Channing Tatum is going to be a director! Or, at least, a co-director. He'll produce and direct a screen adaptation of the YA novel Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock alongside Reid Carolin, who's produced most of Tatum's recent movies. The book's about a high schooler who plans a murder-suicide; Tatum is set to play a teacher. If this goes well, we hear Tatum will then try his hand at cinematography in Magic Hour Mike.
