] ] If you had your druthers, whom would you cast in any or all roles in Emma?
] Just for fun... here's the casting designed to appeal to the unwashed masses... Sandra Bullock as Emma, Kevin Costner as G. Knightley, Tom Cruise as Frank, Mira Sorvino as Jane, Kathleen Turner as Mrs. Weston, Harvey Keitel as Mr. Weston, Charles Nelson Reilly as Mr. Woodhouse. We'll have to add a carriage chase for excitement, and maybe blow up the Elton's house. This should do great at the box office. -- Hey, if Jeremy Northam can chase giant mutant cockroaches in Mimic, nothing is sacred!
cool! i think you're close, bonnie, but don't follow the logic of blowing-up elton's house:-D make strawberry fertilizer out of knightley's pad: he does it himself but makes it look like retaliation from the chicken-thieves. that way, he scares the stink out of old-man woodhouse and has to shack-up with emma at hartfield, plus he gets the insurance money, thus avoiding the inevitable retrenchment required by the landed aristocracy. flawless, no?
