If this isn’t a dream duo, we don’t know who is.
Channing Tatum, 32, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, 32, who showed off their fancy footwork and singing skills at the 2013 Oscars, are being recruited for the lead roles in a new remake of the stage and screen classic, Guys and Dolls.
20th Century Fox has secured the rights to the 1950 musical that was then adapted five years later in a film version starring a young Frank Sinatra and Marlon Brando— and now they’re gunning for JGL and Channing to do the honors.
The actors would play hotshot gangsters who go on a crazy adventure— with no shortage of singing and dancing— around New York City to win a bet.
And Channing’s no stranger to busting a move. The daddy-to-be starred in the dance-driven movie Step Up with his now-wife, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, and played the lead role in the 2012 stripper flick, Magic Mike.
As for Joseph, he’s got the pipes and the moves. He showed of his impressive chops during this year’s Academy Awards and demonstrated his fancy footwork in 500 Days of Summer and several other roles.
We can already hear them singing "Luck Be a Lady" now... and we. can't. wait.
