The idea of Fox remaking "Guys and Dolls," now that the studio's secured the movie rights, isn't that shocking - this is present-day Hollywood, after all.
More interesting is the pair that's been name-checked as the desired leads: Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Channing Tatum.
According to Deadline, there's a possibility the duo could find their way to the roles of Nathan Detroit and Sky Masterson, which were memorably played by Frank Sinatra and Marlon Brando, respectively, in the 1955 movie.
"Guys and Dolls" had its origins on the page before it moved to the stage as an award-winning musical in 1950. Both JGL and Tatum have shown how well they can sing and dance, and both actors are in high demand, Deadline notes.
But, Fox's "Guys and Dolls" remake will need to find a writer and a director before it can start lining up deals for the cast - although the word is that both Gordon-Levitt and Tatum are interested.
What do you think - would Tatum and Gordon-Levitt make the perfect new "Guys and Dolls" duo?
Laura Bell Bundy as Adelaide and
which part could be best.
Any openings for the female parts?

I got to do this musical when I was a junior in high school and had a blast! I can totally see JGL as Nathan Detroit and Channing Tatum as Sky Masterson....I'll be interested to see how they modernize it.
At my Catholic junior high, we did a musical version of Tropic of Cancer.
I agree. This was a great Oldie... I hope they do it justice
I played Henry Chinaski in our 6th grade production of Barfly. It wasn't a musical, thank God, since I can't sing or dance. The middle school band played Booker T. and the MGs for accompanyment. Those were the days.
I'm not sure. I only watch the Nickelodeon Kid's Choice awards, and they weren't on that show. FFFFFPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT.........
If I'm not mistaken, didn't they do a number together at the Academy Awards? Was it from Guys and Dolls? Thanks to Seth MacFarlane for the inspiration!
Did you know that posting material like that in a public forum can be classified as a form of molestation? If a child were to come in here and read that and it was subsequently reported... Hope for your sake you're not on a public, work or school computer because you could be branded a s e x o f f e n d e r for that. Good Luck with that!
