Twitter is a very interesting place, especially when a random question gets a ton of responses.
This is one of those stories.
On April 3, Netflix posed a question to the film lovers of Twitter:
"What classic film do you want to see genderbent?"
What classic film do you want to see genderbent? I for one would love to see Natasha Lyonne as “The Dude.”— Netflix Film (@Netflix Film) 1554307003.0
Netflix themselves considered bringing Natasha Lyonne in as "The Dude," to which she quickly responded:
