What would "The Usual Suspects," Bryan Singer's breakthrough 1995 mystery thriller, look like if Singer were casting it right now? That question was posed to the director over Twitter on Monday, and Singer responded by loading up this fantasy "Usual Suspects" remake with some of the day's biggest stars.

For those who don't remember, the original cast of "The Usual Suspects" looked like this: Chazz Palminteri as Agent Kujan, Gabriel Byrne as Keaton, Benicio Del Toro as Fenster, Stephen Baldwin as McManus, Kevin Pollack as Hockney, Suzy Amis as Edie Finneran, Pete Postlethwaite as Kobayashi and Kevin Spacey as Verbal Kint. (Spacey and screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie won Academy Awards for "The Usual Suspects.")
As for what Singer plans to do with this fantasy cast for "The Usual Suspects," our guess is that you'll never hear from him again. (And like that, this post is done.)
