A deal has finally been done with the estate that controls “Guys and Dolls” that can bring the much-loved 1955 musical back to the screen, possibly featuring two of Hollywood’s hottest young actors, Deadline’s Mike Fleming Jr. reports: http://www.deadline.com/2013/04/fox-seals-guys-and-dolls-rights-wants-channing-tatum-joseph-gordon-levitt-to-fill-frank-sinatra-and-marlon-brando-shoes/
For Channing Tatum and JoGoLev there’s no pressure, however. It’s not like they’ll feel any heat filling the roles last occupied by the best American actor of his generation (Marlon Brando) and the two-time Oscar winner also considered his era’s best singer (one Francis Sinatra).
What do you think of this project? Would you like to see someone take another stab (er, so to speak, given its gangster milieu) at the classic musical of stage and screen?
