My Own Pride & Prejudice Movie

So a friend of mine offered an interesting proposition, if you were to make your own movie version of Pride & Prejudice who would cast for the roles? I've got a pretty thought-out list that you're more than willing to comment on :)

Emily Blunt, Emma Watson or Rachel Weisz as Elizabeth Bennett

Gerard Butler as Mr Darcy

Matthew Lewis as Mr Bingley

Meryl Streep or Emma Thomspon as Lady Catherine DeBurg 

Kate Winslet or Naomi Watts (or Emily Blunt if she's not cast as Elizabeth) as Jane Bennett

Liam Neeson or Hugh Laurie as Mr Bennett

Clive Owen as Mr Wickham

Cate Blanchett as Ms Bingley

Whaddya think? :) Let me know what your thoughts are. As far as the other characters like the rest of Elizabeth's sisters and Mrs. Bennett, I haven't thought that far ahead yet. But I think I'd do a damn better job than the last unfortunate rendering of Jane Austen's best work. No offense Keira.



  1. HAHAHA!! Keira wouldn't have done so badly as Jane if the moron they hired as a screenwriter had left JANE AUSTEN'S DIALOGUE ALONE!!!

    Fun choices!

  2. Ooops--I mean as Elizabeth. You know what I mean. *sigh*
