20th Century Fox’s remake of the musical Guys and Dolls is starting to materialize. Deadline reports that the studio has tapped The Hunger Games: Mockingjay scribe Danny Strong to pen the script for the redo, which is a high priority for Fox. Strong first gained notice for writing the political HBO films Game Change and Recount, but lately he’s become a bit of a go-to screenwriter. He wrote the final two installments of the Hunger Games franchise Mockingjay Parts 1 & 2, he penned the historical drama Lee Daniels’ The Butler, and he also wrote Ron Howard’s upcoming Dan Brown adaptation The Lost Symbol. With the Guys and Dolls gig, he can now add “movie musical” to his resume.
A Guys and Dolls remake has been in the works for many, many years, but a few months ago Fox expressed interest in crafting a new iteration for a young generation with an eye on Channing Tatum and Joseph Gordon-Levitt taking on the starring roles. With Strong now on scripting duties, expect to hear more firm word about the project next year.
" I knew there was another movie to be made, and I had a sense of what it could be. There’s a story about friendship in here that can be really interesting, that also involves a road trip. Thematically, there was something interesting about that to me."
