live action disney hercules remake
no, hear me out. live action disney hercules that casts exclusively chaotic comedians.
- john mulany as hades, obviously
- stephanie beatriz as meg, also obviously
- the mcelroy brothers as the three fates
- ryan bergara and shane madej from buzzfeed unsolved as pain and panic
- bo burnham as hercules
- danny devito as phil
- jeff goldblum as zeus
nobody is really in character. everyone is playing themselves, regardless of how terribly their comedic presence interacts with everyone else’s. lotta ad-libbing.
but i hear you thinking: amanda, where’s the twist? aren’t you just shoving a bunch of comedians into a movie with no payoff?
the twist is this: you are only shown the titans in very stylized 2d art the entire field. it’s only near the climax that you actually see them in person, to reveal that… they’re played by the most normie celebs you can think of. jennifer lawrence. chris evans. scarlett johansson. ed sheeran. and they proceed to go absolutely fucking nuts on the world.
