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
It's official! Channing Tatum is Gambit! Despite reports that the actor was wanting to back out of the project, THR confirms that Channing Tatum has officially closed his deal, making him part of 20th Century Fox's Marvel family. The film will open in theaters October 2016.
Most expected that the actor would eventually sign his deal. And fans were shocked to hear that he wanted out. The project seemed to be falling apart as sources close to the production suggested that Fox and Channing Tatum couldn't come to terms on the contract. While that is now proven untrue, it is said that the studio and the actor did hit a sensitive spot in negotiations. That sensitive spot was not disclosed to the public.Read More
The shake-up comes just as the studio is in the process of testing female leads alongside Channing Tatum, including Spectre star Léa Seydoux. Channing Tatum was also set to produce Gambit with his partner Reid Carolin, but it isn't known if he plans to stay on as a producer, or if producers Lauren Shuler Donner and Simon Kinberg will continue on without them. Whatever the case may be, a decision will have to be made very soon.
Just a few days ago, a report surfaced that the superhero movie will start production this fall, in Channing Tatum's hometown of New Orleans, with casting already under way for a number of supporting characters. Joshua Zetumer wrote the screenplay, but no story details have been given at this time. It isn't immediately known what is causing the deal between Channing Tatum and the studio to collapse, but if he does in fact leave the project, it would be quite surprising, since the actor heavily campaigned for the role through social media and various interviews, while he was promoting 22 Jump Street last year.Read More
Paramount is currently developing G.I. Joe 3 with director D.J. Caruso, which reportedly focuses on Dwayne Johnson's Roadblock character. Given Channing Tatum's death in G.I. Joe Retaliation, it seems unlikely that he will return as Duke for G.I. Joe 3, but screenwriter Aaron Berg came on board in April to write a new draft of the script, so anything is possible. What do you think about Channing Tatum openly dissing G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra? You can check out the actor's audio interview from earlier today in the player below.Read More
