BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Adam Sandler didn't exactly have the greatest 2014. Blended performed nowhere near the level of the actor's past big releases, and both of his recent attempts at more serious fair - Men, Women & Children and The Cobbler - got largely negative responses following their premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Celebrities will go to great lengths to remain hidden from the public eye, and the new trend seems to be going completely incognito while surrounded by the hordes of thousands. Take Channing Tatum, for example.
I’m legitimately comforted by the fact that the ultra-serious dude from Foxcatcher -- the guy who appears like he could snap my neck like a twig – sends hilariously pompous emails to his friends and colleagues when he’s experiencing a true upbeat moment in his professional life.
The Daily Beast continues to mine material out of countless Sony emails, and this time unearths a series of conversations between Channing Tatum and Sony Chair Amy Pascal about the 21 Jump Street star kick-starting a Ghostbusters spinoff with himself and Chris Pratt in the leads.
The Wall Street Journal shares a few details, even though nothing is set in stone. They say that Men In Black stars Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones “would not be included in the movie, at least in prominent roles.” They also dangle the tease that Jump Street geniuses Phil Lord and Chris Miller would produce this mash up event, and “may direct it.”
Phil Lord and Christopher Miller have been talking about 23 Jump Street. And while they have admitted that it is currently in development, they are still a little cagey about it actually making it to the big screen.
Quentin Tarantino has proven time and time again throughout his career that he has absolutely fantastic casting sensibilities, and his upcoming western The Hateful Eight doesn't look like it will be breaking that tradition. The Academy Award-winning director has already brought together an amazing ensemble for the film, but today it looks like he's adding yet another notable name: Channing Tatum.
This year may find Channing Tatum in the in his very fist Oscar campaign. The actor's performance in Bennett Miller's upcoming sports drama Foxcatcher has been earning rave reviews, and while most of us haven't had the chance to actually see the movie yet, his passion and intensity getting into the role is very much apparent in this newly revealed behind the scenes story.
Wolverine won’t be the only X-Men character to get a solo film. The card-throwing, Southern charmer Gambit is officially getting his own movie! Read all about what’s in store for the glowing-eyed mutant.
While the X-Men film franchise moves forward with projects like X-Men: Apocalypse, Deadpool and a rumored live-action TV show, one aspect of the series have been relatively quiet recently. Back in May, reports indicated that Channing Tatum would play Gambit in a standalone movie, the actor repeatedly expressing his interest in playing the Ragin’ Cajun. But it many be years before we actually get to see his take on the character.
They met on the set of Step Up. Since then, Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum married, had a baby, and now they're collaborating once more on Magic Mike XXL. But not in the way you might suspect.
Magic Mike was one of 2012’s most surprising hits, as it ultimately grossed close to $170 million from a measly budget of just $7 million. As is Hollywood’s want when a film is unexpectedly successful, a sequel was instantly requested, and Channing Tatum, who both inspired, produced and starred in the original, was only happy to oblige. Now, just over two summers after the original was released, the full, official synopsis for its follow-up, Magic Mike XXL, has been unveiled too.
Channing Tatum might now be best known for playing the dumb-as-a-stump undercover cop Greg Jenko in the 21 Jump Street movies, but audiences are about to find out if he can convincingly pull off playing an absolute genius.
I could dig, analyze and appreciate Foxcatcher for years. All of that being said, Foxcatcher is remarkable. It is a stirring thesis about how wealthy power brokers manipulate situations, and how those without influence are seduced.
It was just a couple weeks ago that Channing Tatum was back in theaters once again playing the mentally deficient Officer Greg Jenko and stirring up laughs in Phil Lord and Chris Miller's 22 Jump Street. His second live action film of 2014, as you can see from the brand new poster you see above, won't be quite as smile-inducing.
This seems like a fantastic assemblage of talents, especially giving the Coens a few familiar faces, and some exciting new players (like Tatum and Fiennes) who are proving capable of comedy in movies by the likes of Wes Anderson, Phil Lord and Chris Miller.
With the cast of 22 Jump Street currently making the press rounds, MTV took the opportunity to ask Channing Tatum about his possible first superhero movie. The actor confirmed that there have been discussions about him taking the part, but that there are still a lot of things that need to be done before the film can actually be made
As if the How To Train Your Dragon franchise wasn't enough of a killer app against Disney's best friend, Fox is now showing us our first glimpse at the Guillermo Del Toro produced film “The Book of Life.” The results look extremely promising.
Channing Tatum spoke candidly about Steven Soderbergh and soon-to-shoot Magic Mike XXL, confessing that the Magic Mike director would not only be the sequel's cinematographer, but also its camera operator and film editor.
The question is, when would we see Channing Tatum's Gambit? Given that Tatum is an A-List actor, it seems unlikely he'd play a bit role in X-Men: Apocalypse. Could Fox be planning Gambit as a starring vehicle for Tatum, possibly for that unrevealed 2018 release date?
