So anyway, the movie would definitely have to be re-cast since we can't have a preacher's son committing adultery. Drinking and gambling are okay but adultery?
Since this is 2016 and there have been so many societal changes since the original movie, I thought a update there would be in order as well. Here in no particular order are my picks for the three main characters.
Playing Norma (not a misprint) Maclean would be...
Oprah Winfrey, Paul's sister.
Playing Paul Maclean would be...
The soon to be unemployed Barrack Obama
And last but not least...
Bill Cosby playing Preacher John Maclean (I understand it's been difficult finding work lately)
Just as a matter of interest in Brad's situation, Jennifer Aniston, Brad's ex was asked what she thought of the situation. Her response?
I'm thinking of starting a Go Fund Me account to get this project off the ground. Meanwhile, I'll be working on the script.
