For the past few years, I occassionaly read online chatter about re-making Flash Gordon. Although I think that all the Flash Gordon serials & movies were all so bad they were good, I think the franchise could use a refreshing! I know that, prior to making Star Wars, Lucas tried securing the rights to Flash Gordon. Imagine how cool a Lucas-helmed F.G. franchise would have been? In any event, whether a re-make (or re-makes) focus on the original Alex Raymond strips, the Buster Crabbe serials/movies, or the B-Movie masterpiece from '80, who should be casted? Here are my thoughts...feel free to share!

Flash Gordon - Ryan Gosling
Dale Arden -
Dr. Hans Zarkhov - Paul Giamatti
Ming the Merciless - Johnny Depp (shave him bald & give him a Fu Manchu)
Prince Barin - Jake Gyllenhall
Prince Vultan - the only actor who was utterly perfect was Brian Blessed from the '80 movie
Klytus - Benedict Cumberpatch (who else can match his capacity for urbane villany?)
General Kala - I'm going with Lindsey Lohan on this...I'm sure she can carry the role of sociopathic dominatrix without any problems!
Princess Aura - Megan Fox
Prince Thun (as a Lion Man) -

Flash Gordon - Armie Hammer
Ming the Merciless - Johnny Depp

Wait a second . . . that casting sounds familiar . . .

I just can't picture Johnny Depp doing a pure evil scene chewing mastermind. 

Maybe Gary Oldman or Jeremy Irons.

Gary Oldman? Jeremy Irons? No way! Johnny Depp IS Ming! He can totally pull it off...

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
