Madonna to remake classic film
IT'S fair to say Madonna's film career hasn't been that successful, but the Material Girl keeps trying.
Reports from Britain suggest she is hoping to do a remake of the classic film Casablanca.
Madonna is reportedly hoping to film it in Iraq, and play the lead role of Ilsa Lund, which was made famous by Ingrid Bergman.
Madonna isn't phased that most of her films have been turkeys.
A source from a major Hollywood studio the singer had approached said it would be difficult to get the project going.
"She is still determined to make it in the movies," the source said.
"She and her representatives have been touring around a project, which is a remake of Casablanca.
"The reception has been lukewarm to say the least.
"No one can understand why she wants to redo what many people consider the greatest film of all time."
Madonna, 49, is in the middle of a promotional blitz to launch her album Hard Candy.
Is in no way, shape, age or form remotely close to Ingrid Bergman.
Im sorry, Maybe 20 years ago she could have pulled it off and gotten one or two positive reviews, but not now, not today. I mean honestly, can anyone truthfully say she even compares to the grace and beauty of Ingrid Bergman?
#2, "Casablanca" is a classic, and along side movies like "Citizen Kane" and "gone with the wind", they are timeless. none of them ever need to be remade, they're pertfect in their original form.
#3 How on earth, are they going to find someone to cast in Bogey's role? Come on!! His name is synonymous with this movie!! It just cant be done!
#4 This sounds like a political vehicle pure and simple. I personally dont see anything good coming out of this.If they even seriously consider this, they might as well go ahead and cast Michael Jackson for the part of Rick, because its just going to end up as a really bad idea anyway..
