Channing Tatum and Joseph Gordon-Levitt just might be the guys to fill Marlon Brando and Frank Sinatra's shoes.

Deadline reports that Fox is eyeing the two stars for a remake of the classic musical, "Guys and Dolls." Hollywood has been trying to put together a remake of the 1955 movie for years, but the studio only just secured the rights from songwriter Frank Loesser's widow.

The original movie starred Brando and Sinatra as the "Guys," two charming small-time gamblers. Jean Simmons and original Broadway cast member Vivien Blaine played the "Dolls." The musical's famous songs include "Luck Be a Lady" and "Sit Down, You're Rocking the Boat."

Both Tatum and Gordon-Levitt can sing and dance, as they demonstrated earlier this year at the Oscars. And they've even teamed up before - in "G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra," "Stop-Loss," and "Havoc." Tatum also made an appearance in Gordon-Levitt's directorial debut, "Don Jon."

While their pairing sounds like a dream casting, the project doesn't have a director and is in the earliest of stages.
