Guys And Dolls is getting a remake now

According to Variety, TriStar Pictures has picked up the rights to the Guys And Dolls Broadway musical, the Damon Runyon short stories that the musical was based on, the book and music from the Broadway musical, and the 1955 film adaptation starring Marlon Brando, Jean Simmons, and Frank Sinatra. The obvious reasoning for this, beyond putting together some kind of bizarre Guys And Dolls collection that exclusively includes legal paperwork, is that TriStar is planning to develop a Guys And Dolls remake, following the success of recent movies like La La Land and The Greatest Showman.

We don’t know much beyond that, but hopefully TriStar’s production will find room for Mark Hamill’s classic Guys And Dolls number. The studio might have to negotiate for permission to use Star Wars, but it clearly has a lot of practice getting the rights to stuff.
