"Money won is twice as sweet as money earned."

I also have this idea of a film version for The Catcher in the Rye.

The Catcher In The Rye (1992):

Holden Caulfield: Christian Bale

Personally, I always thought Jake Gyllenhaal would have made an awesome Holden Caulfield, even if he is a little bit too old for the role now.

The Silence of the Lambs

Brie Larson - Clarice Starling

Viggo Mortensen - Dr. Hannibal Lecter

Courtney B. Vance - Jack Crawford

Billy Crudup - Dr. Chilton

Jake Gyllenhaal - James "Buffalo Bill" Gumb

and Frankie Faison as Barney

I find Jared Harris underwhelming and hammy a lot of the time.

Rheon is definitely too over top. I'd go with Ben Foster who gives me more of a Ted Levine vibe.

I was thinking of doing Dune with the Denis Villeneuve news. I had Viggo Mortensen as Duke Leto.

Game of Thrones (2000-2007): Knights (Part 1); pictures will be forthcoming

Bronn: Sean Bean or Daragh O'Malley

Brienne of Tarth: Cate Blanchett

Jory Cassel: Vincent Regan

Kevan Lannister: Gabriel Byrne

Strange Days (2016)

Music by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross
Cinematography by Greig Fraser

Michael Fassbender - Lenny Nero

Naomie Harris - Mace Mason

Jena Malone - Faith Justin

Jason Clarke - Max Peltier

Michael Pitt - Philo Gant

Ryan Hurst - Burton Steckler

James Landry Hébert - Dwayne Engelman

Clifton Collins Jr. - Tick

Following the success of The Wolf of Wall Street, Martin Scorsese finally is able to fund his dream adaptation of of Nikos Kazantzakis' controversial 1955 novel The Last Temptation of Christ. He receives strong reviews and comparisons to Scorsese's 1988 film Silence starring Daniel Day Lewis as Jesuit priest in Japan.

The Last Temptation of Christ (2016)

Adam Driver - Jesus

John Turturro - Judas Iscariot

Rebecca Hall - Mary Magdalene

Barbara Hershey - Mary

Jeffrey Tambor - Zebedee

Michael Stuhlbarg - Peter

Steve Buscemi - Saul / Paul

Tom Hiddleston - Pontius Pilate

I find Jared Harris underwhelming and hammy a lot of the time.
Just watch the scene in Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows where Moriarty tortures Holmes with a hook on the ceiling, while "Die Fiorelle" plays on a phonograph. Sounds like something Lector would do.

PSH would have been interesting too, if he was still alive, of course.
