Just imagine: No more movies with plots even the actors in them can't explain. No more "part 2" of a finale that should have just been one movie to begin with. Instead, a line-up of fantastic reimaginings of classic flicks with new, female casts. This, friends, could be our future. After all, Ghostbusters earned $3.4 million on its first night in theaters, and there's already talk of an all-female Ocean's Eleven. So what others can we add to the list? Here, some ideas.More
The original Men in Black starred Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith as agents who keep track of aliens, then foil said aliens' plot to destroy the earth. Tommy Lee takes Will under his wing and shows him the intergalactic-patrol ropes. But how much cooler would this be if it were *Women* in Black starring Amy Poehler and Aubrey Plaza? You only need to look to the "Women in Garbage" episode of Parks & Recreation, where the two prove to sexist garbagemen that women can do any job—honestly, that's their audition right there.
James Bond has been on the big screen since 1963, but the character has yet to be played by anyone but a white British man. Yawn. We nominate Priyanka Chopra as Jane (or James, because that *can* be a woman's name). She's already proven her badass fighting and espionage skills as Alex on Quantico, and when Complex asked her if she would ever want to be a Bond Girl, she said, "I get that all the time... But f*ck that—I wanna be Bond." Um, yes Priyanka, we will join in that campaign with you. (#PriyankaForBond, get it trending.)
