Tatum's next

If I had to bet on any new(ish) actor to be the next big thing I'd think extremely hard about putting my money on Shia "The Beef" Labeouf and then at the last minute shove it all into Channing Tatum's corner. Latest news is that he's set to move from supporting role to lead actor in Dito Montiel's next (at this moment untitled) action flick.

Apparently the film is to be "a rough-hewn heroic tale about realizing dreams of glory, putting audiences ringside at high-stakes underground street fights. Mr. Tatum (who also starred last year in the sleeper hit Step Up) will star as Sean Arthur, a young man who scrapes up a living scalping tickets in NYC. With family tragedy in his past and his father keeping him at a distance, this outsider has little to motivate him. A chance encounter with a veteran street-fighting coach leads to a whole new career for Sean. The ensuing bouts get tough, especially with the criminal element horning in, so Sean gets tougher. He will fight to win, not only the prize money but also the unexpected new relationships that are strengthening him."

I hope you guys saw Dito Montiel's A GUIDE TO RECOGNIZING YOUR SAINTS because it was bananas. If you didn't go out and check it out now. Seriously.
Extra Tidbit: There's a lotta talent in RECOGNIZING YOUR SAINTS; Robert Downey Jr., The Beef, Tatum and Rosario Dawson. Done deal.
