in the next standalone Batman movie , the first since Christopher Nolan ’s THE DARK KNIGHT RISES in 2012, it’s no surprise that there are already rumors swirling about a potential villain or even villains to go up against the caped crusader. Before things get too out of hand, I thought I would slow things down with a...

Cast This: Uncharted's Nathan Drake

If you have had any interest in videogames over the last decade you should have come across or at least heard of the Uncharted series from Naughty Dog. The action/adventure series exclusive for PlayStation is one of the most popular titles today and so it’s no surprise that a movie adaption has been talked about for years. With the next installment in the game series just around...

Cast This: Shaft

In 1971 a little movie called SHAFT, directed by Gordon Parks , was released and, subsequently, gave prominence to the American Blaxploitation genre making Detective John Shaft a household name. Fast forward 45 years and we’re on our way to a reboot! The original film is mostly an action piece with elements of film noir that follows the story of private detective, John...
