Universal Pictures has picked up an untitled musical comedy which has Channing Tatum and Joseph Gordon-Levitt attached to star. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that the project is described as an R-rated comedy centering on two pilots experiencing a misadventure. Universal picked up the project through a competitive bidding situation, but it isn't clear what other studios were vying for this Untitled Musical Comedy project.
Marc Platt, who produced the hit musical Wicked, is producing alongside Adam Siegel through their Marc Platt Productions company. Joseph Gordon-Levitt is producing through his hitRECord Films company, alongside Channing Tatum, Reid Carolin and Peter Kiernan's company Free Association. Kirstin Lowe, Universal's senior vice-president of production, will oversee the project for the studio.Read More
Filmmaker Steven Soderbergh has been "retired" from directing features since 2013, after he made the thriller Side Effects and the HBO TV movie Behind the Candelabra. Last night, reports from Variety and Deadline surfaced that claimed the filmmaker is coming out of his film directorial retirement with a project entitled Lucky Logan, which reportedly has Channing Tatum and Michael Shannon attached to star.
The original Variety story claimed that the project was actually titled Hillbilly Heist, and that Channing Tatum is starring with Matt Damon. That report was updated/corrected after Deadline revealed that the movie is actually called Lucky Logan, and that the two leads are actually Channing Tatum and Michael Shannon. Regardless of the title and the lead actors, no story details have surfaced, and it isn't known who wrote the screenplay. Variety's sources claim that the director recently got his hands on the screenplay and quickly fell in love with the premise.Read More
Channing Tatum is no stranger to dressing up in strange costumes and dancing for other people's enjoyment. He even made a movie about it called Magic Mike, which recounted his time spent as a male exotic dancer. We never guessed the Hollywood superstar would be dressing up as Elsa to perform the hit song 'Let it Go' from Frozen. But that's exactly what he did for the next intense episode of Spike's Lip Sync Battle.
Lip Sync Battle has become immensely popular since it's premiere in April of last year. And plenty of Celebrities have stopped by in the months since, pulling out all the stops to give the best performances possible. It is a war, after all. And now, we get a sneak peek at what will surely become one of the greatest Lip Syncs ever caught on video. Channing Tatum not only pretends to belt out 'Let it Go', he does so dressed as main character Elsa, which requires him to go in drag.Read More
Channing Tatum has a reputation for being a very sexy dude. He's also known for his whip-smart comedy chops, which he's put on display in the 21 Jump Street movies. Now, he can add another talent to the list. And that's being able to scare kids better than the Boogey Man. Channeling his inner-Victor Salva, the actor looked like a real creep after climbing into what he at first thought was just an innocent child-friendly Halloween costume.
What was supposed to be a magical time of year turned into a real nightmare for Tatum's young daughter when he decided to drop by her Halloween carnival. The Hundred Acre Woods will never be the same after Channing Tatum decided to go with a store bought outfit, not having the time to make his own. The infamous bear certainly got a make-over, though we're not sure Christopher Robin or Piglet would approve. The results of Channing Tatum's costume attempts are both hilarious and terrifying. While you might want a shirtless Channing grinding on your lap at any given social occasion, this is one version of the actor you would not want staring at you through your kitchen window.Read More
Actor/producer Channing Tatum is finally starting to get one of his passion projects off the ground, literally and figuratively. We reported last week that director Darren Aronofsky has signed on to direct an Untitled Evel Knievel Biopic for Sony Pictures, which has long had Channing Tatum attached to star in and produce. While we still don't know when production will begin, it seems the actor has already started his motorcycle training, posting a new video to his Instagram page earlier this week, where he is seen going over a few small jumps on a motorcycle.
It isn't known which of these two riders in the video is Channing Tatum, or who the other individual is, although we assume that the other person is the actor's trainer. The actor admitted that he has "a lot to learn," but he also called the experience fun and "completely terrifying in a good way." No story details have been revealed yet, but the original screenplay was written by Channing Tatum's producing partner Reid Carolin, with Scott Silver (The Fighter) providing a new rewrite.Read More
After years of development, Channing Tatum's Untitled Evel Knievel Biopic finally seems to be moving forward, with The Tracking Board reporting that Darren Aronofsky has signed on to direct. Peter Berg was attached to direct back in April, but dropped out for unknown reasons. Channing Tatum's longtime producing partner Reid Carolin wrote the original screenplay, but that will now be rewritten by Scott Silver (The Fighter).
Evel Knievel, born Robert Craig Knievel, became a world-famous stuntman and entertainer in the 1960s and 1970s. The performer got his start by jumping over crates of rattlesnakes and mountain lions to provide for his family. After performing on the state fair circuit in Indio, California, Evel Knievel suffered the first of his numerous injuries, which lead to his stunt troupe disbanding while he recuperated. He ended up going solo, jumping cars and other vehicles instead of animals, as he became a household name.Read More
