Exclusive: Channing Tatum talks DEAR JOHN and THE EAGLE OF THE NINTH on the Red Carpet

     August 7, 2009

Channing Tatum G.I. Joe premiere.jpg

As you may have already noticed by the abundance of video interviews on Collider, last night I covered a special “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra” screening at Mann’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood. While there, I landed tons of video interviews with the cast and producers of the movie. Since I already talked to Channing Tatum about “G.I. Joe” on more than one occasion, I decided to use my time to talk about other projects. So after the jump you can hear Channing talk about his next film “Dear John” and the project he’s about to start…a Roman Empire film called “The Eagle of the Ninth”. If you haven’t heard about that one yet, it’s going to be directed by Kevin Macdonald (“The Last King of Scotland”, “State of Play”). What I’m trying to say is…it’s a film you should be excited for. Watch the interview after the jump:

Channing Tatum

  • How important is it for him to pick other projects besides action
  • DEAR JOHN talk – his next film
  • Rachel Nichols shows up
  • THE EAGLE OF THE NINTH talk – it’s a Roman Empire film. Kevin Macdonald is directing.
  • Says it takes place in 122 A.D. and talks about his character
