Channing Tatum Wants In On Awesome Film Franchise Reboot
This is probably the best thing to come out of the Sony email hack. Channing Tatum is keen to star in a Ghostbusters remake.
An email from Channing to Amy Pascal, revealed by The Daily Beast, read:
“Let us show the world The DarkSide and let us fight it with all the glory and epicness of a HUGE BATMAN BEGINS MOVIE. I know we can make this a huge franchise. Fun adventure craziness. COME OONNNN!!!” the email that is allegedly from Channing read.
Another email reveals that Channing was also keen for Chris Pratt to be involved. The version Channing was pitching was described as “simultaneously super scary while also super funny.” Something both Channing and Chris are brilliant at.
A separate chain of emails allegedly between Amy Pascall and Hannah Minghella supports the pitch and suggests that the film could exist alongside the already planned all-female one.
“Apparently the Russos are very close to Paul and Joe suggested Paul could be attached to direct both,” Hannah’s email allegedly reads. “Personally I think it’s possible for the female version to co-exist with this other version so maybe they’re not mutually exclusive.”
Another leak also suggested that Peter Dinklage is being lined up for the role of the bad guy in the all-female production.
All this talk of Ghostbusters remakes is getting us pretty excited.
