The cast of Quentin Tarantino's 'The Hateful Eight' is shaping up to be one of the most exciting ensemble casts in quite some time, and now it's looking to add one of the biggest leading men to the roster: Channing Tatum is being eyed for a leading role in Tarantino's upcoming western, and word is that the role is pretty major.

We've known for some time that Channing Tatum has been confirmed to appear as Gambit in an upcoming 'X-Men' spinoff film, although how that film will (eventually?) connect to the current films is unclear. Today brings some further motion, as the film is most definitely moving forward, picking up screenwriter Josh Zetumer, who penned the 'RoboCop' remake. We've also learned some potentially good news: Zetumer's script will be based on a treatment by original 'X-Men' comics writer and Gambit co-creator Chris Claremont.
A new film from filmmaking brothers Joel and Ethan Coen is always highly-anticipated, but it turns out we're just going to have to wait a little longer for their latest effort. The star-studded 'Hail, Caesar!' which reunites the directors with George Clooney and Tilda Swinton, has been officially given a 2016 release date, and we have a feeling this one will be well-worth the wait.
It may take a little more convincing to get Channing Tatum on board with this whole '23 Jump Street' idea. The end credits for '22 Jump Street' cleverly satirized Hollywood's obsession with milking franchises to the bitter end, seemingly a message from the writers and directors that they wouldn't be back for a third round -- that was, until the recent announcement that Sony is making a third film with directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller producing. But will Tatum be back for more?
As director Bennett Miller said, the whole premise behind 'Foxcatcher' -- that of a disturbed millionaire coaching a team of Olympic wrestling hopefuls at his home without knowing a thing about the sport -- was "funny...until it's not, and then it's not funny at all." Following the film's NYFF debut, a new 'Foxcatcher' trailer premiered online to show off the powerhouse performances from Steve Carell, Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo, and provide a full-length look at this early Oscar contender.
"It’s the kind of thing that’s funny until it’s not, and then it’s not funny at all," 'Foxcatcher' director Bennett Miller told reporters at New York Film Festival of his latest film. The man behind 'Capote' and 'Moneyball' tackled the story of John du Pont, the disturbed successor of the du Pont family fortune who became obsessed with two Olympic wrestling brothers and tragically shot one to death on the grounds of his estate. 'Foxcatcher' was pegged early on as a prospective Oscar contender, and the director and cast members Channing Tatum, Steve Carell, Mark Ruffalo, Sienna Miller, Anthony Michael Hall and Vanessa Redgrave went a bit more in-depth on its creation.
'Magic Mike 2' is in full swing! With the official cast firmed up, and Channing Tatum and his boys returning for another round of twerking and gyration, production on the sequel has commenced in Savannah, Georgia, and we've got the first set photos for your enjoyment. Check out Tatum as he starts his own business.
Remember how Elizabeth Banks had such a great time during the 2012 MTV Movie Awards, accepting one of those golden popcorn trophies from the 'Magic Mike' hunks? Now she's getting even more love from Channing Tatum and his crew with a role in 'Magic Mike 2,' which officially revealed the full cast roster and plot details.
Matthew McConaughey may not be back for more super-sized 'Magic Mike 2' action, as the head honcho from the original feature won't be returning for whatever delights its sequel holds for us, but the film is lining up a very, ahem, eclectic cast so far.
'22 Jump Street' gave us one of the most hilarious end credits sequences in comedy history, and one that seemed to signal to audiences that Phil Lord and Chris Miller were done with making 'Jump Street' movies, as it delivered concepts for about 20 fake sequels. But not so fast: '22 Jump Street' writer Rodney Rothman has been hired to return for '23 Jump Street,' so it seems like Ice Cube's threat to send our favorite undercover cops to medical school might not be out of the question.
