    Okay, so there's no remake in the works (consider the awful 1981 version!) but if there was who would be your contemporary dream cast?

    Off the top of my head the only clearcut choice would Lindsay Lohan as Neely.


    Tried posting in "Arts & Entertainment" but thread kept getting diverted to "All Things Gay."

    She can play herself...a mess.

    I can also see Patti Lupone as Helen Lawson...

    If I remember the book correctly, Lindsey would be a dead ringer for the part, except that I don't think Neely was a child star.

    I think in the book Neely was discovered at 17 whereas in the film Duke herself was 26-27. (Yeah, I admit it - I saw the film and read the book.)

    You can plug in most of the cast of "The Devil Wears Prada."

    Meryl Streep as Helen Lawson. Anne Hathaway as Anne Wells.
    Stanley Tucci as Lyon Burke, Gisele Bundchen can have the Sharon Tate role...
