I'd remake "Valley of the Dolls" but have it way more like the book (the book is pretty good, the movie is over-the-top horrible, but in that really great train wreck kind of way). Denise Richards could play Jennifer North (Sharon Tate's character in the original), Jordanna Brewster as Anne Wells (Barbara Parkins) and Britney Spears as Neely O'Hara (Patty Duke).
I'd also like another crack at adapting "The Sun Also Rises," it's my favorite book and the '50s version did not do it justice. I think Kristin Scott Thomas would be excellent as Lady Brett.

I dunno, a remake... Id do my own film. The great films i know dont really need a remake (can only get worse than the original), and Im not interested in remaking the not-that-great flics... oh wait a minute.

Id choose a film like Purple Rain or Studio 54. Purple Rain too many artist clichs, Studio 54 not tuff enough.

Id prefer to create my own, though.

I'd take Robin Williams out of "Insomnia" and put in someone less annoying. Don't know who yet.

I'd remake all movies and have them star Viggo Mortensen.

(nah, I just had to say it. )

Ok, I *love* the original, it's one of my favorite movies of all time. But, I would love to remake Dr. Zhivago so that I could put Goran Visnjic in the title role and Ioan Gruffudd as Pasha/Strelnikov.

I have no idea who I would pick for Lara or Tonia. I wouldn't mind playing one of them. (But I would probably drag my own remake to depths of crappiness, so I better cast someone else.)

I dont know who I'd pick as Komorovsky either. Someone better looking than Rod Steiger so that Lara's attraction with him makes slightly more sense. (I know it was primarily an age thing, but the book mentions he was handsome.)

I love the original though, I really do....

"Debbie Does Dallas" with Peaches and Princess Superstar.

But seriously....there is a play being made about this old porn film. Did you know that?
