Zeta-Jones Beats McCutcheon To Dream Role

Welsh beauty CATHERINE ZETA-JONES has beaten LOVE ACTUALLY star MARTINE McCUTCHEON to the lead role in a movie version of GUYS AND DOLLS.

The CHICAGO actress is in early negotiations to play showgirl MISS ADELAIDE in the musical about gamblers in '50s New York, leaving McCutcheon devastated by the rejection.

MIRAMAX FILMS co-founder HARVEY WEINSTEIN promised the part to JONES - after her OSCAR-winning performance with RENEE ZELLWEGER for his studio's musical Chicago.

He explains, "My fondest wish is to reunite Renee and Catherine."

McCutcheon met the movie bosses who are developing the movie, but was rejected because she isn't well-known enough.

Weinstein is building a star-studded cast - Renee Zellweger wants to play prim SALVATION ARMY girl SARAH BROWN, MOULIN ROUGE actress NICOLE KIDMAN has shown interest in the film and GLADIATOR hunk RUSSELL CROWE may be tempted.
