    I know that it is HIGHLY unlikely that this film will ever be remade, but if ti were, who would you cast in the main roles?

    I can’t picture anyone else as Travis Bickle to be honest. This is my all-time favorite film, I’ve seen it close to a hundred times.

    If this movie were to ever be remade (all powers forbid) I would actually like to see Robert De Niro play the role again. It would be astonishing seeing his take on the character today, maybe a somewhat senile retired veteran who is still shaken by flashbacks to Vietnam or Korea. Iris could also be aged-up as well.

    Just think of the media attention it would get.

    Just no.  It’s a perfect film and an encapsulation of life in America during a very specific time period, capturing the unspoken feelings of a post-Vietnam War country.  Scorsese’s direction and De Niro’s characterization are incredible, plus Herrman’s final score.  Any remake would be destined to fail.

    This sounds a little similar to a film made in 1970 called Joe, starring Peter Boyle.

    I think if they ever remake this, and they shouldn’t, the only person who could bring the intensity and brilliance to the role De Niro did would be Christian Bale, but we can argue that many of Bale’s films (American Psycho, The Machinist) are similar to Taxi Driver

    I think this brilliant film could be done again. The goal would be to capture the rage and isolation felt by a segment of contemporary society. To achieve that goal, I think a provocative film could be made with Melissa McCarthy as Travis Bickle. She is an interesting actress relegated to tiresome summer comedy fodder who I believe could be tremendous if allowed to explore the hostility of this character reconceived as an obese lesbian marginalized in urban NY.

    Please dm me with the name of the pills/acids that you’ve been taking. That must be one hell of a trip you’re on.
