Michelle Rodriguez and Cara Delevingne have become best friends/lesbian lovers over the past few months, spreading their drunken glee around the globe and now… maybe to the big screen? Michelle is an actress and Cara wants to be one, and because of that there’s been talks that they might do a remake of Thelma and Louise together. Like, WHAT?
In what may be the most unsubstantiated rumour since the announcement of Miranda Kerr’s supposed segue into a singing career, The Sun has reported Delevingne and Rodriguez (best known for her role in the Fast and Furious film series) are in talks about co-starring as the duo in a modern adaptation of the 1991 cult classic film.
Despite the fact that the friendship is still a relatively new one (they first bonded at a Knicks basketball game in January), The Sun reported Rodriguez is requesting Delevingne as her co-star.
While Delevingne’s acting experience to date is limited, she’s made her ambitions concerning the big screen known, and has even been credited with having “natural acting talent” by director Michael Winterbottom, who cast her for his 2014 release, The Face of an Angel, which was inspired by the 2009 murder trial involving Amanda Knox.
Oh Lord. First of all, it begs the question: Why the fuck are we even remaking Thelma and Louise? Why is it needed? Honestly, I would like to know. Second of all, if we ARE redoing it, WHY IS IT STARRING MICHELLE RODRIGUEZ? No disrespect, but her acting is average at best and just… no. Second of all, Cara Delevingne as her co-star? So, basically we’re trying to ensure that this is a straight-to-DVD release, right?
