Channing Tatum Wants A Bad Romance
Warm Bodies' Jonathan Levine will write and direct

31 October 2013  |  Written by James White  |  Source: The Hollywood Reporter

Don’t look at the title for Bad Romance and think that Channing Tatum, who is in early talks to star, will be dressing up as Lady Gaga any time soon (unless there are some Halloween pictures we’re yet to see). He’s actually just considering the new film from Warm Bodies’ Jonathan Levine.

No information about Bad Romance has been released yet, since The Hollywood Reporter only brings word that Tatum is looking to get involved as the star and that he’ll also be producing the film with Iron Horse Entertainment partner Reid Carolin. It's tempting to envision it as a feature length version of the Gaga video, but that's probably not the idea.

Levine, who also made All The Boys Love Mandy Lane, The Wackness and 50/50, is set to write and direct. He’s attached to several films, including Jamaica and Little Girl Lost.

Tatum likewise has plenty on his To Do List. He’s developing a film about stuntman Evel Knievel and has been pondering a sequel to Magic Mike. He’s at work right now on comedy sequel 22 Jump Street and will show up in Foxcatcher, Jupiter Ascending, Book Of Life and – in voice only – The Lego Movie, which just released a new trailer (see it here).
