We all know him from his movies “21 Jump Street,” and of course, “Magic Mike XXL,” but he’s ready to take on more projects and this time, it’s a little bit different. Channing Tatum already did “Small Foot,” which is another movie where he could flex his comedic muscles, and he’s planning to flex some more of that in a Disney musical comedy which he will both be starring in and producing.
According to a report by entertainment news website the Hollywood Reporter, Tatum will be producing “Bob the Musical” with Walt Disney Studios and through his production banner, Free Association.
There are still no directors for the project yet, although the movie has actually been in Disney’s docket since 2004 and “has seen many iterations come, come close, and ultimately go." Even though there is currently no one helming this project yet, some directors have already caught the eye of Disney and Tatum.
Mark Waters, Adam Shankman, Phil Lord, Chris Miller, and Michael Hazanavicius have been attached to the project as of late, and people like Michael Chabon, Alan Loeb, Mike Bender, John August, and Lowell Ganz have also worked on the script over the years.
For those curious about this whole project as early as now, it will be about Bob, a “regular guy who, after a blow to the head, suddenly can hear the inner songs in everyone’s heart as his reality is instantly turned into a musical, much to his dismay.”
Right off the bat, the plot seems to be quite enjoyable.
Meanwhile, for those who are excited about Tatum producing the film, you may want to check out “Dog,” another film that Tatum is set to tackle after this musical comedy. “Dog,” which is a canine comedy, will also be guided through Tatum’s writing (since he will be co-writing it), and will be co-directed by Reid Carolin, one of Tatum’s business partners.
