Chim-chiminee-chim-chim-chiree! British actress Emily Blunt has landed the role of all children's favorite nanny, starring in the role of Julie Andrews in the Disney remake of Mary Poppins. Blunt will act under producers John DeLuca and Marc Platt with director Rob Marshall in creating a whole new spoonful of sugar.

But who will play the rest? As we all know, in every job that must be done, there is an element of fun. Here are some suggestions of actors capable of filling the enormous shoes left by the much-loved 1964 original.

Bert - Matthew McConaughey

Mr. Banks - Benedict Cumberbatch

Mrs. Banks - Scarlett Johansson

Jane Banks - Carey Mulligan

Filming the forthcoming sequel with its version of a certain flying nanny will begin later this year.

Who would you like to see in the next 'Mary Poppins'?
