AMCi: Channing Tatum To Co-Direct A YA Novel Adaptation

By Alicia Malone November 24, 2014

Channing Tatum and his producing/writing partner Reid Carolin are attached to co-direct an adaptation of “Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock”, a Young Adult novel by “Silver Linings Playbook” author Matthew Quick.

Channing is also considering starring in the film, which will be about a troubled student who plans a murder-suicide, and a courageous teacher who tries to stop him.

Tatum is on a roll right now, with strong reviews for his performance in “Foxcatcher”, having just wrapped his starring role in “Magic Mike XXL” (which he also co-wrote), attached to star in Fox’s X-Men spinoff “Gambit”, plus upcoming parts in the Coens’ “Hail, Caesar!” and Quentin Tarantino’s “The Hateful Eight”. He will next be seen in the Wachowskis’ delayed “Jupiter Ascending” on February 6.
