Will There Be A My Fair Lady Movie Remake?

If you've heard any inkling of the rumour that there will be a new movie version of My Fair Lady made, you have heard correctly.  The idea of a well-made My Fair Lady remake I find more than a little interesting. 

Rumoured to be in the title roll of Eliza Doolittle was one very popular young actress, Miss Keira Knightley.  However, there is a more recent rumour involving Miss Carey Mulligan.

Lots of rumours, too, about whether or not this film will actually be made in the near or in the distant future.  I also see that the gossips are talking about this movie happening in 2012...

My Fair Lady was based on a book called Pygmalion, which was written by George Bernard Shaw in 1912.  It was a very successful Broadway production in 1956 with Julie Andrews and was actually credited with the discovery of Miss Andrews.  It was also a highly successful 1964 movie, featuring Rex Harrison, Audrey Hepburn and Wilfrid Hyde-White. This movie version of the story won a total of eight Academy Awards including those for the Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Director.

Here's a peek at the 1964 movie:

Are you a fan of My Fair Lady? What do you think of the prospects of this movie remake?

I don't know if I like the idea of a re-make of this movie. The original "My Fair Lady" is one of my favorites. Hmmmmm....

I haven't seen My Fair Lady, at least I don't recall seeing it. I suppose I may have watched it when I was a youngster. I know it is a classic movie that people adore. Hopefully, they are doing a quality remake.
