Musing with @DawnCloud during the TLA lonely hours .. fueled by my afternoon of classics and my asking her what Tidal is/was?!
  1. Jay-Z as Rick, Rihanna as Ilsa and Kanye as Laszlo ...and starring John Legend as Sam
    This remake which @DawnCloud is co-producing is very street, very much like those early 00's dance-off movies ...and it cannot be called Casablanca.
  2. Comedy remake: Kirsten Wigg as Ilsa, Jon Hamm as Rick and Seth Meyers as Laszlo ...and starring Robert Downey Jnr as Sam
    It'd be an Bachelorette reunion. Plus Seth's straight man would kill the Laszlo role. ✌🏼️

  3. Star Wars remake: John Boyega is Rick, Oscar Isaac is Ilsa and Daisy Ridley is Lanzlo...featuring Harrison Ford as Sam.
    I don't feel like I need to explain this other Han Harrison would hate his role but do it anyway (like a grumpy old man). 🙌🏼

  5. Aussie edition: Chris Hemsworth as Rick, Liam Hemsworth as Victor, Cate Blanchette as Ilsa and Hugh Jackman as Captain Renault.
    The whole movie is set in Summer Bay with a definite beachy theme.
