Movie remakes in Hollywood are commonplace, but sometimes the same actors are cast in the original movie and its remake. Here are 9 movie remakes that feature the same actors.
- Death at a Funeral. Peter Dinklage plays the character Frank in the 2007 original and the 2010 American versions of Death at a Funeral.
- Cape Fear. Robert Mitchum and Gregory Peck appear in both versions of Cape Fear. They play different characters from the 1962 version to the 1991, but Martin Scorsese wanted to pay homage to the classic by including the original cast.
- Planet of the Apes. Charlton Heston stars as the main character Taylor in the original Planet of the Apes. Tim Burton wanted to pay homage to the original, so he cast Heston as Zaius, a dying elder ape in the remake in 2001.
