IF IT WERE UP TO ME - Ladyhawke

Welcome to my new section on the blog called "IF IT WERE UP TO ME." in this section, what I will be doing is taking a classic movie from the 70s 80s or 90s and recasting it for a remake. This first one is the  1985 classic titled LadyHawke, starring Rutger Hauer, Matthew Broderick and Michelle Pfeiffer. Rating FOUR FANGS. At the time of filming Rutger was 41, Matthew was 23, and Michelle was 27, so we will stick with this formula for a recasting.

The Recasting!
So for our 2013 – 2014 remains will need to select a cast equal, if not better, than the original, in order to even have a chance at making a decent movie. For our tortured hero Captain Etienne Navarre, we need a rugged looking yet softhearted male lead. I can think of no better choice than:

Karl Urban

Everything matches with this pick. He is 41, rugged yet soft spoken, has has prior experience in swordplay films, LOTR, no brainer here.

Next our female lead, Michelle Pfeiffer is a tough act to follow, and choices in Hollywood today are slim pickings for actresses of her caliber and the beauty. Let's give it a shot shall we? My pick for the beautiful and beloved Isabeau d'Anjou is none other than:

Teresa Palmer

This South African beauty is also 27 and has had roles in such films as Warm Bodies, I Am Number Four, and the Sorcerer's Apprentice. I think she'd be a great fit into the cast, and possesses the acting skills needed to pull off the role. She also, looks like a beautiful and more talented Kristen Stewart.

The last pick for the trio was perhaps the hardest and most important pick of all.

The role of Philippe Gaston, or Philippe the mouse, had to go to just the right actor. He needs to be witty, funny, and a little bit awkward, yet charming. So without further ado, my Hollywood today pick would be none other than:

Logan Lerman

Mr. Percy Jackson himself. My pick of Logan had nothing to do with his Percy Jackson films, instead I mostly remember his portrayal of D'Artagnan in the recent incarnation of the Three Musketeers. His action sequences were good, agile and believable, and he also had a smart mouth to go along with his portrayal of the character.

Well there you have it, feel free to leave your thoughts and comments on my picks and would you pick if it were up to you.
