News: Ritchie ‘Working On Guys And Dolls’

I think this is really interesting !!!

Guy Ritchie is set to branch out from the world of gangster cinema – the filmmaker is reportedly in Hollywood to begin writing a script for a remake of Guys And Dolls.

The director, best known for his London-based crime films, is said to have roped in movie hardman Jason Statham to show off his vocal talents in a reworking of the classic musical, which originally starred Marlon Brando and Frank Sinatra.

A source tells British newspaper The Sun, “Guy has been on the case with the idea of making a musical recently. He had been throwing ideas around with Jason Statham about writing their own musical.

“Guy has had a lot of meetings with top studio bosses about other projects but the Guys And Dolls idea really tickled him.”

But Ritchie could be sticking to a familiar formula when shooting begins – he is apparently considering basing the song-and-dance classic in his native Britain.

The insider adds: “He is torn between keeping the script true to the original in New York and taking it to familiar surroundings in London.”

Action movie hunks Hugh Jackman and Daniel Craig are bringing Hollywood glamour to Broadway – they are teaming up to hit the New York stage for a new play.

The 007 star will make his Broadway debut alongside seasoned theatre star Jackman in new drama A Steady Rain.

The play, written by Keith Huff and produced by James Bond’s Barbara Broccoli, follows two cops from Chicago, Illinois whose close friendship is pushed to its limits after becoming involved in a domestic dispute in a poor neighbourhood, reports the New York Post.

Craig performed small roles on the London stage before breaking into Hollywood, while X-Men star Jackman won a Tony Award in 2004 for his turn in Broadway musical The Boy From Oz.

A Steady Rain is due to open this autumn.
