Surprise! Call me M. Night Shyamalan because I'm throwing you a twist ending.
Here's why I'm going with Favre. Remakes are rarely good if they're just the same movie with better effects and new actors. There has to be some sort of twist.
What better twist than switching from basketball to football? Suddenly we have a whole new movie!
So why Favre? Well, here's how I see it going down:
It's the winter of 2008. Favre has just tearfully retired from the Packers. A few months later he's on the golf course thinking that he regrets his decision, just not quite enough to come back. Enter the Looney Tunes.
Favre decides to give it one last go with his new teammates. On the last play Favre scrambles for an 85 yard touchdown run that ends in him leaping from the 20 yard line for the score.
The game reinvigorates Favre and he decides to come back.
This seems flawless. We know Favre has some acting chops from his cameo in There's Something About Mary, and he seems like he'd love playing a backyard football game with a bunch of cartoon characters. That's not even the best part.
So what is the best part? There's a .000000000000000001 percent chance that this actually happened! Think about it, is there a better explanation for what made Favre want to come back?
Ok, so Brett Favre probably didn't take part in a real life Space Jam, but still, it's a cool idea. It's not like Favre has anything better to do at this point. Let's make this happen!
