Tatum's next iced

08.10.2009

Phil Carlo's book's cover

Good news and bad news these days for Channing Tatum: Lots of people liked GI JOE so he'll be able to request top dollars on his next film, but his next film won't be the anticipated biopic of vicious hit man Richard Kuklinsk called THE ICE MAN. That film is dead as Dillinger, and Tatum himself has something to do with it.

Talking to the New York Post, author Phil Carlo, who wrote the book on which the film was being based, claims he pulled the plug on the project indefinitely, after Producer Lorenzo di Bonavetura's option on the book had expired. Pleas for extension while looking to secure financing left Carlo quite cold, mostly because of the casting choice.

"I had to turn him down. I really hated the idea of Channing Tatum." the writer confessed. "I told di Bonaventura that this is not the guy to play one of the most feared killers of the 20th Century. I think Mickey Rourke would really be good." Tatum DID play Pretty Boy Floyd in PUBLIC ENEMIES, but Duke probably has much more weight...

The actor surely won't lose much sleep over it. He's got piles of money coming in with the quasi-assured JOE sequel, in addition to 4 upcoming movies already in the can and 4 more already being prepped.

Extra Tidbit: Not to mention Tatum's banging Jenna Dewan. She's probably consoling him right now.

A GUIDE TO RECOGNIZING YOUR SAINTS and Tatum's performance were great. He was also great in STOP-LOSS. He's like one of the rare new breed pretty boys that actually excels at harder drama than being just pure man-candy.

Correction

Tatum is banging Jenna Dewan LEGALLY as they were just recently married. Guide to Saints was an amazing piece of work I have to admit not to mention it was filmed not far from me.

Im sure some of you seen A Guide to Recognizing your Saints? I thought he was DAMN good in that, other than that though... hmm i don't really know. I like the guy though, I'll give him his chances (by thats few and far between)

I was going to rip Tatum a new one, but everyone else did, besides, he was in Public Enemies for five minutes, and all he did was get shot in the back running away.

alright...

good for Carlo to pull the plug, and not sell out to the dollar...Tatum would have completely ruined this movie...Has anyone ever seen the Iceman Interviews...Tatum is NOTHING like Kuklinski...couple that with the fact that he can't act and you'd have a recipe for disaster.

Channing Tatum, Paul Walker and Hayden Christensen are like fuckin triplets. None of them have any talent yet they've all got big franchises on their hands. (When G.I. Joe gets its sequels that is).

Channing Tatum is one of the worst actors working today. He has as much range as a stale loaf of bread.
