Fox Seals ‘Guys And Dolls’ Rights; Wants Channing Tatum, Joseph Gordon-Levitt To Fill Frank Sinatra And Marlon Brando Shoes

Please don't cast Anne Hathaway as Sgt. Sarah Brown:

by Miareply 3204/25/2013

However Fox does not support Guys with Dolls rights?

by Miareply 104/24/2013

God I hate that fucking show!

by Miareply 204/24/2013

A remake of Guys and Dolls, you're shitting me, right?

by Miareply 304/24/2013

If they're going to fill shoes, they should be Robert Alda's and Sam Levene's.

by Miareply 404/24/2013

If they get a good singer for the Guy Masterson role, they can put back the songs that had to be cut since Marlon Brando could barely sing.

by Miareply 504/24/2013

Oops! That should be Sky Masterson, not Guy.

by Miareply 604/24/2013

Channing Tatum!?!? I'm sorry, I just don't get the fascination with this guy. He's in good shape,and ok, he's decent looking; but he's way overrated in the acting and dancing ability.

Oh you darling, naive R7. It's not about talent, it's about making money and putting the current flavor of the month in the film that stupid people will see. Why do you think Crowe was Javert?

by Miareply 804/24/2013

Levitt should turn this down.

by Miareply 904/24/2013

I don't think I'd describe Russell Crowe as a "flavour of the month," however much his singing sucked in Les Miz.

by Miareply 1004/24/2013

I love when Hollywood remakes these tres gay flicks, so that the decrepit old queens on here can go apoplectic. Pass the popcorn Cheryl, this is gonna be good.

by Miareply 1104/24/2013

R6 Are you sure you didn't mean BAT Masterson?

by Miareply 1204/24/2013

This will fail.

And can we PLEASE stop pretending that Channing Tatum is attractive? He has the face of a baboon.

by Miareply 1304/24/2013

Has even made a musical since Hello Dolly almost bankrupted that place?

by Miareply 1404/24/2013

Please no Channing Tatum, why does entertainment in America only use the same ten people over and over?

by Miareply 1504/24/2013

This might be a good time for a new Guys and Dolls. The material is not over-exposed, the score and book are great, and a new theatrical musical release is overdue.

I agree. Same with Joseph Gordon-Levitt. I'm getting so tired of the same old white guys being in every single movie.

by Miareply 1704/24/2013

R1 Fox LOVES Dolls. They made Valley of the Dolls.

by Miareply 1804/24/2013

r17, the whole idea of "white" really irks you doesn't it?

by Miareply 1904/24/2013

The show score is great. The film score, not so great.

by Miareply 2004/24/2013

Will they show hole?

by Miareply 2104/24/2013

Are they serious? These are charismaless white bread guys, especially Tatum. Don't they get that the character of Sky Masterson doesn't have to be physically attractive, he just needs that visceral charisma?

by Miareply 2204/24/2013

Sky can even have bushy eyebrows if it helps his characterization.

by Miareply 2304/24/2013

Gallagher is still more perfect for Sky than someone like Tatum will ever be.

by Miareply 2404/24/2013

Doesn't matter who they cast as the guys or even Sarah really. Who they cast as Adelaide is what will make or break the film.

by Miareply 2504/24/2013

Melissa McCarthy for Adelaide!

by Miareply 2604/24/2013

Rebel Wilson as Adelaide

by Miareply 2704/25/2013

Most old queens here haven't seen any of Tatum's films I'm guessing. He does a lot of schlock but 21 Jump Street showed he was excellent at comedy, and can be very charismatic.

by Miareply 2804/25/2013

Eh, maybe, it won't be made as a musical.

Maybe, the guys will have only one scene where they dance.

by Miareply 2904/25/2013

Channing is such a lump of stale white bead.

But really, I don't see how this musical can appeal to a modern mass audience. Are kids raised on ghetto rap going to understand the odd early 20th-century NY speech patters, or the existence of Salvation Army Bands? Seriously, the material is old old old, and can't be updated without changing it beyond recognition.

by Miareply 3004/25/2013

Are we going to be in it?

by Miareply 3104/25/2013

If I have anything to do about it, this will NOT happen!!!!!
