Feel free to recast any film just for kicks. All in good fun :)

It could be recasting an old classic with today's actors:

The Apartment
C.C. Baxter - Joseph Gordon Levitt
Fran Kubelik - Carey Mulligan
Jeff Sheldrake - Jon Hamm
Dr. Dreyfuss - Michael Stuhlbarg

or a relatively recent movie with old actors:

Django Unchained (1976 edition)
Isaac Hayes as Django
Maximilian Schell as Dr. King Schultz
Jon Voight as Calvin Candie
Roscoe Lee Browne as Stephen
Pam Grier as Broomhilda
Ned Beatty as Spencer " Big Daddy" Bennett
Bruce Dern as Billy Crash
Sandy Dennis as Lara Candie

Pam Grier really should and could have been in Django Unchained. It's not like she was busy doing something good.

Probably need a specific suggestion for the next turn, otherwise the game seems to stall.
