CHANNING TATUMHere's yet another remake in works: "Deadline" writes that 20th Century Fox is preparing a new version of GUYS AND DOLLS musical classic from the 1950's! And apparently Channing Tatum and Joseph Gordon Levitt are wanted for the two lead roles! You probably remember that the original film had Marlon Brando and Frank Sinatra with the story following Nathan Detroit, a gambler trying to set up his own craps game, who bets his friend Sky Masterson that he can't convince the wholesome missionary Sarah Brown (Jean Simmons) to come to Havana with him. Channing Tatum has proved his musical skills many times in his movies. You will see him next year in sf epic JUPITER ASCENDING and also in the new sequels to G.I. JOE 4 and 21 JUMP STREET!
ARMIE HAMMER & TOM CRUISE
THE MAN FROM THE U.N.C.L.E. SCIENCE FICTION FILMWe shall see an interesting duo in another remake - the big screen version of the 60s show THE MAN FROM THE U.N.C.L.E. "Deadline" reports that MIRROR MIRROR and THE LONE RANGER star Armie Hammer might join Tom Cruise in the movie which will see Cruise playing Napoleon Solo and Armie playing Illya Kuryakin, two agents working for the United Network Command for Law Enforcement (U.N.C.L.E.). In the classic show the story centred on U.N.C.L.E.'s battles with the Technological Hierarchy for the Removal of Undesirables and the Subjugation of Humanity (T.H.R.U.S.H.). The film is being directed by Guy Ritchie.
RYAN REYNOLDS & TARSEMAnd I have yet another piece of info on hunky Ryan Reynolds this week, but I'm sure you don't mind (winking at my ladies). As "Deadline" writes he might possibly join SELFLESS science fiction thriller which could have amazing Tarsem Sing (MIRROR MIRROR, THE CELL, THE FALL, IMMORTALS) as the helmer since he is currently negotiating to take the directing job. The unusual plot of the film follows a rich older man who pays to have his mind transferred to a younger man's body. The body he is transplanted into turns out to be the cadaver of man who was murdered. He soon finds himself being hunted down by the killers as he tries to figure out why his new body was murdered in the first place.
