Suppose the classic Sidney Lumet film Dog Day Afternoon (1975) was remade for today. What cast would you choose for the film? For direction, I’d go with Martin Scorsese, the Safdie brothers or Derek Cianfrance. For Sonny, I used to draw blanks but I’m thinking of Joaquin Phoenix, James McAvoy (see: Filth, Split) or Robert Pattinson (see: Good Time). But for the rest of the cast, I’m stumped. Any suggestions?
