Betty White is having an interesting career revival. At a time when most actors her age are out of the public eye, she is busier than ever. And her cult career resurgence my make her into a movie God.
In a proposed remake of the 1977 George Burns/ John Denver comedy Oh, God! that is. Deadline New York is reporting that producer Jerry Weintraub is shopping the idea of a remake around to studios, suggesting White for the role of God and Paul Rudd in the John Denver role.
Now, the article stresses that these are just actors that Weintraub is suggesting for these role in order to entice studios to bite on the project. Odds are that White or Rudd haven’t even been officially contacted for roles in the film, let alone signed on.
But wouldn’t you want to see Betty White coming as God to Paul Rudd? Seems like a can’t miss prospect there.
