Williams Touted For Guys And Dolls

Movie actor VIN DIESEL hopes to cast British pop hunk ROBBIE WILLIAMS in his long-awaited remake of musical classic GUYS AND DOLLS.

The burly hunk has been planning to film a new version of the musical, 50 years after the original version was released.

The PITCH BLACK action star also plans to star in the musical comedy as New York gambler SKY MASTERSON, the part originally played on screen by late movie legend MARLON BRANDO.

Williams, who created a 'Rat Pack' style image for himself for his 2002 release SWING WHEN YOU'RE WINNING, is in the running to play FRANK SINATRA's part NATHAN DETROIT.

Diesel says, "I was thinking of doing Sky Masterson and having Robbie as Nathan Detroit, which is also a fun part.

"These films take a while to put together, but hopefully the project will happen sooner rather than later."
