That sounds okay, but I would go younger. How about Tatum Channing and Nick Cannon? And instead of a black man entering the world of high finance, it's a white kid entering mostly black dance competitions.

Instead of old white dudes, it has rapping grannies?

Where's my money?

I don't think she has any.

I vote for Reese Witherspoon as Ophelia. Not sure why.

I think Ralph Fiennes would be an awesome Dr. Forbin.

I don't think Ghostbusters would work as a remake but i do think they could get in a whole new team of Ghostbusters. I think at one point Vince Vaughn was actually considered for Ghostbusters 3 as well as Chris Farley.

A remake of Trading Places? I'm all for it. Here is my cast:

Billy Ray Valentine: Tyrese Gibson

Randolph Duke: R. Lee Ermey

Mortimer Duke: John Turturro

Penelope Witherspoon: Olivia Wilde

Ophelia: Christina Hendricks

Coleman: Hugh Laurie

Clarence Beeks: Ray Romano

Any objections changes?

I would have Chris Rock instead of Chapelle but I like the other choices.
