Warner Plans Casablanca Sequel

Well, if it's going to happen, it's up to us to make sure they don't fuck it up completely.

What's the plot and who do we cast?

Plans are in process to make a sequel to the 1942 classic Hollywood film Casablanca.

Nearly 70 years after the release of the original film, plans are in process to make a sequel to Casablanca, the famous romantic drama starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman.

Current rumor is that Warner Bros is considering making a sequel to the timeless classic, entitled either Return to Casablanca or As Time Goes By.

Its plot revolves around Richard Blaine, the illegitimate son of Humphrey Bogart's Rick Blaine and Ingrid Bergman's Ilsa Lund, who were separated at the end of the original movie.

Blaine, who has been raised in the US by Lund and her husband Victor Laszlo, returns to North Africa to find out what became of his biological father.

First of all - casting. If they're going to mount some monumental shitfest, then at least get casting right. There better not be a Lohan or Efron in sight. And no Kristen Stewart either, for fuck's sakes.

Ugh! They will fuck it up. Bogart and Bergman were iconic and there is no one in Hollywood now with that "star" charisma.

With Isabella Rosellini as his MILF. What could possibly have attracted him to her.

I'll play along with a few questions for the screenplay writer:

Is the son a product of Ilsa and Rick's initial romance in Paris or is she pregnant by Rick when she boards the plane with Victor?

And if she's pregnant when she boards the plane, how do Victor and Ilsa know the son isn't Victor's?

What happened to Ilsa's gowns? Especially the white evening suit she wears into Rick's Cafe Amercain her first night in Casblanca.

They should set it after the zombie apocalypse.

Shia LaBeouf is probably already taking meetings.

I see Taylor Swift as a love interest. For all the men in the cast.

Or, alternately, Carrie Underwood right after she comes off filming The Sound of Music."

I don't even love Casablanca and I find this blasphemous. Not to mention unnecessary and uninteresting.

How about Christmas in Casablanca with the Griswolds?

[quote]Blaine, who has been raised in the US by Lund and her husband Victor Laszlo, returns to North Africa to find out what became of his biological father.

The kid is 20-25, which puts the story somewhere in the early to mid 1960's. The French left Morocco almost a decade before, and not much of anything is happening there. If Rick and Louie were still alive, they've probably been back in France for years.

I don't see where this story goes, unless you want to have an aging Rick and Louie move to French Indochina after WWII to run a bar in Saigon, and the kid gets drafted and shows up there on a weekend pass.

I wonder if the political correctness will demand that all the characters have quit smoking.

They should do a sequel to "Carrotblanca" instead.

Oh, another American propaganda film! Goody!

The only reason I'd ever see it is if Rick and Louis have settled down together, and are running Rick's Big Gay Cafe.

At a guess, it'll be what 'The Two Jakes' was to 'Chinatown.'

It will be an all-black cast.

I have the box sex. My favorite Casablanca artist was Donna Summer. The Captain and Tennille only had one hit with them.
