Channing Tatum may be heading out west.
Deadline is reporting that the Magic Mike star is eyeing an unspecified role in Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming western The Hateful Eight. If he and Tarantino reach a consensus about his appearance in the project, Channing would join Samuel L Jackson, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern, Kurt Russell and Tim Roth when filming begins early next year.
Famously, this latest film from the Pulp fiction writer/director almost never came to pass after he stated he would shelve the project following a leak of his first draft screenplay last January. He later changed his mind after a staged reading of a revised draft.
When production starts, Tarantino will be shooting on 65mm film with an eye towards having the largest 70mm release in over 20 years.
