Channing Tatum

Channing Tatum is further stretching himself by taking on The Contortionist's Handbook, an adaptation of the Craig Clevinger novel of the same name that he will co-produce as well as star in.

According to, Tatum will play a forger who moves smoothly from one identity to the next because of a strict code of conduct that keeps him from getting caught or having to deal with his own troubled past. That gets upended when he falls for a beautiful woman with her own dark secret.

No director has yet been hired, but Robin Shushan wrote the screenplay. The production is expected to get underway late next year. In addition to Tatum, the film will have Das Films’ Sriram Das, GreeneStreet’s John Penotti, Tim Williams and Sidney Kimmel on board as producers.

Tatum is about to get to work on the romantic tearjerker The Vow, co-starring Rachel McAdams, which we last told you about HERE. He's also in line to reprise his role as "Duke" in G.I. Joe 2, which is in the works at Paramount, while The Dilemma, from director Ron Howard, and The Eagle, from Kevin Macdonald, are already in the can.
