Channing Tatum's newest project has a cheeky title: EW reports that the Magic Mike star's production company is "getting behind" the buddy-cop TV series Iron Fisting. The show — which is not to be confused with the upcoming Marvel series Iron Fist — purports to be an ’80s crime drama from Romania, in which two mismatched detectives attempt to protect Nicolae Ceaușescu's socialist paradise from the evils of capitalism. Iron Fisting is the brainchild of Animal Practice's Brian Gatewood and Alex Tanaka, with Documentary Now!'s Rhys Thomas set to direct, and A24 financing. Sounds like, in terms of development, this project is at third base.
