GUYS AND DOLLS Remake Starring Channing Tatum and Joseph Gordon-Levitt

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.

    I can see him retiring Wolverine after W3 but as stated - HJ is still RIPPED. He does some serious workouts to play Logan and has the body to prove it. If they cast someone younger to play him after W3 then they had better search long and hard because he is one tough act to follow as Logan!

    okay, i took the bait of the Teaser for the new Bond movie, and I am hooked. Bond seems to have a secret link to Spectre, This will be interesting. I love the way the new recycling of Bond stories have developed from the first Craig adaptation and reinventing of the role. Guess I am onboard to continue to be a person that has never missed a Bond movie. From when I first saw Dr. No and From Russia With Love on a double feature in the 60's as a teenager I have been hooked and still am.

    My hope would be that someday, Marvel Studios can reach an agreement to have him appear, at least as a cameo, in one of the Phase 3 films. Maybe as a possible recruit in the Infinity War against Thanos.
