My Fair Lady REMAKE 2025!!!

Directed by Ari Aster

Starring Robert Downey Jr, Emma Stone, Michael B. Jordan, Matt Damon, Tina Fey, Awkwafina, Damon Wayans Jr., and Sam Neill as Colonel Pickering

Sir Kelsey Grammer was set to play Pickering but dropped out for the new Frasier

Why remake movies that were good adaptations? Remake those that were bad adaptations.

R2 It is My Fair Lady for the new millennium. It will also be less white and more accurate to the racial insensitivities of the Edwardian Era.

by Anonymousreply 3November 8, 2023 2:08 AM

The only casting worth anything is Sam Neill as Colonel Pickering, and even that is pushing it.

What role will Matt Damon be playing?

by Anonymousreply 5November 8, 2023 2:17 AM

There will also be new songs

by Anonymousreply 6November 8, 2023 2:17 AM

R5 I think this is the roll call:

Higgins- Robert Downey Jr.

Eliza- Emma Stone

Colonel Pickering- Sam Neill

Alfred Doolittle- Matt Damon

Mrs. Pierce- Tina Fey

Freddie- Michael B. Jordan

The Turkish guy at the ball is now a female Chinese role written for Awkwafina. She said she was excited to be in such a high caliber production.

Mrs. Higgin has not been cast, but there are rumors that Sean Young was in the studio,

Due to scheduling conflicts, Emma Stone has dropped out of 2025’s eagerly anticipated My Fair Lady remake from director Ari Aster. Negotiations are under way with Jennifer Garner to take over the role. Garner has never received an Oscar nomination. Aster told us, “I wanted to be a director ever since I was a teenager and watched and re-watched Elektra and 13 Going On 30. How is it possible that the Academy hasn’t even bothered to nominate Garner yet? It astounds me. She is an acting legend. I will make sure My Fair Lady is structured as a global showcase for her impressive on-screen range and singing ability”.

I'm sure this remake will be every bit as successful as the West Side Story remake.

La La Land proved conclusively that Emma Stone can't sing for shit, so now we want her in a role that taxed Julie Andrews? Plus she's a decade (at least) too old.

It's not as though the popular music world is short on guttersnipes you could cast.

Don't you mean Audrey Hepburn?

by Anonymousreply 39November 8, 2023 5:57 AM

Er, no, I mean the woman who made singing-Eliza famous, Julie Andrews. Who still found it quite tough, though of course she was doing seven or eight shows a week, not filming a movie.

Audrey Hepburn didn't have a prayer, but are you saying they're going to dub Emma? In that case, why not use someone young and pretty?

by Anonymousreply 40November 8, 2023 6:04 AM

Why can't they get a British actress? It would seem like they could do that. Jennifer Garner would be a disaster.

Brie Larson will replace Emma Stone!

The rest of the stellar cast includes Robert Downey Jr, Matt Damon, Sean Young, Damon Wayans Jr., Awkwafina, Michael B. Jordan, Tina Fey, and Sir Kelsey Grammer.

It IS in remission, but his doctors have told him it will not stay that way. That's what he said himself on the episode of Australian Story. If he's lucky, new treatments will become available the longer he hangs on, but if they don't the medium-term prospects aren't good.

There's no one around today who remotely approaches this level of talent. I don't know if it was pre-arranged, but here Julie appears to sing off the cuff while sitting in a chair for a Dick Cavett interview.
