Oh. My. God.

Madonna wants to remake Casablanca - and of all the places in all the world, she plans to set it in war-torn Iraq | the Daily Mail: "It is one of the greatest films of Hollywood's golden era, a triple Oscar-winning classic with electrifyingly charismatic stars and a script bursting with memorable lines.

But now Madonna has stunned the movie industry with plans to remake Casablanca – and this time set it in Iraq."

I hope Sting gets to play Rick.

Or maybe Bono.

I'm putting my foot down. I forbid this. (I have the authority to do that, right?)

All I can say is, "OH My God!"

Bill, I didn't rip your headline off. Honestly, I didn't notice it. It's just the way I feel.

We can all just hope that this movie plan, like so many others, falls through.

Can they get David Soul to reprise his role as Rick? Snoop Dogg will be Sam, of course, and Drew Carey will have the Sydney Greenstreet role. Louie, now, is a problem. I'm torn between method actor The Rock and noted thespian Billy Ray Cyrus. A few dialogue changes will be needed to appeal to modern audiences.
"Rap it again, Sam."

"Louie, I think this is going to be the start of a beautiful but platonic male bonding experience, not that there's anything wrong with being gay."

"You're getting on that low-fare jet, Ilsa, just as soon as you pass through the security checkpoints."

"Round up the usual suspects and apprise them of their rights."

"We'll always have Disney World."

If I were making the movie, Cap'n, I'd hire you to write it.

I hope Jack Black gets Claude Raines' old role.

Didn't Pamela Anderson already beat her to the punch with Barb Wire?

You think some enterprising entrepreneur would make a torture porn horror film where woman are killed in a very graphic manner and get Roseanne, Madonna, Paris, Lindsay and Britney to play the victims. I imagine quite a few people who abhor this type of film would pay to see these people "buy it".
