Mostly I've had to give this year's blogathons a miss—those non-blog projects are taking up all my time—but here's one coming up at the end of July that caught my eye.
It's called "The Great Recasting Blogathon" and it's hosted by In The Mood and Frankly My Dear, a couple of classic movie blogs you might want to check out on your own.
The rules are these:
1. Pick a movie that was made in between 1966 and today
2. Change the year of production
3. Choose new leads from Classic Hollywood
4. Choose a new director from Classic Hollywood
5. Explain why you think it would work
Starts Friday, July 27, and ends the following day.

Get your Photoshop on, boys and girls!
