10 Movies That Should Be Remade with Female Leads
Take note, Hollywood
The recent casting news from Paul Feig's all-female Ghostbusters reboot got us thinking: What other movies would be even better with gals in the lead roles? Without further ado, our remake wishlist.
Sorry guys, we want Rebel Wilson, Mindy Kaling and Chelsea Handler in our wolf pack.
"The Odd Couple"
Anne Hathaway's serious actress-ness and Jennifer Lawrence's total goofiness make them the perfect Odd Couple--47 years after Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau's version.
"Some Like It Hot"
Sure, Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis played women in the 1959 flick, but imagine the physical comedy potential of a Sandra Bullock-Leslie Mann remake.
We would watch Tina Fey and Amy Poehler read the phonebook together, so this one's a total no-brainer. Also acceptable: Fey playing the part as DeNiro.
Would kooky "it" girls Emma Stone and Rashida Jones not be the perfect Wedding Crashers?
Mind-blowing good looks: Check. Acting chops: Check. Our girl Charlize Theron would kill (sorry) Christian Bale's Patrick Bateman.
Any "Bond" Film
Yes, Halle Berry. Just yes.
Yes, many movies objectify women already. But can't we fight for better roles while simultaneously appreciating babes like Jessica Alba, Olivia Munn, Chrissy Teigen and Margot Robbie?
Real life pals (and noted pot enthusiasts) Drew Barrymore and Cameron Diaz would do so much justice to the roles originated by James Franco and Seth Rogen.
