A new film version of ‘Guys and Dolls’

Regular readers of P&P know that I can’t resist an old-school musical (yes, I’m still watching “Smash,” though I kind of hate myself for it), never mind a man in a fedora, and so I’m delighted to pass along the news that 20th Century Fox has closed a deal to obtain movie rights to “Guys and Dolls,” and that they’re interested in signing Channing Tatum as Nathan Detroit (the role Frank Sinatra played in the 1955 screen version) and Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Sky Masterson (the role played by Marlon Brando). Since the Oscars, we know that Gordon-Levitt can sing and dance — and we already knew that Tatum can dance. No director or writer is attached yet, so this is in very early stages, and who knows who’ll get the roles in the end (hello, Hugh Jackman?) but still . . . could be fun, no? Stay tuned.
