Do you think Cameron Diaz would make a good `Maria` in a remake of the Sound of Music?

Why does every movie have to be remade anymore?

Yeesh.

16 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Wednesday 11/30/05 - 6:14:59 AM EST (GMT-5)
no, dear oh dear
16 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Wednesday 11/30/05 - 6:19:27 AM EST (GMT-5)
Julie Andrews said that??! Was she drugged at the time?

Can you imagine if they re-made The Sound Of Music? It'd be full of rap, hip-hop and Greenday would play in the Festival at the end.

Yeah, I agree that the movie shouldn't be remade, but if it were, I think she'd be alright. She seems kinda quirky in real life, and I get that impression from Maria.
16 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Friday 12/2/05 - 6:30:43 PM EST (GMT-5)
Please no. Please.
16 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Friday 12/2/05 - 6:30:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
She's certainly chipper enough to be a nun, but I don't want to see her play one.
16 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Friday 12/2/05 - 6:34:38 PM EST (GMT-5)
no no no. julie andrews HAD to be mis-quoted. why would anyone think that Diaz would be the right choice.
16 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Friday 12/9/05 - 11:16:48 PM EST (GMT-5)
Diaz is just too....happy all the time. I know Maria was happy too, but it just doesn't fit.

lol yeah I was just about to say was she on crack lol

She looks the part. I don't think she could do it in that outfit on the left, though. She'd have to "un-sexify" (if that makes sense) herself a bit.
16 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 12/11/05 - 11:13:38 PM EST (GMT-5)
I wouldn't go see it if she played Maria.
16 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 12/12/05 - 4:33:06 AM EST (GMT-5)
Hah, I have never thought of a remake before. Which is weird of me, because I constantly think of the Sound of Music.
Honestly I can never imagine anyone else playing Maria, let alone anyone else playing the Captain and the seven children... But it would be fun to watch, all the same!
I don't know about Cameron Diaz, though. Peut-etre. I like the Julie chose someone to play another Maria though.
16 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 12/12/05 - 4:55:13 AM EST (GMT-5)
Leave the movie alone......and Cameron Diaz would be totally inappropriate.
16 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 12/12/05 - 5:19:53 AM EST (GMT-5)
Please no. That is one movie that should never EVER be remade.

I think Hollywood should stop recycling old movies and start making more original ones.

16 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Friday 12/16/05 - 10:55:38 AM EST (GMT-5)
no bad idea

Can she even sing? Lord knows her boyfriend cant.

Just to clarify, Julie Andrews did NOT say that Cameron Diaz would make a good Maria. It was entirely misquoted (I think). She chose Cameron Diaz to be the actress in a movie of her own life, but not for Maria in Sound of Music.

In fact, she chose Anne Hathaway as Maria. Crazy enough. I know they worked together in the Princess Diaries... but... to choose her as Maria?!

It might work....maybe.

Anne Hathaway has that "wholesome caregiver" look, and she might do a good job if she were ten years older (she looks too young to be anyone's nanny right now).

I can't think of another well-known young actress who would be nice in the role.

16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 1/4/06 - 11:45:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
no she doesn't look innocent enough.
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 1/5/06 - 6:48:32 AM EST (GMT-5)
Hell no.
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 1/5/06 - 7:12:10 AM EST (GMT-5)
Eh prolly not.
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 1/8/06 - 10:32:05 AM EST (GMT-5)
Why remake a perfect film?

It will be a disappointment to all.

16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 1/8/06 - 10:33:52 AM EST (GMT-5)
*screams*

NO NO NO NO!

16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 1/8/06 - 10:39:38 AM EST (GMT-5)
May be, I mean, she can play lodas of roles... I don't know...
Still, the question that everybody´s asking, why remake the movie?
