Sir Percy Day – Part Four: ‘The Scarlet Pimpernel’ Reboot Dream Cast
Some of you may have heard that there was going to be a reboot of The Scarlet Pimpernel. Some of you also may have heard that the reboot has since been cancelled. (Yikes. The sound of your weeping can be heard above my Josh Groban albums.)
Have no fear, however. I think that if we Leaguettes keep posting about how much a reboot needs to be done, someone will make it. After all, we started The TSP1982 Project… and it happened. (Be sure to check out the trailer on the movie’s Amazon page! It’s awesome!!) *Insert screams about it coming out again in THREE DAYS!!!!!* (See Ally’s awesome and squeeeee-y post here.) As you see, we’ve got friends in high places. (If only I knew who they were….)
While we’re waiting, we might as well give them some ideas about casting, right??? (The readers of The Day-Dream have already voiced their opinion. The Dream Cast below is all my own making and is not endorsed by The Day-Dream, blah, blah, blah.)
Sir Percy Blakeney
Doesn’t he totally look like Anthony Andrews? See here if you don’t believe me.
She’s so pretty…. Loved her as Natasha Rominov/Black Widow in The Avengers and the Iron Man movies!
The man can do evil. Don’t believe me? Watch him in Captain America: The First Avenger.
Armand St. Just
Suzanne de Tournay
Count and Countess de Tournay
Anthony Andrews and Jane Seymour
Baron de Batz
Heehee…. I did this for the sole reason that he would be able to say the line, “To think that I would be in league with the Scarlet Pimpernel!”
The Dauphin (Louis the IDK)
He may be a little old…. Whatev. Believable young boy actors are hard!
The Prince of Wales
Varous members of The League
Daniel Vincent Gordh
(I don’t mind who the casting director picks to play the other members of The League. Just as long as they’re good actors and have read the book and seen the movie.)
Wow. That was more fun than it should have been. : D Also, this looks like a mix of all of my favorite movies! Les Miserables meets The Lizzie Bennet Diaries meets The Avengers meets The Hobbit! That’d be so awesome.
What do you guys think? Am I missing anybody – either an actor or a character???
