In the summer months, Hollywood is often accused of doing the same thing, over and over and over again. Well, that all changes this summer.
This summer, Hollywood is doing the same thing, over and over again, but with entirely different people!
Here’s a quick look at how studios are putting new faces in old roles, bringing new life to old brands.
THE DARK KNIGHT RISES
Anne Hathaway is Catwoman, replacing Michelle Pfeiffer who played the role in 2004.
Andrew Garfield replaces Tobey Maguire (2002).
THE BOURNE LEGACY
Jeremy Renner takes the franchise reins from Matt Damon (2002).
Mark Ruffalo is the new Hulk, replacing Ed Norton (2008’s “Incredible Hulk”) and Eric Bana (“The Hulk” 2003). Third time’s a charm?
Jordin Sparks replaces Irene Cara from “Sparkle” ’79.
Colin Farrell replaces Arnold Schwarznenegger’s super-sized 1990 original.
