I’m about a few months too late, but I can’t say I’m happy hearing the news about a remake of the 1964 musical My Fair Lady, being in the works. And that Keira Knightley is being considered to portray Eliza Doolittle.
I was less thrilled when I found out that George Clooney and Brad Pitt are fighting over the role of Henry Higgins – and Brad Pitt wants Angelina Jolie to play Eliza Doolittle.
It just doesn’t hold any appeal. Perhaps I’m being too quick to judge, but I can’t see Keira Knightley or Angelina Jolie surpassing Audrey Hepburn’s performance. I can’t even think of anyone who would be suitable to play Professor Henry Higgins. I sure as hell wouldn’t choose Clooney or Pitt. The film just seems too iconic and already perfect the way it is, that a remake would just probably ruin the story.
…Of course, that’s just my opinion.
Oh, look. This is my last post for the month of October.
Perhaps you’d like some information on linear motion.
