Channing Tatum Hub
The biggest news Feig dropped between courses was that he is in development on a romantic comedy in which he'd like Tatum to star, which he expects will turn the genre on its head (worth noting-- Tatum's reps have emphasized that Feig's enthusiasm does not mean anything is actually happening yet. So this is mainly wishing and hoping at this point). But before you start pondering which pretty starlet with share space on its poster, let me tell you it's a gay rom-com. It's premise is that a normal schmo gets involved with someone as crazy hot as the Sexiest Man of The Year, and basically can’t cope.
Tatum isn't officially involved in the project, but he sounds like the perfect choice. So who does Feig see envision playing opposite Tatum? New SNL member John Milhiser.
If you were one of the many people who helped catapult G.I. Joe: Retaliation to a $100 million worldwide dollar box office take this weekend, you probably don't remember the scene above. That's because the bar scene in which Channing Tatum, Dwayne Johnson and a shirtless D.J. Cotrona appear was cut from the final version of the film.
Director Jon M. Chu told me that the bar scene with Tatum, Cotrona, and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson was cut and re-shot early last year — before the film's release date was pushed from June 2012 to this weekend — without Cotrona because it wasn't successfully conveying the warmth of the relationship between Tatum and Johnson's characters. "It was more plot-driven," Chu said. "It didn't set the tone right for movie. We wanted something a little more jokey." So out went Cotrona, and in went a scene of Tatum and Johnson bonding while playing a military videogame. With their shirts on.
Channing Tatum was at a preview screening for the new film White House Down and told British tab The Sun that his feelings for George Clooney extend further than simple admiration:
"Well I’ve spent time with George Clooney and he’s the most interesting man on the planet. He can do it all. Yep, I guess what I’m saying is I’d have sex with him."
