Casting a Remake: True Romance

Playing Remake with one of my all time favorites, True Romance. Quentin Tarantino wrote the action/romance about a comic book shop worker and a new escort in the nineties. They have a crazy whirling romance with a happy ending. “You’re so cool.”

Clarence- Liev Schreiber

Liev can do some high class crazy eyes, and he can out Slater even Christian Slater. No matter what he does, no matter how far off the edge he goes, I still adore him. Liev is magic.

Alabama- Elizabeth Olsen

Elizabeth totally has the skills to go full on Alabama Worley, and make it her own. Plus I have the feeling her chemistry with Liev would be tremendous.

Dick Ritchie- Ken Marino

Ken is a master at bringing more to the best friend/goof roles.

Drexl- Alan Tudyk

There is no other that can take over for Gary Oldman. I would love to see Alan in a showdown with Liev:)

Clifford Worley- Brendan Gleeson

Brendan can face off against Vincenzo and play father to Clarence perfectly.

Vincenzo- Christian Slater

Yeah, I needed to pull Christian back in. He’s been killing it in Mr. Robot, and is more than capable of going Christopher Walken.

Producer- Patton Oswalt

The buyer for the mistakenly stolen case of cocaine, and maker of shit movies. Love it for Patton.

Elliot-  Chris Gethard

Chris being number two to Patton Oswalt? Hell, yes.

Mentor Elvis- Timothy Olyphant

Timothy could so be imaginary Elvis.

Dick’s Roommate- Sam Riley

The small Brad Pitt role is well suited to Sam.
