Remake of Whatever Happened to Baby Jane

Which version would you most like to see?

I'm surprised no one has made a musical out of this property yet.

There was a musical of it, with Millicent Martin. It played England and a production in Texas or something.

A gay version with Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen.

Who's Millicent Martin?

I'd like a dramatic version with Michelle Pfeiffer and Jessica Lange.

Inspired by the Midler and Karen Carpenter thread, THAT would have been good casting.

Karen Carpenter would have been right for a musical of The Glass Menagerie ("Blue Roses!")

A musical Glass Menagerie could be wonderful, like Grey Gardens!

Can Jessica Lange sing?

Reese Witherspoon and Lindsay Lohan

A remake for this movie would be a sacrilege! I definitely vote against it! STOP MAKING REMAKES FUCKING HOLLYWOOD. ALWAYS PAY YOUR DUES TO THE ORIGINAL!

Even though we had the TV version with the Redgrave sisters, Alice Ghostley as "Baby Jane" and Shelly Winters as "Blanche" would have been interesting two decades ago.

No, Shelley Winters as Jane and Debbie Reynolds as Blanche.

A dramatic version with John Travolta and Tyler Perry.

The classic (better) versions of "The Maltese Falcon", "Titanic", "Wizard of Oz", "A Star is Born" "The Fly" and "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" were all remakes.

another vote for Stewart and Mc-Ellen

A rock opera version with Madonna and Cyndy Lauper.

I'll wait for the Dakota Fanning/Abigail Breslin version in 2062.

An all black version starring Viola Davis and Mo'Nique (or Viola and Oprah).

Or an all black musical version starring Beyonce and Solange

Or an all black non-traditionally cast version starring Venus Williams and Serena Williams

Goldie probably could do a good comic version of Jane. She's certainly haggy looking enough for the part these days.

An overly serious Streep/Close version wouldn't work, and anyone who suffered through the endless Mildred Pierce miniseries knows why.

Jessica Lange that is all.

I prefer the drag queen remake:

A Muppet version with Bert and Ernie.

Liza and Joey Heatherton
