Tatum will line up alongside Samuel L Jackson, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern, Kurt Russell and Tim Roth in the movie, which is said to similar in tone to a tense stage play. The story follows a pair of bounty hunters transporting prisoners through 19th-century Wyoming. As we reported earlier this year, Jennifer Lawrence is being sought for one of the other major roles, though it's unclear which. Further characters yet to be cast include a renegade Confederate soldier and a female prisoner in a saloon.

Channing Tatum admits playing Mark Schultz in 'Foxcatcher' was his most painful role.
It seems Channing Tatum is far happier flexing his enviable Hollywood body on a stripper's pole or pulling off some smooth moves on the dancefloor when it comes to movie roles, as his latest part as wrestler Mark Schultz has been his hardest yet.
Channing Tatum [L] is under Steve Carell's [R] tutelage in 'Foxcatcher'
The '22 Jump Street' star is hardly an idler having growing up playing all kinds of sport including martial arts, but that doesn't mean his new work out routine for his role as an Olympic grappler in 'Foxcatcher' was any more of an easy ride. 'I challenge anyone who thinks their sport is harder to come and try it', says Channing Tatum, who landed a college football scholarship as a high school graduate. 'This has been the most painful movie I have ever done. I never want to wrestle again.'
And the winner is... well, you already know, don't you?
Ok, it’s time to talk box office stats again. Unlike the past 2 weeks, however, there are actually some interesting new contenders this week. David Fincher’s smash hit Gone Girl has finally been dethroned. Predictably, the new chamion is the Brad Pitt starrer Fury, which took the throne with $23,5 million over the three-day period, easily topping Gone Girl’s $17,8 million (stats according to Box Office Mojo). Fury, a dramatic and gory WWII tale, exposing the horrors of war, also stars Shia LaBeouf, Logan Lerman, Michael Peña and Scott Eastwood. Even so, Pitt who produced and starred, took center stage during the film’s promo rounds.
"Studios use star power as the No. 1 marketing tool, and Brad Pitt has that," says Phil Contrino, box office analyst for BoxOffice.com. "But it's not star power alone which gets people to the theaters. Brad Pitt picks smart pictures that people want to see."

The 34 year-old actor opens up about how dealing with ADHD and dyslexia effected his education as a child.
Hollywood heartthrob Channing Tatum is carving out a very successful movie career for himself, but according to the 34 year-old actor, finding fame and fortune wasn't due his intellect, especially since he struggled with ADHD and dyslexia while growing up.

'The Book of Life' may have been in better hands at DreamWorks.
When the first trailer hit for The Book of Life, we got very, very excited. The project had originally been optioned by DreamWorks animation in 2007 but never got beyond development due to creative differences.
'The Book of Life' looks stunning, but some criticsaren't enamoured
In 2012, Reel FX took over and pulled in Guillermo del Toro to produce the movie, then known as Day of the Dead. 20th Century Fox announced it would distribute the movie and Channing Tatum, Zoe Saldana, Diego Luna and Christina Applegate joined the cast.

Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) is brought to the Foxcatcher institute by multi-millionaire John du Pont (Steve Carell). Mark is a wrestler, and a good one at that. He confides in du Pont that he wants to be the world's best wrestler. Du Pont himself has his own motives - he wants to be the coach for the world's best wrestling team. But as training steadily creates friction between Mark, his brother Dave (Mark Ruffalo), and du Pont, it appears that not only are the athletes on edge, but their coach is actually becoming more and more mentally unstable.

Matthew McConaughey will not be reprising his role as strip club owner Dallas in the upcoming sequel to Magic Mike, Magic Mike XXL. The 2015 film may have lost one of its biggest stars but it's certainly making up for it by casting actresses such as Amber Heard, Andie MacDowell and Jada Pinkett Smith.

Sony are moving ahead with '23 Jump Street'.
After two movies that have grossed over $500 million on an overall budget of around $100 million, it's no surprise to report that Sony Pictures and Original Film are moving ahead with '23 Jump Street', with Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill returning as the leads. Rodney Rotham - one of the primary writers on the sequel - has been tasked with penning the third film.
It's unclear whether Phil Lord and Christopher Miller will be back to direct though Deadline confirms they are overseeing the script and will certainly be producers, at the very least. Should the duo want the directing job, it's theirs. Neal Moritz, Hill and Tatum are also on the producers list.

Bennett Miller's soon-to-be-released film Foxcatcher has been shown at the Telluride Film Festival in Colorado and the director has discussed what aspects of the story first attracted him to the project.

The trailer for Bennett Miller's upcoming film 'Foxcatcher' has been released. Based on a tragic true story, the film has already premiered at Cannes and Steve Carell, who plays a wrestling obsessed schizophrenic, has been highly praised by critics.
Steve Carell is almost unrecognisable as paranoid schizophrenia and wrestling obsessive John du Pont in the upcoming film Foxcatcher. Directed by Bennett Miller who was responsible for such films as Capote, the film is based on the true story of two brothers, Dave and Mark Schultz, who were Olympic wrestling gold medallists.
Channing Tatum and Steve Carell in Foxcatcher.
John du Pont is a multi-millionaire sports coach who has taken an interest in wrestling, wishing to train up a team for the upcoming 1988 Seoul Olympics at his state-of-the-art training facility. When Olympic Gold Medallist wrestler Mark Schultz catches his eye, Mark can't believe his luck having always felt overshadowed by his renowned older brother Dave. Mark and du Pont develop a strong father-son relationship that pretty soon begins to get a little unhealthy; Mark starts to realise that there's a lot more to du Pont than he initially thought as he starts to witness increasingly volatile and erratic behaviour from him. Nonetheless, he is overcome by jealousy on seeing du Pont's newfound obsession with his charismatic brother and through the whirlwind of unusual bonds, deepening insecurity and unstable emotions, tragedy of the worst kind is about to ensue.

Kevin Hart takes the lead in the comedy alongside Adam Brody, Michael Ealy, Jerry Ferrera, Regina Hall and La La Anthony.
'22 Jump Street' stars Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum entertained fans at the movie's New York premiere by posing alongside two real life police officers (much more official looking than their own characters in the crime comedy) named Officer Ross Dichter and Officer James Carosa. Officer Dichter can be seen placing Channing's hands in handcuffs.
Channing Tatum talks diaper changing skills and how every day with his daughter is "amazing."
Channing Tatum has made a pretty bold claim when it comes to his parenting skills. “I’m solid at diaper changing!” the Magic Mike actor revealed in an interview. He added: “If a guy isn’t good at changing a diaper I don’t know what he’s there for really, because for the first seven months or so, the mom is the end-all, be-all of everything.”
Tatum and wife Jenna Dewa-Tatum met in 2006 and married in 2009

They married in 2009 and on May 31 2013 their daughter Everly was born in London. “[Everly] does not like sitting still but I can [change the diaper] even when she’s crawling, standing up, doing the whole thing.”

The '22 Jump Street' reviews are hugely encouraging ahead of the movie's U.S bow this weekend.
'21 Jump Street' was an unexpected delighted in 2012 for olumbia with the seemingly mismatched team of Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill proving they had the comedy clout to not only pull off the movie adaptation of the teen series - but make it good. In the sequel - 22 Jump Street - the pair make the case for being considered one of the best new comedy duos around.
Jonah Hill [L] and Channing Tatum [R] in '22 Jump Street'
After making their way through high school (twice) Schmidt and Jenko are tasked with going undercover at a local college. However, when Jenko (Tatum) meets a kindred spirit on the football team and Schmidt infiltrates the bohemian art scene, they begin to question their ability work together.

'22 Jump Street' has scored strong reviews, proving that the comedy sequel is alive and well.
The central joke of Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum's follow-up 22 Jump Street is that sequels are by definition bigger and more complicated, but never quite as good as the original. Indeed, at every point the filmmakers one-up 2012's 21 Jump Street, from the fact that every crashed car explodes into a ball of flame to the new glass-and-steel headquarters for the undercover squad, just across the street from the old one.

Clearly this is a theory that's been adopted by Marvel for their Avengers family of movies, as the stakes keep getting higher and higher. But once you've saved Los Angeles, New York, London and the entire planet, where do you go? So now we have Thor's inter-realm shenanigans. And they're pushing it into a new level with this summer's Guardians of the Galaxy.

The Book Of Live will make you see death in a whole new light.
Death may not seem like an optimum subject for an animated feature, but in The Book of Life director Jorge Gutierrez quite literally brings the subject alive using vibrant colours and 3-D animation. Despite taking on what could be seen as a dark subject matter, Gutierrez has crafted a beautiful piece of moving art, which will surely enchant and enthral viewers. It might not hit theatres until October 17th, but we’re betting that this one could just be the next big animated feature.
Manolo is fighting for the affection of his love Maria
The Book of the Life begins with two gods betting on the outcome of a love triangle between a girl named Maria and her two suitors, the arrogant Joaquin and the much more charming Manolo. When Maria comes close to choosing Manolo, one of the gods intervenes, poisoning him to ensure Joaquin will be chosen.

A consistently hilarious stream of in-jokes keeps the audience in fits of laughter even if there's virtually no plot to this follow-up to the 2012 hit 21 Jump Street. Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum revive their amusing double-act to poke fun at sequels and franchises amid silly set-pieces and starry cameos. And it gives filmmakers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller their second terrific comedy of the year, after The Lego Movie.
Following their successful bust of a high school drug ring, undercover officers Schmidt and Jenko (Hill and Tatum) are assigned by their grumpy captain (Ice Cube) to infiltrate a university and track down who's dealing the new drug whyphy. But both get distracted by life on campus: Schmidt begins a romance with Maya (Amber Stevens), while Jenko finds his meathead soul-mate in football teammate Zook (Wyatt Russell). With their partnership in jeopardy, Schmidt and Jenko must refocus on a spring break trip to Mexico, where they discover an old nemesis (Peter Stormare) on the loose.
Using a non-stop series of gags about how follow-up movies are more expensive and less original, the filmmakers go about proving this hypothesis with amusingly overwrought sets and a chaotic, derivative narrative that has very little momentum. Meanwhile, they pack every moment of the film with witty humour that's played expertly by Hill and Tatum, who rekindle their chemistry with a steady barrage of gay double entendre that reveals the movie's true nature as a brom-com. On the other hand, neither the actors nor the filmmakers are willing to push things too far, so they settle for silly vulgarity instead of any black comedy or edgy humour.

Why on Earth have the Wachowskis put the skids on their dazzling summer blockbuster?
Jupiter Ascending won't see release until February next year, it has recently been announced. The unusual, late minute move marks the movie's opening pushed back seven months despite promotion for the sci-fi blockbuster having reached a peak.
We were excited way back in March for the Wachowski brothers futuristic slingshot into space, which stars Mila Kunis, Channing Tatum and Sean Bean but have now been told that we'll have to wait until next February to see the movie's special effects, which look to be awesome.
It is actually the special effects department that has reportedly delayed the movie. "With the July release date, they were just not going to make it on time," said Warner Bros. domestic distribution chief Dan Fellman, via Variety. "A lot of the issue for us was getting it ready for the international release, since the foreign territories need additional time."

The star is on the charm offensive after his homophobic slur
Jonah Hill landed himself in a bit of trouble recently when he told a paparazzi to “suck his d*ck” and called him a “f**ggot”. Having been a staunch supporter of LGBT rights for his whole life, the scandal did seem like a surprise, and Hill has offered up numerous heartfelt apologies on both The Howard Stern Show and The Tonight Show.
Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum in '22 Jump Street'
“This person had been following me around all day, had been saying hurtful things about my family, really hurtful things about me personally,” Hill explained. “And I played into exactly what he wanted and lost my cool. And in that moment, I said a disgusting word that does not at all reflect how I feel about any group of people… I’m not at all defending my choice of words, but I’m happy to be the poster boy for thinking about what you say and how those words — even if you don’t intend them — and how they’re rooted in hate and that’s bullshit and I shouldn’t have said that.”

Change your diaries, we’re going to have to wait until next year for 'Jupiter Ascending'.
It’s time to change our summer viewing plans, because sadly, Jupiter Ascending will not be coming to a theatre near you this July. The Wachowskis’ ‘space opera’, starring Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum was scheduled for release on July 18th 2014, but now it won't be coming to us until next February!
It's now a much longer wait for Jupiter Ascending
So why the change? Well, apparently it’s all down to those tricky visual effects. If you’ve seen the trailer, you’ll know that Jupiter Ascending is heavy on the special effects, so it’s no real surprise that they could be the cause of the hold up. Dan Fellman, Warner Bros’ president of domestic distribution said, “We’ve been trying like hell to get this finished, but there are over 2,000 visual effects shots in the movie, and it’s just not gonna happen in time.”
The Wachowskis latest sci-fi epic has been pushed back seven months and will now hit theatres on February 6th 2015.
Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum's debuting partnership on the big-screen will have to wait as the release date of the sci-fi epic, 'Jupiter Ascending,' has been postponed until 2015.
Originally scheduled to hit theatres on July 18th, Warner Bros. has decided to delay the premiere in order to have enough time to complete extensive special effects.

As sequels go, this ones flying high
The buddy cop movie is back, and officers Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) have to go back to college as undercover agents trying to get to the root of a drug doing the rounds on campus in '22 Jump Street'. Of course, the mission doesn’t go exactly to plan via a concoction of college memories and nasty gangsters.

With the extreme success of 21 Jump Street, Phil Lord and Chris Miller were under intense pressure to deliver with this sequel. But if the early reviews are anything to go by, they’ve nailed it.

Jonah Hill's gay slur could affect the performance of '22 Jump Street'.
Just as Sony was stepping up its promotion for 22 Jump Street - one of its big hitters for this summer - Jonah Hill has dropped a homophobic sized bombshell on proceedings. The 30-year-old has a pretty clean reputation in Hollywood and is generally considered one of the nice guys of comedy, though, under pressure from a persistent paparazzo, the actor used a homophobic slur in a video obtained by TMZ.com.

20th Century Fox released the first trailer of the upcoming 3D animate comedy, from Mexican director Jorge Gutierrez and producer Guillermo del Toro, 'The Book of Life,' and it will surely mesmerize cinemagoers, taking them on a vibrant journey into the afterlife.
del Toro is the producer of the flick

In Mexico, two best friends Manolo (Diego Luna) and Joaquin (Channing Tatum) fall in love with the same girl, Maria (Zoe Saldana and so both face each other for her love. Two spirits passing through the world, La Muerte (Kate del Castillo) and Xibalba (Ron Perlman), make a bet over who will triumph out of the two. Muerte on Manolo and Xibalba on Joaquin.

From producer Guillermo Del Toro, The Book Of Life is an animated comedy film directed by Jorge Gutierrez and written by Gutierrez and Doug Langdale (Aladdin: The Return of Jafar). The Book Of Life sees Gutierrez attempt a Nightmare Before Christmas esque Tim Burton style, with jovially dark animation. With exceptional visuals and a story of fortitude, The Book Of Life should be a loveable film for all.
When recalling the drunken incident with his fellow co-stars from 2006, the 34 year-old actor admits: "I definitely kicked in a window that night."

His death has been described as a "huge loss for the toy industry."
Donald Levine, the man credited with helping to create the G.I. Joe doll, one of the most iconic American toys alongside Barbie, has passed away following a battle with cancer. He died at the Home & Hospice Care of Rhode Island.
Channing Tatum played G.I. Joe in 2013's 'Retaliation'
Levine’s influence on the action figure is remembered for creating the legacy it currently holds today. From a 11 1/2-inch articulated figure with 21 moving parts, which was clad in military-style gear due to the amount of veterans working at Hasbro at the time, Levine and his team would create a global brand of action figures.

‘Foxcatcher’, with its range of themes beyond wrestling glory, has quickly become the most talked about and well liked film at the Cannes Film Festival and critics have hastened to agree.
Murder, wrestling and the French Riviera don’t seem to go hand in hand, yet Steve Carell’s Foxcatcher has definitely won over the crowds and critics at Cannes Film Festival.
Channing Tatum and Steve Carell star in Foxcatcher.
Foxcatcher revolves around a prominent sports sponsor John du Pont (Carell), who suffered from paranoid schizophrenia and was convicted of murder in 1996 after he shot Olympic wrestling champion Dave Schultz (played by Mark Ruffalo). Named after the farm in which du Pont set up a wrestling gym and subsequently shot Dave, it is based on an autobiography by Mark Schultz, Dave’s brother. As such, the film also follows the glory and tragedy of Mark (Channing Tatum) who went on to win a gold medal at the Olympic Games and two at the World Championships in the 1980s.

Mark Schultz is an Olympic Gold Medallist wrestler who is often overlooked as his older brother Dave is renowned in the same sport. One day, Mark is invited to the luxurious home of sports sponsor John du Pont, who wishes to train up a team for the forthcoming 1988 Seoul Olympics at his own training facility. Mark is thrilled to be recognised for his talents for once, and begins to appreciate du Pont like a father. Unfortunately, it soon becomes clear that du Pont is not all he once appeared to be, being prone to increasingly volatile and erratic behaviour, and his support of Mark begins to get unhealthy. Not only that, but it seems he is now obsessed by the charismatic persona of Dave, and through jealousy and spiralling paranoia, tragedy of the ultimate kind is about to ensue.

The winner of the prestigious Palme d'Or will be announced on May 25, which of these Cannes Film Festival offerings will take home the prize?
So, we’ve got to admit we’re sort of gunning for Mike Leigh’s film Mr. Turner to win the Palme d’Or 2014, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t other films in the running for the prestigious award. Among the 18 films competing to win the highest prize awarded at the Cannes Film Festival, the winner of which which will be announced on May 25, these are the films we think are most likely to scoop the award.

Channing Tatum & Mark Ruffalo Take On Challenging Roles In The Real-Life Sports Drama, 'Foxcatcher.'
Based on the real life story of US wrestling coach John du Pont, Foxcatcher is another gritty sports drama that's probably headed straight for the awards after its wider release in November. The movie will be competing for the prized Palme D'Or at the prestigious film festival and the trailer gives us enough to suspect that Foxcatcher will be one of the key competitors.
'X-Men: Days of Future Past' producer, Lauren Shuler Donner, confirmed the casting news. The 34 year-old hunk will be joining the team of superheroes.
Channing Tatum is set to be the newest superhero in Hollywood.
The 34 year-old actor has signed on to play the character 'Gambit' in future 'X-Men' film instalments, according to film producer Lauren Shuler Donner.
Donner, who produced 'X-Men: Days Of Future Past,' confirmed the casting news to Total Film on Tuesday (May 13th) at the London premiere of the new flick.

Schmidt and Jenko are two young cops who thought they'd seen the last of student culture after successfully arresting the supplier behind a high school narcotic in special division 21 Jump Street. However, given that they did such a good job at acting ten years younger, they've been enlisted to return to college to get to the bottom of a new drug that is going around high school graduates called Whyphy. This time they've been moved to 22 Jump Street, and the kids they have to deal with are much smarter - and way more dangerous. When Spring Break comes around, it feels like a perfect opportunity to nab the new suppliers but in order to do so, they need a little help. After visiting an old perp in jail, they begin to weave their way through the social circles of college - but that's easier said than done when their own relationship is struggling.

Prepare to let the Wachowski’s take you on an epic sc-fi journey in 'Jupiter Ascending'
‘Jupiter Ascending’ the Wachowski’s epic journey into space will be looking to expand our universe in July. The problem is we might just not be ready for it. A space opera of gigantic proportions, the new trailer has given us our best idea yet of what to expect from this out of this world summer blockbuster.
Mila Kunis finds out she has a date with destiny in 'Jupiter Ascending'
The Wachowski’s siblings are of course the minds that brought us 'The Matrix' trilogy, which set a pretty high bar for their future big screen endeavours. Their last outing ‘Cloud Atlas’ received a mixed response from critics, some thought it was an ambitious success which thoroughly paid off, while others found it a bit too much on all levels. If it’s an ambitious project you’re looking for, though, you might want to turn your attention to ‘Jupiter Ascending’. This intergalactic sci-fi adventure might just be the best showcase of the Wachowski’s writing and visual talents since the first ‘Matrix’.

Jupiter Jones has an unfortunate life, barely scraping by with her job cleaning toilets as a janitor. She wouldn't have thought that her life would ever be anything meaningful, but she couldn't be more wrong. One day she is captured and an attempt is made on her life, but she finds herself spectacularly rescued by a charming, if unusual-looking, warrior; a half-man, half-human hybrid who has been genetically modified for the interplanetary military. It's he who leads her to the truth about herself and her destiny. Having been born under a night sky where the stars aligned to form her extraordinary future, Jupiter is the foretold forthcoming Queen of the Universe who has been prophesised to usurp the power of the current King and Queen. Living in fear of their imminent fall from power, the rulers order her to be disposed of as soon as possible. Will Jupiter succeed in her rise to power, or will she be praying to return to her uneventful life on earth?

The Ellen DeGeneres Oscars Selfie: did Jennifer Lawrence have the best pose or was it Bradley Cooper, Brad Pitt...or Kevin Spacey?
Pretty much everyone has seen the Ellen Degeneres Oscars selfie by now; the celeb-packed pic that sent the Twittersphere into melt-down and quickly became the most retweeted image of all time. The Oscars host somehow gathered the cream of the awards' red carpet for last night's impromptu snap, which has become the evening's most shared and talked about image.
Ellen DeGeneres Oscar Selfie Has Become The Most-Shared Image On Twitter.
The glory of the Oscars selfie lies in the pure and unabashed joy seen on every one of its twelve featured Hollywood stars' faces. Gone are the pouts, poses and glowers of the red carpet pap-snap and instead we have a bunch of gorgeous and joyous actors ready to party at the year's biggest movie awards.
New trailer... who's excited?
There’s a new trailer out for the upcoming Channing Tatum starrer 22 Jump Street. There were previously two trailers – the red band and the green band. This one is the green band trailer, except it has a new scene attached to the end. It’s pretty funny, if ever so slightly… well, you’ll see.
22 Jump Street is the sequel to the 2012 hit 21 Jump Street (Sony didn’t get too creative with the titles) in which two deadbeat cops get sent to a high school to go undercover and bust a synthetic drug ring. In the new one, it looks like Jenko (Tatum) and Schmidt (Jonah Hill) are up to their old tricks. Only they’ve now graduated from high school (in more ways than one) and are investigating a new case at a local college. Like 21, the sequel is directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller from a story by Michael Bacall.
Continue reading: New "22 Jump Street Trailer" Is Familiar, But Still Funny
Inventive visuals and a seriously deranged script make this animated adventure far more enjoyable than we expect, especially as it brings out the childish creativity in everyone watching. Filmmakers Lord and Miller are experts at finding offbeat comedy in the most surprising places (see Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs or 21 Jump Street). And this movie is often jaw-droppingly entertaining.
It's set in a Lego city where construction worker Emmet (voiced by Pratt) follows instructions to the letter. Like everyone else, he has been lulled into complacency by President Business (Ferrell), whose inanely catchy pop songs (the insanely hummable Everything Is Awesome!) and mindless TV shows (Where Are My Pants?) keep people from thinking creatively. He's also concocting an insidious plan involving a secret weapon called the Kragle. Then Emmet inadvertently discovers the Piece of Resistance and is declared "The Special" by the underground rebel alliance led by Wyldstyle (Banks) and Vitruvius (Freeman). With help from Batman (Arnett), a patched-up pirate (Offerman) and a groovy kitty (Brie), they go off-grid to save their civilisation, pursued by the president's vicious enforcer (Neeson).
As the story spirals from the city to the Wild West and Cloud Cuckoo Land, it develops an insane, free-wheeling tone that can't help but spark our imaginations. And the sassy 3D animation adds to this by evoking surreal stop-motion classics like Gumby or The Magic Roundabout while referencing other movies and playing merrily with iconic characters. Hill, Smulders and Tatum turn up as a trio of frustrated superheroes, while Daniels and Williams offer a bit of Star Wars silliness. All of the vocal cast members dive into their characters with energy, bringing out the warped humour and pulling us into the action and even some emotional moments.

The 'Magic Mike' actor has turned his attention to a sequel even more spectacular than the original.
Channing Tatum has confirmed that a Magic Mike sequel is in the works by posting a photo of himself, pen and paper in hand, looking at a plaster bust of fellow actor Matthew Mcconaughey. Tatum, who had ditched his Magic Mike G-string and rip-off clothing, announced that he was writing the next in the semi-autobiographical stripper comedy's instalment.
Channing Tatum Has Confirmed That He's Writing The 'Magic Mike' Sequel.
"What better way to start writing #MagicMike2 than with my old friend Dallas?#runatribe," he captioned the photo in which he sports a feathered trilby and grey cardigan whilst working at his desk. It is said that the new movie will revolve around a roadtrip as the male strippers go on tour.
There's high anticipation for release of 'The Lego Movie'.
Danish company The Lego Group have partnered up with Warner Brothers for the first feature length Lego film, The Lego Movie, set to hit the big screen in 2014.
A child's imagination is what made Lego blocks what they were. They could make a spaceship, a Wild West shootout or even a pirate ship come to life; well, maybe for a few hours until the few remaining pieces left out were embedded in a parent's foot. Now it has reached a safer place for adults as the loveable figures make their way from the toy box onto the big-screen in 3D animation comes Warner Brothers production: 'The Lego Movie'. With a highly admirable voiceover cast of Will Arnett, Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson, Channing Tatum and Elizabeth Banks, the film looks ready to be a 2014 BLOCK-buster sensation.

Tatum teams up with Jonah Hill for another shot at the cop comedy.
The red line trailer has just been released for new cop comedy 22 Jump Street, the sequel to 2012's commercially and critically successful 21 Jump Street. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill will reprise their roles as Schmidt and Jenko, two undercover police officers who have another drug supplier to catch, only this time they've graduated from high school to college.
Channing Tatum & Jonah Hill Reprise Their Roles In This Comedy Cop Sequel.
"You two sons-a-bitches are going to college," we hear Ice Cube bark at Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill in the trailer before we see montages of the typical movie-ready university scenes: heavy drinking in the hallways, beer pong, sex, shared bathroom dilemmas and deadline library clashes - all with a sludgy hip-hop soundtrack. In no great leap of imagination, the former classmates have immersed themselves in varsity life.
