A remake of a famous film where every character is played by Arnie.


Film suggestion: Harry Potter

Improviser C (Voldemort): You think you can kill me, but I’ll be back.

Teaching Purpose

  • Commitment
  • Bold choices

Additional Tips for Playing

  • If you don’t know the film well you can ask for a famous scene. Or, just use whatever you know!
  • It doesn’t matter whether you’re doing a good impression, just commit to it.


Can also be done as a fictional improvised action movie. Try with your other favourite film stars!
