Channing Tatum shot to fame with the dance film Step Up, became everyone’s heartthrob with romance film like Dear John and The Vow, went in to dominate the action comedy genera with the Jump Street franchise and now he is all set to try his hand with the family drama, Two Kisses For Maddy.
Two Kisses For Maddy is all about a father-daughter relationship and Channing Tatum has signed on to produce and possibly star in this tear jerker, that will be an adaptation from Matthew Logelin’s best selling 2011 memoir by the same name, Two Kisses for Maddy: A Memoir Of Loss And Love.
The story starts out focusing on Matthew Logelin’s marriage and the death of wife Liz, just twenty seven hours after giving birth to their daughter. It then chronicles the author’s experiences as he confronts his devastating grief and attempts to move forward and raise his daughter as a single parent.
The project was initially set up as a movie for television but that version did not go forward and now it seems that the story is getting another shot on the big screen.
Dana Stevens has already been hired to pen the screenplay for the film. He has earlier written romantic films like Safe Haven and City Of Angels, as well as sports dramas like For Love Of The Game.
it’s still premature to say if Channing Tatum will star in the film or no. However, this role would come at an appropriate time for him. The actor became a dad to daughter Everly in 2013 and his own paternal experiences would surely help him connect to Matthew Logelin’s highly emotional and tragic story in Two Kisses For Maddy.
Two Kisses For Maddy isn’t the only new project that Channing Tatum has in the works. Last month, the busy actor also signed on to star in the adaptation of Joe Haldeman’s classic sci-fi book The Forever War.
Audiences will have to stay tuned to see whether this talent hunk will prove as adept at family drama as he has been in other genres. No projected premiere date for Two Kisses For Maddy has been revealed yet.
This year, Channing Tatum will be seen in films like Jupiter Ascending and Magic Mike XXL.
