You need a Nebbish, the Devil, the love interest, an angel and the Seven Deadly Sins.
In the original, They got Rachel Welch to play Lust. Is there anyone today that really stands out for that role? You think about the original and you think "Well of course they got Rechel Welch, who else would you get?" Does anyone today really stand out like that?
Brendan Frasier, much as I love him, doesn't work as the nebbish. He's too handsome.
The cast of the old and new versions follow. Who would you cast in each role?
The new version doesn't even have cameo appearances by the sins, so they'll be left blank. I include the list from the old cast so you can look them up and see what they looked like if you want to.
