Come on man, Steve Buscemi is already busy playing Christian Grey in the next Fifty Shades movie.Hero in a half shell said:The correct answer is obviously Steve Buscemi.
Come on, I'd watch that.
I know you know the answer to this, but still - because Hermione's race was not relevant to her character, whereas Mulan's race is central to hers.Josh123914 said:

Yeah, I don't think she is right for the part either. One of the mayor points of Mulan's story is that she defied social and filial conventions by going to war instead of having a more traditional role like training to get a husband, something that would not sound out of place for a young girl at the time, but would be scandalous on an adult woman.Covarr said:Ming-Na Wen is a talented actress, and it's always nice to see a voice actor reprise their role for live action (Daran Norris in A Fairly Odd Movie, Jonathan Freeman in stage productions of Aladdin), but I think she's too old for the role. Mulan is 16 in the original film, and while there is some room for give, I don't think there's nearly that much room.
That movie wasn't bad, but it did feature a problem with producing a Mulan movie on this day and age: Mulan is a highly political character in modern China, to the point of being mythological. A movie that wants to adapt any version of the story of Mulan (there are several), and still make it into the Chinese market, would have to be made safe and cleaned up so much it would be almost indistinguishable from propaganda (think of a biopic of Washington before the removal of the Hays Code).gphjr14 said:While it'd be neat to see another live action Mulan movie its been done already. From what I recall it wasn't bad, nor that memorable.
