|An actual movie of Sunset Blvd with Close and someone like Hugh Jackman in 1998 might have worked, but it didn't happen.
If they had taped a performance of the revival in 2017 on stage, that might also have worked. There was an audience for a taped production of Close in that role on stage.
However, a movie today with Close decades too old would come across as ludicrous and unintentionally funny. The property is too much of a classic because of the 1950 film to change the ages of Norma and Joe. Norma has to be 50, and the actress in a film must be able to believably look that age. Just IMO.
