Ritchie to direct musical?
Guy Ritchie is turning his back on directing gangster films - he's reportedly working on a movie musical.
The star is well known for his crime projects such as Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch.
But he's set for a departure from the tried-and-tested genre and is working with movie hardman Jason Statham on a singing movie, according to 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 theyre 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."
