A bit of fun! I always imagines who they would cast if they remade two of my favourite films; The Great Escape and The Magnificent Seven.

My remake dream cast would be...

The Great Escape

Brad Pitt as Virgil Hilts, "The Cooler King" (McQueen)
George Clooney as Hendley "The Scrounger" (Garner)
Damian Lewis as Roger Bartlett "Big X" (Attenborough)
Colin Firth as Group Captain Ramsey "The SBO" (James Donald)
Jason Statham as Danny "Tunnel King" (Bronson)
Cillian Murphy as Blythe "The Forger" (Pleasance)
Colin Farrell as Sedgwick "The Manufacturer" (Coburn)
Jürgen Prochnow as Oberst von Luger, "The Kommandant"
Andrew Garfield as Ashley-Pitt "Dispersal" (McCallum)
Paul Bettany as Andy 'Mac' MacDonald "Intelligence" (Jackson)
Dominic Monaghan as Archie Ives "The Mole" (Angus Lennie)
Benedict Cumberbatch as Cavendish "The Surveyor" (Nigel Stock)

The Magnificent Seven remake coming in 2015 apparently?

Clooney as Chris
Pitt as Vin (yes another McQueen role but no one else measures up imo)

and the rest...

Matt Damon as O Reilly (Bronson)
Josh Brolin as Luck
Christian Bale as Lee (Vaughan)
Russell Crowe as Britt (Coburn)
Shia Labeouf as Chico

Javier Bardem as Calvera (Wallach)

Anyway, who would you choose?

Here's another option and a personal favourite of mine, even if it is a bit hokey.

The Towering Inferno

Brad Pitt as Michael O’Hallorhan
Tom Cruise as Doug Roberts, the Architect
George Clooney as James Duncan, the Builder
Natalie Portman as Susan Franklin, Doug Roberts' fiancée
Jack Nicholson as Harlee Claiborne, the Con-Man who flirts with Mrs. Mueller
Jennifer Lawrence as Patty Duncan Simmons, James Duncan's daughter
Mark Ruffalo as Roger Simmons, the Electrical Engineer
Jessica Lange as Lisolette Mueller
Dwayne Johnson as Harry Jernigan, the Chief Security Officer
Don Cheadle as U.S. Senator Gary Parker
Sam Rockwell as Dan Bigelow, the Public Relations Chief
