Channing Tatum To Play Someone Who Doesn’t Fight Or Dance

Channing Tatum must have some hidden talents that I am not able to see. On the talent wattage-spectrum, I believe Tatum falls in the ultraviolet category – some may pick up on it with the right equipment, but it is all but invisible to the naked eye.

One man who clearly owns a pair of Channing Tatum goggles is Dito Montiel. Tatum’s director on the forthcoming “Fighting” as well as the actor’s “serious” movie “A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints”, Montiel has again cast Tatum for his third directorial effort – “The Brotherhood of the Rose”.

Montiel is writing and directing “Brotherhood”, an adaptation of a novel by David Morrell that had a previous life as a 1989 NBC miniseries, for Warner Brothers. The story revolves around two orphaned brothers named Romulus and Remus (how original) who are raised by an American CIA operative to become part of a Manchurian Candidate-style squad of assassins. Naturally, the orphans don’t know their foster pop is brain-washing them, but when they find out I bet they are going to be pissed!

Known primarily for playing meatheads with heart in films like “Step Up” and “She’s The Man”, Channing Tatum will soon be seen in the role of Pretty Boy Floyd alongside Christian Bale and Johnny Depp in Michael Mann’s “Public Enemies”. I can only assume he got the job because he looked like Pretty Boy Floyd. Either that or Michael Mann watched “Step Up 2” after staring into the sun.
