AceShowbiz - Studio bosses at TriStar are developing a remake of 1955 Frank Sinatra and Marlon Brando movie "Guys and Dolls".

The executives have purchased the remake rights to short stories by Damon Runyon, the stage musical that featured music by Frank Loesser, and the film from the Samuel Goldwyn company, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The "Guys and Dolls" plot revolves around gamblers trying to find a location for a floating craps game.
