Sony Seduces 'Step Up,' 'Stomp' Stars
Channing Tatum and Columbus Short will join forces
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Columbia Pictures and Neal Moritz's Original Films shingle will be the home for the "Step Up" and "Stomp the Yard" stars to collaborate.
David Elliot and Paul Lovett ("Four Brothers") are writing the script, though the trade paper offers little by way of plot detail.
Tatum has recently been attached to a slew of studio projects, so many that it's hard to tell what films are actually coming up next on his slate. Sure to next be seen in "Battle in Seattle" and "Stop Loss," the actor's potential upcoming films include the Nicholas Sparks adaptation "Dear John," an untitled but self-explanatory parkour-themed action project and a recently announced fighting film to reteam the actor with his "Guide to Recognizing Your Saints" director Dito Montiel.
Short, whose pre-"Stomp" credits included "Accepted" and "Save the Last Dance 2," will next be seen in "This Christmas" and the graphic novel adaptation "Whiteout."
