Granted, this sounds like an epic bad idea. There will never be another Mary Poppins aside from Julie Andrews. Emily Blunt is going to try.
Now comes word that Colin Firth will play the crusty banker who emotionally abuses and abandons his children. Okay, well then, I'm in.
The reason for the two pictures? Well, it's my blog and I had a reason to put up a picture of Collin. Do the math.
Lin Manuel Miranda is I guess going to take the place of Dick Van Dyke, and I'm sure learn a better Cockney accent. Still, there was never another Willy Wonka (Gene Wilder) and I think Mary Poppins will be the same. Does Emily Blunt sing? I haven't seen "Girl on the Train" because she just seems wrong for that part. Anyone seen it?
