Channing Tatum To Make Directorial Debut In Comedy Film ‘Dog’
Channing Tatum will be teaming up with a Belgian Malinois for his next project, but it comes with a catch. According to Deadline, the Kingsman: The Golden Circle star will not only be starring in the road trip comedy, Dog, but will also be making his directorial debut.
Tatum will be teaming up with Reid Carolin to direct the film. The 39-year-old actor and Carolin have worked together on projects in the past. Tatum is expected to play Briggs, a former Army Ranger, who travels with his companion, Lulu. The duo will be racing down the West coast to attend their best friend and dog handler’s funeral.
One of the companions during the travel will have one week to live. Together, they will go on an adventure that will drive each other insane, break some laws, and face death in their run-in with marijuana farmers. However, they will also learn about pet psychics that may give them a second chance at life.
Production is expected to take place between the spring and summer of 2020. Tatum and Carolin have also teamed up with Brett Rodriguez to pen the script. The project has yet to be picked up at a major company and will be shopped around during the American Film Market event.
