Channing Tatum to star in The Contortionist's Handbook
Posted by: Nathan Swank
Channing Tatum has become quite the hot commodity lately. He’s already working with director Ron Howard in THE DILEMMA and Steven Soderbergh in HAYWIRE, along with a slew of other films. Now we hear that he is not only starring in but also co-producing THE CONTORTIONIST’S HANDBOOK. Robin Shushan will be adapting the script from the novel by Craig Clevenger.
The story is about a con artist (Tatum) who is a master at forging and changing identities. He has kept his work a secret up until he falls for a woman who has a secret of her own. I like Tatum in films like STEP UP and G.I JOE: THE RISE OF COBRA, but he hasn’t completely proved himself to have acting talent quite yet, like DEAR JOHN. With as much work and talented people he is working with I’m sure he’ll come around.
