Guy Ritchie to remake ‘Guys and Dolls’

Guy Ritchie is set to remake ‘Guys and Dolls’.
The ‘Sherlock Holmes’ director has flown to Hollywood for a series of
meetings about turning the successful musical and 1955 movie, which is about
two small-time gamblers in New York, into a modern-day blockbuster.
A source said: “Guy has been on the case with the idea of making a musical
recently. He has had a lot of meetings with top studio bosses about other
projects but the ‘Guys and Dolls’ idea really tickled him.”
After the success of the iconic original film – which starred Marlon Brando,
Frank Sinatra and Jean Simmons – Guy plans to adapt the storyline and set
the story in London.
The source explained to Britain’s The Sun newspaper: “He is torn between
keeping the script true to the original in New York and taking it to
familiar surroundings in London.”
Before being offered the ‘Guys and Dolls’ remake, the 40-year-old director
and his actor friend Jason Statham – who Guy cast in ‘Lock, Stock and Two
Smoking Barrels’, ‘Snatch’ and ‘Revolver’ – had been discussing plans to
write their own musical.
A source said: “He has 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’.”
Meanwhile, Guy – who split from his wife of eight years, Madonna last year –
has been photographed snuggling up to a mystery blonde during his visit to
the US.
