The minds behind a popular Instagram account just made a bold move ― recasting "Sex and the City" for 2019. And we have to be honest, we're loving some of their picks.
"In a world where practically every film and television show is based on existing IP, we couldn’t help but wonder…where is the 'Sex and the City' reboot," the popular Every Outfit on Sex and the City Instagram account (@everyoutfitonsatc) wrote on Friday. "We spent entirely too much time casting a hypothetical 2019 remake, which is sure to elicit some passionate responses from our followers."
Take a look below to see their top choices!
Tessa Thompson as Carrie Bradshaw
Thompson, who appeared earlier this year in the films "Avengers: Endgame" and "Men in Black: International," was chosen to play the main protagonist of the HBO series, originally portrayed by Sarah Jessica Parker. She has big heels to fill as Carrie but followers of the account seemed to love the choice. One user wrote, "TESSA AS CARRIE *faints*."
Aidy Bryant as Charlotte York
We're loving the idea of Bryant playing Charlotte York, the sweet and romantic heroine of the bunch. The "Saturday Night Live" actress caught wind of the casting choice, and commented on the post, "Just let me know the shooting dates."
Busy Philipps as Samantha Jones
The blond actress, best known for her roles on "Freaks and Geeks" and "Cougar Town," is a fun pick to play Samantha Jones, the brash and straightforward PR maven originally played by Kim Cattrall. Philipps also commented on the post, writing in true Samantha fashion, "Honey, I'm ready for this. I'm ALWAYS ready."
Awkwafina as Miranda Hobbes
Best known for her breakthrough roles in films "Ocean's 8" and "Crazy Rich Asians," Awkwafina was tapped to portray Miranda Hobbes, the cynical and career-minded lawyer. In the post, the creators of the list explained that they omitted Miranda's main love, Steve, because in this fantasy reboot, the character is a lesbian.
Idris Elba as Mr. Big
The casting choice followers of the account loved the most was Idris Elba as Mr. Big. Known for his roles in "The Wire" and "Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom," People magazine's former "Sexiest Man Alive" would be a phenomenal choice for the main love in Carrie's life.
Armie Hammer as Aiden Shaw
We totally see the resemblance between Hammer and John Corbett, the actor who originally played the role of Carrie's sweet and good-natured furniture designer boyfriend.
