Guy Ritchie ‘to remake classic musical Guys And Dolls’May 27th, 2009 - 1:41 pm ICT by ANI
London, May 27 (ANI): If rumours are to believed, Guy Ritchie is set to direct a remake of classic musical ‘Guys And Dolls’.
According to sources, Ritchie has been given the green light by studio bosses in tinsel town to embark on a casting mission to fill the roles of Sky Masterson and Nathan Detroit - played by screen legends Marlon Brando and Frank Sinatra in the original.
“Guy has been on the case with the idea of making a musical recently,” the Sun quoted a source as saying.
“He had been throwing ideas around with Jason Statham about writing their own musical. They were joking that it would be a cross between Worzel Gummidge and Bullitt.
“Guy has had a lot of meetings with top studio bosses about other projects but the Guys And Dolls idea really tickled him.
“He is torn between keeping the script true to the original in New York and taking it to familiar surroundings in London,” the source added.
The 1955 film, based on the hit Broadway musical, was about a bloke who wanted to stay out with his pals every night gambling rather than spend time at home with his religious missus. (ANI)
