I’m very excited for this. I hope it will work.
This would be my dream cast:
Nora: Glenn Close
Joe: Chris Pine
Max: stanley tucci
Betty: Anne Hathaway or amanda seyfried
Cecil: I have no idea so I’m just going to say Paul Schoeffler since he was in the recent Broadway revival
Artie: jake gyllenhaal
Sheldrake: Hugh Jackman
Manfred: Nathan Lane
For the film’s commercial appeal, I guess it would have to depend on what cast they would assemble around Glenn Close as well as Paramount’s release strategy. They could release it in select cities, then expand it into more theaters if it winds up being successful enough.
I personally would like to see Jake Gyllenhaal as Joe Gillis with Lily James as Betty Schaefer.
