While we continue to get some very impressive and exciting movies every year, there have been quite a few people who feel that Hollywood has lost its originality, by continually bringing us remakes, reboots, prequels, sequels, and comic book movies. It is no surprise then, that there have been a number of rumours recently, suggesting that Disney are toying with the idea of bringing us a remake of the classic movie Mary Poppins.
It does not just stop there though, as it looks like Disney are so set on bringing us a Mary Poppins remake, that they are already looking for the right actress to play the iconic character. According to recent rumours, British actress Emily Blunt has become the frontrunner, with some reports even claiming that she has already been offered the role, although Emily insists that this is not the case at all.
Blunt was chatting to Digital Spy about the possibility of playing Mary Poppins, when she said, "No, I've heard rumours of this and people have spoken to me about it today and there's not been anything official. I mean, she's an icon. Oh I won't go there yet, but I think it would be [scary]."
We have to admit that Emily Blunt would definitely be a great choice for the role of Mary Poppins in the planned remake but, whoever does finally land the role will have some very big shoes to fill, as Julie Andrews was absolutely sensational in the original film.
Which actress do you think would be right for the role of Mary Poppins?
