    Will they need one? I'd guess soon as the Mask goes on, it will be 100% CGI. They can use anyone for the motion capture and alter the voice to whatever they want.
    Sounds perfect.

    So could Aisha Tyler.
    Honestly, first name that popped into mind when heard of a possible female Mask. She could pull it off easily, especially with her range of impressions.

    Kate McKinnon is only funny in small doses. The longer she is on screen the more grating her shtick gets.

    It will fail. First one only worked because of Jim Carey. And no I don't think that there's a male physical comedian who could pull it off either.

    I'm one of five people who did. I thought it was pretty good. Oh nowhere near as good as the first Mask but good in its own right. Basically a man's anxiety and eventual acceptance over being a father. Ah and Odin (Bob Hoskins) accepting his son Loki (Alan Cummin) just the way he is. We got Jamie Kennedy in the Mask for one sequence, I wish the movie had more of that.

    I saw the latest Ghost Busters and Ocean's 8 and thought they were good, but I do think that they limit themselves by making gender swap a good with comedy reboots. Humor can be, but isn't always, non gender specific. I guess we'll see.

    And thrive or fail, who cares? Did anyone actually see Mask 2? :P
    The question will be do they have a good script and direction, or is it going to be something mediocre that gets defended by the genderflip rather than any level of quality? Ocean's Eight was supposed to be pretty good, and I have seen good female-led films in the past, so I know it can be done.

    Anybody have any ideas as to who would make a good female Mask?
    I agree. He made The Mask one of the best super hero movies of all times. (Robin Williams did the same for Popeye.)

    I didn't even see the second one. Was Carey in that one?

    If they want to keep true to the comic do we really want a woman for a violent sociopathic character.
    The Gypsies had no home. The Doors had no bass.

    Does our reality determine our fiction or does our fiction determine our reality?

    Whenever the question comes up about who some mysterious person is or who is behind something the answer will always be Frank Stallone.

    What's wrong with a female violent sociopath?

    Besides, well, being a violent sociopath?
