    I’d love to see a modern day version of What Ever Happened To Baby Jane with Viola as Jane and Angela as Blanche.

    I also would have liked to have seen real life sisters Phylicia Rashad and Debbie Allen play these roles.

    There is a TV movie with the Redgrave sisters (Lynn and Vanessa) playing the roles. Anyone ever see it?

    Yeah, I remember it because Mr Clamp (John Glover) was in it. He booked a lot of work after Gremlins 2: The New Batch.

    Khandi Alexander would be great too. She was so damn good in Scandal.

    Did y’all know she started out as a backup dancer for Whitney?

    I did. Far away from Bette & Joan

    Not good and overtly darker than the original.

    More like the other way around honey. Viola Davis only plays vulnerable characters, I doubt she does good with Baby Jane, Blanche suits her better. Angela Bassett was fully compelling as Marie Laveau, she’d be phenomenal as Jane.

    I wouldn’t call Annalise Keating or Veronica Rawlings vulnerable…

    I’d rather see a completely different story for Viola/Angela. There are SO many great stories that are waiting to be greenlit.

    I’m tired of black actors stepping to roles originally played by white actors. (unless its Shakespeare…im way more open to it). There are so many black creatives, producers, directors, and writers that are creating FRESH stories to be told.
