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.

    This reply if for CMO175: Wow... I had to comment on your posting. The fact that you believe Batman vs. Superman would beat Captain America 3 strikes me as uninformed. Zack Snyder is a visual master... but his stories and pacing and color palate are truly lacking in the development process. Superman simply had no soul... the man and the movie. And the silly destruction of the city and the landscape IS out of character with what Superman is. How many people died as Superman himself crashed through buildings and caused explosions throughout the movie? Superman would NEVER allow that to happen, but Zack Snyder and his writer would... and did. And it was a boring, stupid mess. And he WILL bring that soulless idiocy to Batman vs. Superman. Captain America, on the other hand? Winter Soldier is the most exciting super hero movie since The Dark Knight. And I, a 55 year old long time comic book universe fan, WILL be in line for Captain America 3! I will have to be convinced -- a LOT -- to turn around and spend my money, and time, in a Zack Snyder Batman vs. Superman. Zack Snyder stole a bit of my soul -- and I hate him for it -- when he introduced zombies that can run down a car. If zombies existed, in a Zack Snyder universe, and they move FASTER than any human... then he has introduced a horror universe in which man has NO hope of survival! Mankind cannot survive in this universe where vicious zombies have the speed to overwhelm any human survival situation... and that vision kills the suspense in a zombie movie. Where is the hope? That does not exist in a Zack Snyder movie. That man is Sucker Punching all of us. I'm not taking it any more. There are too many other fan friendly directors of fantasy movies for me to follow. I only hope that Disney/Marvel will hire the same brother director team to direct Captain America 3. That will be a smart move, indeed. RLJ
