Guy Ritchie is turning his back on directing gangster films - he's reportedly working on a movie musical. Former Mr. Madonna best known for making Snatch, Lock, Stock, and Rock N' Rolla is set for a departure from the tried-and-tested genre and is working with movie hardman Jason Statham on a singing movie, according to Britain's The Sun newspaper.
A source tells the publication, "Guy and Jason are collaborating closely on this top secret musical project. They're well into development and realise they’re probably going to get a lot of stick.
"But Guy's of the opinion that people have been having a pop at him throughout his career, so he couldn't care less. He wants to do something audacious and a musical is just that."
Statham has publicly claimed he loves Fox's So You Think You Can Dance?, and I'm sure there's a couple of people out there that would be interested to see what else that muscly body and raspy voice can do other than beat the shit out of people with style. Color us intrigued.
