The openly gay Hollywood producers behind the box-office smash Chicago are currently in talks to create a big-screen production of Frank Loesser's Guys and Dolls, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, whose latest work was the ABC made-for-TV special The Music Man, have made a name for themselves by helping to revive the film musical genre.
Sources say complicated rights issues must be squared away before any production work starts. There is also no word whether a Dolls remake would be changed to take place in a contemporary setting or would remain a period piece.
Zadan and Meron are also lined up to do a new version of Ray Bradbury's futuristic tale of governmental control and cultural apathy, Fahrenheit 451, with director Frank Darabont (The Green Mile).
