It looks like Emily Blunt is going to play Mary Poppins in Disney’s next live-action remake. They are still in negotiations, but it looks like she’s going to sign on the line. We think she’s the best pick to replace Julie Andrews. Some people were saying Anne Hathaway would get the part, but Emily Blunt is now circling the role like a vulture. It’s almost a guarantee that she’ll land the role. We agree with the pick. Rob Marshall is directing the remake, and he worked with Blunt on Into the Woods. She can sing and she can definitely act. I don’t know anyone that DOESN’T like Emily Blunt. She’s practically perfect in every way.
