Tilda To Play Auntie Mame?

tildaUnknownHow many times do I have to say this? They shouldn’t remake classics, which can rarely be improved. They should remake lousy movies and make them better. The latest offender is “Auntie Mame,” the peerless madcap classic released in 1958 starring Roz Russell and based on a witty book by Patrick Dennis. The new version is being scripted for Tilda Swinton (pictured), a charmingly eccentric actress but no Auntie Mame. But who is? (Besides Cher, of course.)
