Gone with the Wind... who would you cast now?

Inspired by the Leslie Howard thread. Frankly, I have no ideas. But who would you cast... based more on talent than fuckability, because I will produce my grandfather's sword from the Mexican Wars if one you bitches inserts Channing Tatum into this...

Oh, I did just get an idea... Lara Pulver for Scarlett. She played Irene Adler in an episode of the UK Sherlock and rocked it. But she's early thirties and maybe too long in the tooth, given HD.

Love Hamm as Don Draper, and I think he has a ton of potential in many hot, sexy (and potentially funny, since he's shown us that side on SNL and elsewhere) roles ... but not as Rhett.

Hamm's sexual-ness is too studied ... too intellectual. Rhett needs to exude sex without intention.

Fassbender is still the best suggestion so far.

Jennifer Lawrence is a GREAT idea for Scarlett.

Remember, the novel starts with " Scarlett O'Hara was not beautiful but men seldom realized it when caught by her charm as the Tarleton twins were. In her face were too sharply blended the delicate features of her mother, a Coast aristocrat of French descent, and the heavy ones of her florid Irish father. But it was an arresting face, pointed of chin, square of jaw. Her eyes were pale green without a touch of hazel, starred with bristly black lashes and slightly tilted at the ends. Above them, her thick black brows slanted upward, cutting a startling oblique line in her magnolia-white skin-that skin so prized by Southern women and so carefully guarded with bonnets, veils and mittens against hot Georgia suns.”

Vivien Leigh wasn't ideally cast, looks-wise, as Scarlett. And although Lawrence is certainly attractive, she'd be closer to the book's description.

Y'all seem to need reminding that Scarlett ages from 16 to about 28 in this story.

Vivien Leigh was 25 when they started filming and it took two years, so she was at the upper end of credible even in those days. (They re-shot the first scene at the end, so she's actually at her oldest there.) A lot of Scarlett's behaviour can only be understood by so much happening to her when she is so very young. If anyone was mad enough to remake this movie, a theatre actress fresh out of drama school is called for.

Rhett is 45 at the end of the novel, from memory. (A lot older than Scarlett, but not old enough to be paying to sleep with Stockard Channing, R38, wonderful woman though she may be.)

Stop spreading misinformation, r72.

They shot the "burning of Atlanta" on December 10, 1938 (before Leigh was cast). Principal photography started on January 26, 1939, and finished six months later, June 27, 1939. They had reshot the opening scene toward the end of the shot, but because Selznick thought Leigh looked too tired, they reshot it again a couple of months later, after she had rested (and with her wearing the white dress. The original take had her in her barbecue dress).

The film was previewed twice, in Riverside and Santa Barbara, in Sept. Post-production was finished in early Nov, and it was premiered on December 15 in Atlanta.

Where do you get "took two years to film" from?

She can do almost anything she wants yet Scarlett who is a much bigger whore than Belle only gets freedom when she marries and marries and marries and marries.

[quote]If they want to make a film like GWTW, they should do Belle Watling's story. I thought she was the most interesting character in the book and film and they marginalized her.

Likewise, I was always fascinated by Scarlett's mom's backstory. In the book we learned that her marriage at 15 to the much older (28 years her senior) Gerald O'Hara was one of convenience. Her true love had been her wild cousin Phillipe Robillard, with whom she had a clandestine affair since they were forbidden to be together. He was killed in a bar fight, and in her grief she accepted Gerald's proposal in order to escape home. Her dowry included Mammy, who had been her nursemaid, and, of course, would become her daughters' and grandchildren's nurse, too. Scarlett is born the following year, which makes Ellen a mere 32 at the start of the war. Then Suellen and Carreen follow in quick succession, making Ellen a mother of 3 by age 20. In "Gone with the Wind," Ellen is the opposite of Scarlett -- stoical, self-sacrificing, a model of decorum, and resigned to her fate. It would be interesting to see how she became that way. Also, she always carried a torch for Phillipe and she died uttering his name. Really a tragic love story.

"Too many of today's male leads lack that very male brute sex vibe and are more pretty handsome."

Daniel Craig has that brutal masculinity in spades. What he lacks is Rhett's lighter side, the charm and humor that allowed him to move through all levels of society.

Gable had that in spades, he could be very funny when he wanted to. I haven't seen that from Craig.

A remake based on a racist book? I think you'll have to be satisfied with the 1939 version because there is never going to be a remake of GWTW. Ever. Unless, we reverse the casting, and have black actors play the white charactersand white actors play the black characters. Any ideas?

I think Scarlett had complete self respect. She admired what she did in the material sense. Her unhappiness was her limited insight into human nature.

I always thought Butler's relationship with Belle Watling was because Belle was a middle class girl who got in trouble, causing the duel that forced Rhett from Charleston. But I always imagined the boy Belle had was not Rhett's but his brother's and Rhett somehow got fucked over covering for him.

She will have...SO many boyfriends, and men in love with her, and she will show her mettle as a survivor, her toughness when making businessd decisions, her ability to exploit situations for her own gain, all the while batting those delectable eyelashes and pretending to be SO SURPRISED!

We'll make it a musical, since she wrote the lyrics for the GWTW Theme the very first time she saw the movie when she was 11!!!

The role of Melly will show us her softer side, but also the resilient core and her passionate loyalty to all she loved! Her death scene will shake audiences to the core. TO THEIR CORE!

We could go for an all Latina cast, since they are a HUGE underserved demographic.

We'll and set it against the backdrop of the war for Texas ...or California.

JLo as Scarletta.

We get a real Gringo for the Ashley character.

Antonio Banderas as Geraldo

Melanie Griffith as Belle Watling

Salma Hayek as Ellen

Penelope Cruz as India Wilkes. (In this version, she successfully plots to kill Scarletta)

Javier Bardem as Rhett, who falls in love with India.

Actually that actor from Downton Abbey would be good for Ashley. The one playing Mary's wimpy husband.
