Post Anything Goes Movie
They should make a movie of Anything Goes that is faithful to the current revival. They should also have Sutton Foster and Joel Grey reprise their roles while he is still alive.

I'd love to see a film version that utilizes both the plot and the songs (the 1936 film was true to the script..but used only 4 of Porter's songs and the 1955 version used alot of porter songs but invented a new plot). but i dont think sutton and joel, as good as they are would be right for the film. my choices would be..

ren - catherine zeta jones
moonface - joe pesci
lord evelyn - david hyde pierce
hope - scarlett johansen
e.j. whitney - robert morse
erma - jane krakowski

not sure on illy or mrs. h yet.

Great casting. Even though I never heard Joe Pesci sing, it could work.
