Channing Tatum can be seen starting today in theaters for Steven Soderbergh’s latest movie, Logan Lucky but he’s been incredibly busy for quite a bit of time now and is adding onto his list of projects. According to Deadline, Tatum will star in the crime drama, Bloodlines.
Based on the upcoming book by Melissa Del Bosque, Bloodlines: The True Story of a Drug Cartel, the FBI and the Battle for a Horse-Racing Dynasty, the movie will tell the story of a rookie FBI agent who works in Texas and stumbles upon a major money laundering operation which is run by a Mexican cartel. It sure sounds like an interesting project for Tatum and it’s also backed by an Oscar-nominated writer, Jonathan Herman (Straight Outta Compton) who will write the script. Here’s hoping they get a great director as well, one that can make a Sicario or Hell or High Water-type genre movie.
In addition to Logan Lucky, Tatum will appear in Kingsman: The Golden Circle which hits theaters on September 22nd. He also has the Splash remake, the R-rated comedy/musical Wingmen with Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Gambit in development going forward.
