Yep. You read that correctly. A Jurassic PARK remake. I read an article online (which I think is a pretty bogus blog) about a POSSIBLE JP remake. Emphasis on possible. I love Jurassic World, but not even THAT could live up to the original. (And all my friends know how much I love this franchise. So trust me on this.) "Yes trust. That's what friends do." Thank you Dory. Any who... back to JP. Nothing could ever live up to that movie, at least for me. The CGI and puppetry are just genius. Steven Spielberg is my literal hero because of this movie. Although if they did make a remake, and I know it would leave me disappointed, it got me thinking. Who would play the characters? All the legal metters with Universal could be dealt with by lawyers, but this is FANTASY! So don't judge me on my opinions.
So here is who I thought could play the parts of our beloved Dinosaur Survivors (and the non-survivors.) It might even be a little comedic.
Ok, lets start with these two. Dodgson was a criminal trying to steal dino embryos (#DinoLivesMatter) and our beloved Nedry was just trying to get a little extra cash for who knows what. They are both Evil in their own ways, but who are we to judge? They are fictional characters after all. (I'm still secretly trying to get over the fact that no one has found the shaving cream.) But I thought about two characters for these two. And I thought about two people who would make perfect candidates for these two spots.
So these two may not be perfect for "serious" roles. At least not in the same movie together. But hear me out! Channing Tatum is ALWAYS playing the good guy. He saved the president, caught bad guys, and superman! (his appearance on the LEGO movie) and I thought it would be cool to get his goody name off of him. And also the fact that he's a stripper in two movies. As for Jonah Hill, we love to see him as a nerd. But what about the nerdiest nerd hungry for money? I think he'd make this part his OWN. He's a comedic genius and would make a great 21st century Nedry.
Let's be honest, we all loved Ray Arnold because he was just awesome. He is my favorite character (ok maybe second) in the original. He was a loyal employee until his deathbed, literally. Who would be heroic enough to play Mr. Ray Arnold? Who is tech savvy enough with out being a complete nerd? Who is gong to be able to say "Hold onto your butts" with out dropping their cigarette butts? (its the 21st century, it'll probably be a vape pen.)
So given the fact that Kevin is pretty blunt when it comes to other people he doesn't particularly agree with (Hello Ms. Green) and given the fact that Ray Arnold totally had it in for Nedry, I think this would be quite hilarious. I mean, imagine Mr. Party boy Kevin Hart as a Computer Geek. I think the shoe might fit. He's just lucky he doesn't have to fit into the original costumes.
Well this is it for now. "What only two?" I know, I know. I hope I was able to satisfy your JP needs, for now at least. I will add more characters soon and don't forget to leave your opinion about a possible remake or my character choice. Bye for now!
