I hope this doesn't happen with Barbara. I just don't see it.

I think Anne Hathaway would be a perfect Louise. And I like Barbra's idea of Tom Hanks playing Herbie.

I'm so glad this film is still on. Hopefully they do it kind of like the Bette Midler version was done. The original movie was a hot mess.

Wow Salome, talk about awful.

And you think the Bette Midler version was bad.

Meryl Streep, Anna Kendrick, and James Gandolfini would certainly be a travesty x100000000000

This is probably just going off of Smash, but McPhee would actually make a stellar Louise. Just saying. And though Hilty would be a to die for June, she doesn't look sixteen. I say, give it to an unknown.

Anna Kendrick is far too petite and no where near glamorous enough for the transformation. Just my opinion though. Like her and everything, but Louise wouldn't be a good fit. She'd actually be a better June.

McPhee is pleasant enough to watch on Smash but I highly doubt she would have the acting range to play Louise.

Personally, I think Natalie Portman would be just about perfect for the role.
