Who would you have on board?
Donald Sinden as Godfrey?
David Ryall as Hodges
Roger Allam as Rev Timothy Farthing?
Incidentally, if you had Private Godfrey down as a little effete Englishman ..think again.
Look at his CV
Just goes to show what a very fine actor he was.
Dads Army remake

Agree about Ridley - thanks for the link.
Difficult to resurrect Dad's Army - it was the consistent quality performances right across the cast, as well as the brilliant writing, which made it so wonderful. You knew that you'd actually met all the charcters and most of the situations in real life, right down to the silent resentment boiling away in the relationship between Mainwaring and Wlison.
Martin Clunes as Capt Mainwaring?
David Cameron as Capt Mainwaring
George Osborne as Sgt Wilson
Vince Cable as Corporal Jones
Nick Clegg as Private Pike
Michael Gove as Private Frazer
Boris Johnson as Private Walker
Ian Duncan Smith as Private Godfrey
Ed Milliband as the Rev Farthing
Nigel Farage as ARP Warden Hodges
I think it'll be a critical and commercial success (a bit like the Italian Job remake !). So Mark Wahlberg is going to play Captain Mainwaring, Ben Kingsley as Hodges (the baddie !), Taylor Lautner as teen heart-throb Private Pike.
Set in the small town of Wilmington (near Long Beach in California).....
