Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Channing Tatum are being eyed to star in a remake of the 1955 musical classic Guys and Dolls for 20th Century Fox. The studio recently finalized a deal for the movie rights and, while offers haven't been made to the actors yet, both parties are interested in signing on.

The original musical, which starred Marlon Brando and Frank Sinatra, is based on the short stories of Damon Runyon. The story centers on Nathan Detroit (Frank Sinatra), a gambler trying to set up his own craps game, who bets his friend Sky Masterson (Frank Sinatra) that he can convince the wholesome missionary Sarah Brown (Jean Simmons) to come to Havana, Cuba with him.

There is no writer or director attached to the remake at this time. You may recall that both Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Channing Tatum showed off their singing and dancing skills at the 85th Annual Academy Awards back in February.

Guys and Dolls was released November 3rd, 1955 and stars Marlon Brando, Jean Simmons, Frank Sinatra, Vivian Blaine, Robert Keith, Stubby Kaye, B.S. Pully, Johnny Silver. The film is directed by Joseph L. Mankiewicz.
