Ana

The nurse, looks 25 to 29 years old. (Originally played by: Sarah Polley)


Really doing impressive in her acting career- Winter's Bone, X-Men (First Class and Days of Future Past), Hunger Games, Silver Linings Playbook, and I have to check out the trailer for Joy to see what she does.

MovieCriticGamer's rating:
Rate:
I haven't seen her in Tomorrowland, Scream 4, or The Longest Ride, but based on what she was given in her movie career, I'd love to see her do an action-packed zombie thriller like this.

Rate:
She was great as Gwen Stacy in Marc Webb's Spider-Man, and was also good in Zombieland and Easy A, which proved she can deliver her own dramatic and comedy chops in movies.

I don't see her so much as Hermione Granger anymore (Seen a bit of the Harry Potter movies, never read the books) but after seeing her performances in Perks of Being a Wallflower and Noah (also working on Regression with Ethan Hawke), she would bring more energy and depth to the character.
MovieCriticGamer's rating:
Rate:


She has the charisma, the accent, and action star presence she can bring to the screen. To prove it, movies like I Am Number Four, Warm Bodies (another zombie movie), The Sorcerer's Apprentice, and the upcoming Point Break remake (not released yet). Also, The Grudge 2 was her first horror movie and I thought she did great in the horror genre.
MovieCriticGamer's rating:
Rate:


Seeing her in Whiplash made me really skeptical at first as she had a supporting minor role, and then there's Supergirl (the new TV show), The Longest Ride, and also made an appearance in Glee.

This would probably make her emotional and dramatic range a little more better, in my opinion, unless she's done other movies or shows that can improve her charisma and acting ability.
Rate:


With The Wolf of Wall Street being her breakthrough performance and focusing on other films like Focus and the upcoming Suicide Squad (as Harley Quinn), Margot would fit this role perfectly since she's handled the action, drama, and the dark gritty theme Zack added to the Suicide Squad movie.

Kenneth

Hard as nails police officer, first encounters Ana, Michael, Andre, and Luda, then goes along with them to the mall. (Originally played by: Ving Rhames)
Average listal rating (206 ratings) 7.7 IMDB Rating 0


Elba was really epic in Pacific Rim, 28 Weeks Later, Prometheus, Takers, Luther, and some of the Marvel movies (in Thor). He would pretty much own the role with his own intensity he brings to the character.
Rate:
Average listal rating (1756 ratings) 7.6 IMDB Rating 0


He hasn't had much luck lately after being absent in movies for 4 years (2008-2012), but with his comeback in Focus and the upcoming Suicide Squad movie allows him to add the calmness to the character while other movies like I, Robot, I Am Legend, and Bad Boys even bring the authority to the character.

NOTE: This will be one of my last Dream Re-Cast lists for a very long time, as I feel the need to present lists of favorite movies with reviews and favorite actors, books, music, etc.

Just got done watching one of my favorite zombie movies of all time: Zack Snyder's Dawn of the Dead (The 2004 version with the running zombies).

This is just my idea (Dream Cast) if it were to be remade today. Nothing against the original or remake, like always, as I enjoyed both (Watched bits of the original and was a little so-so with the movie, mainly due to the fact that I was more accustomed to certain remakes than I was to originals.) and I have respect for the directors' own visions of the story.

Note: The remake made by Zack Snyder is based on George Romero's original Dawn of the Dead in 1978.

This is also done for fun as always, as I have made other lists relevant to dream casting and recasting.

Enjoy!
