Rumor of the Moment: Madonna Wants to Remake ‘Casablanca’

Posted in Celebrity news with tags , , , on April 1, 2008 by funofmovie

Madonna Wants to Remake ‘Casablanca’Whenever I see one of these sorts of stories, my inner core of movie fandom shudders. What if THIS is the one that’s not a rumor?

The Daily Mail claims that Madonna is looking to remake Casablanca — not as a copy-cat Psycho redo, but modernized and set in Iraq. Their studio source says: “She is still determined to make it in the movies. She and her representatives have been touting 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.” Maybe because she’s crazy? Perhaps Swept Away … swept away more than just her remaining movie cred.

To top this off, she also wants to star in it, regardless of the fact that’s she’s nearing the big 5-0, and Ingrid Bergman was much, much younger. Then again, this is supposed to be modernized, so anything could happen! (If a studio is nuts enough to say yes. There’s a good chance every studio will run, and keep this just a rumor, but all you need is one interested person with enough money…)
Casablanca should stay in the ranks of history, and especially away from Madonna. However, what I would be interested in seeing is daughter Isabella taking on one of her mother’s iconic roles, even in a simple short film.
What do you think? Are you super-excited about seeing Casablanca: Iraq Style?
