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.”
