Will Channing Tatum be a Man from U.N.C.L.E.?
The search is still on for two male leads to star in THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E.. Everyone has been named from George Clooney to Alexander Skarsgard to Bradley Cooper but no one has jumped on board.
Now it seems that Channing Tatum is being eyed for one of the leads in the film. I would presume it's the Napoleon Solo role that Clooney was supposed to take on. Deadline does not specify which, however they do mention that Steven Soderbergh has been looking for someone to replace Clooney since he moved on due to an upcoming surgery.
Soderbergh has been working with Tatum and his BFF Alex Pettyfer on MAGIC MIKE. This makes me wonder if Soderbergh will ask Pettyfer to take on the other role of Illya Kuryakin if Tatum accepts. Maybe they can be the new power duo! I really hope not.
I bet Tatum will take it unless he has something else particularly juicy lined up.
