Channing Tatum Organizes TEN YEAR Reunion; Invites Chris Pine, Anna Faris, Chris Pratt, Scott Porter

Out to prove he’s more than just an immensely pretty face, Channing Tatum hopes to make it as a producer as well.  We heard about his first effort, the thriller The Contortionist’s Handbook, earlier this month.  Project number two is an ensemble drama entitled Ten Year, which reunites a group of friends a decade after their high school graduation.  Naturally, Tatum intends to star in addition to his producerial duties, shared with producing partner Reid Carolin (Stop-Loss) as well as Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey (Eclipse).

According to THR, Tatum hired his Dear John scribe Jamie Linden to write and direct, with a few of Tatum’s friends in mind for the ensemble.  There’s a role set aside for wife Jenna Dewan (Step Up), and the wishlist includes Chris Pine (Star Trek), Anna Faris (Observe and Report), Chris Pratt (Parks and Recreation), and Scott Porter (Friday Night Lights).  There are no deals in place yet, but if Tatum and Co. can land that cast, I’m sold.  I actually tend to respect Tatum more than most males in my age bracket, and like the conceit enough that I imagine I could get behind even a Pine-less Ten Year.  The filmmakers hope to assemble financing and cast in time for a November shoot.
