Well consider this the ultimate “Big If True” rumor of 2020 so far. Today, completely out of left field, a Facebook user by the name of Ben Ashley shared this post to his personal page, which at this point has been shared 4.8 thousand times and counting:
It’s a bit hard to read above, so I’ll repost here:
“FUCKEN AWESOME !!!
Kate Hudson and Ann Hathaway are said to be reuniting for a remake of the 1992 dark comedy ‘Death Becomes Her’
The original Film directed by Robert Zemeckis, Focused on a pair of rivals (Meryl Streep and Goldie Hawn), who drink a magic potion that promises eternal youth, but experience unpleasant side effects when they physically die, becoming walking, talking corpses in the process.
Kate will be following her mother Goldie Hawns footsteps by playing Helen Sharp, whilst Hathaway will take over from Streep as the narcissistic actress Madeline Ashton
Robert Downey Junior takes over the role of Ernest Menville from Bruce Willis whilst Lady Gaga will play the mysterious and wealthy socialite Lisle Von Rhuman.”
I’m a bit skeptical about this one myself, as the closest thing I’ve been able to find linking Lady Gaga to Death Becomes Her is this random tweet about a fan who’s not referring to a remake, but rather Gaga’s newest album. In any event, whether or not this turns out to be true, there’s nothing saying that fans couldn’t wish this project into existence. After all, I do think the “leaked cast” would be spot on and deliver an entertaining remake!
What are your thoughts on this? Would you like to see this classic reimagined for a modern audience?
