This week on GeekScholars Movie News, presented by Eclipse Magazine, the crew debuts a new segment called the Casting Competition Challenge where the GeekScholars must attempt to recast classic films in the modern era. On this episode, listen to our picks for who we think should play Brody, Hooper, and Quint if a remake of Jaws were to happen today! Do you agree? Disagree?

Listen to the podcast in all its glory here:
