I can name a ton on poor casting decision, but it is harder to find a replacement.

I'd replace Megan Fox with Kate McKinnon. Could have been a funny movie.

On the other hand it's not a comedy, but a crime story.

So I guess Betty Gilpin would be a better part for it. I saw her 

in The Hunt, which was a real nice fighting movie. It could have been

more sarcastic. So she would be my fav cast for the role.

Megan Fox is kinda unlikeable, it was a good film but it was hard to fully empathise with / root for her chararacter.

I guess The Intern

would have been even funnier with Regina Hall instead of Anne Hathaway.

Another good pick would Anna Farris have been. I like the comedic talent of both,

Hall and Farris. But I'd pick Hall.

In Grimsby, I would have like to see Jason Statham instead of Mark Strong. Ok, both can look very serious. But I have a better feeling about Statham. He proofed his comedic talent in Crank, which was so crass over the top.

I like Daniel Craig in other films, but I don't like him as Bond.

I would have cast Colin Farrell or possibly Hugh Jackman

In Dangerous Liaisons, replace Keanu Reeves with ANYONE who can act.  The dude from Bill and Ted just can't be a dramatic French guy!

Jean Reno would likely have made a great Poirot if he were younger.

Sacrilege x 2

Prisoners was one of the best performances of one of the best actors of his generation.

As for Heard replacing Knightley WT Actual F!

The Godfather Part III: Wynona Ryder (Sofia Coppola)

The Magnificent Seven (1960): Sal Mineo (Horst Bucholz)

I, Tony (2017); Amy Adams (Margot Robbie) not a reflection on her talent but Adams looks so much like Harding

Sofia definitely belongs behind the camera. She couldn't even DIE properly. Winona would have been great.

No, she couldn't...

Coppola was truly misguided by casting her... and it's a shame because the film was masterpiece material...

She's a terrific writer/director though

The Devil Wears Prada: Replace Meryl Streep with Glenn Close

(not because Streep is bad, I just want to see it)

Please edit:

IMDb Poll BoardThe Replacement

Name a movie you liked, but you want to replace one of its actors or actresses with another who is more suitable for the role.

-MAX 3 title

That's a good one.

Edit: In fact, did she not play a similar role in a similar film?

I noticed that the theme of part of the plot of Cruella starring Emma Stone is similar to The Devil Wears Prada, but I've not seen 101 Dalmations and I don't what movie with Glenn Close might be similar to Devil-Prada.

Okay, my final THREE picks.

1. Replace Amy Adams with Anne Hathaway in Man Of Steel (2013) and future DCEU films.

2. Replace Daniel Craig with Colin Farrell in Casino Royale (2006) and subsequent Bond films.

3. Replace Hilary Swank with Halle Berry in Insomnia (2002).

I would probably remake every film with a half dozen actors; Ryder, Hathaway, Berry, Jackman, Farrell, Dafoe and maybe a few others 😂

@NYVKE​ interesting choices ,But I do not think that there is a better alternative than Henry Cavill to play the role of Superman, and also C.Bale as Batman

I think The Dark Knight Trilogy was so good not because of Bale, but despite him.

Excellent writing and direction but John/Chris Nolan and a solid ensemble of supporting cast make it work

@NYVKE​ I completely agree with you
The scripts and direction of the DC universe were not good
And probably the presence of Christian Bale would not have made us have a great movie
But in any case, I would love to see Christian Bale in Batman again

So, how far in the future will we be able to change actors
in movies and TV with CGI and AI??
