It's only a week or so since we learned that he was setting up The Contortionist's Handbook as a project to produce and star in. Now, already, Channing Tatum is also looking at Ten Year, an ensemble drama about a college reunion.
Jamie Linden, who penned the Tatum-starring adaptation of Nicholas Sparks' Dear John, is writing the screenplay with a particular set of actors in mind: Tatum of course, his wife Jenna Dewan, Anna Faris and Chris Pratt, Chris Pine, and Scott Porter. They'd all play a group of friends, reuniting ten years after graduation. It's a Big Chill for the next generation. Have we finished with the last generation yet?
Nobody's signed anything yet, so, depending on everyone's schedules, that casting wish-list may alter during the run-up to shooting. Tatum is currently making The Vow for Michael Sucsy, and production on Ten Year, pending boring things like financing, is pencilled in for November.
