Channing Tatum Set to Direct and Produce New Film
Channing Tatum is to assume a new role behind the camera by co-directing and producing a new movie.
The Magic Mike star is taking on an adaptation of young-adult novel Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock, which tells the story of a student who plots to kill his best friend and then himself.
According to editors at The Hollywood Reporter, Tatum is in talks with movie bosses to play the troubled teenager’s teacher who tries to help him, along with directing and producing duties.
The book was written by Matthew Quick, the author of Silver Linings Playbook which was adapted into an Oscar-winning movie in 2012.
