Luck be a lady, tonight. The classic musical "Guys and Dolls", originally starring Frank Sinatra and Marlon Brando in the 1955 film, is getting a remake. And who could fill the big shoes of Sinatra and Brando? None other than Channing Tatum and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
The story takes place in New York and focuses on a gambler, who is challenged to take a cold female missionary to Havana. They end up falling for each other, but the gambler has a hidden motive to finance a crap game, so the plot gets complicated. The songs are wonderful and memorable and the musical won many Tony's on stage.
Tatum will play Nathan Detroit, the gambler who bets his friend Sky Masterson (Gordon-Levitt) that he can't get the wholesome Sarah Brown, who owns a mission, to take that trip to Havana with him.
We've seen Tatum dance in such films as "Step-Up" and "Magic Mike" and we got a glimpse of Gordon-Levitt's moves at the Oscar's as well as in "500 Days of Summer". While they may not be Sinatra and Brando (but who is?) the two of them are incredibly charismatic and charming, so I look forward to seeing how this one unfolds.
No writer or director is currently attached but we'll keep you posted as the story develops.
