Tatum, Channing: Hollywood’s Hottest Star?

Channing Tatum is on a roll.

The star of “22 Jump Street,” is in negotiations to join the cast of Joel and Ethan Coen’s “Hail Caesar!”

The story follows a Hollywood fixer in the 1950s who is working to keep a studio’s stars in line.

He joins George Clooney and Josh Brolin. The Coen brothers are writing and directing the picture.  Universal will distribute with the Coens producing, along with Eric Fellner and Tim Bevan for Working Title Films.

Tatum has already seen great success working with Phil Lord and Chris Miller on “21 Jump Street” and “22 Jump Street” and also recently worked with the Wachowski siblings on “Jupiter Ascending,” which bows in February 2015.  He can be seen next in Sony Classics’ Oscar contender, “Foxcatcher,” in November.
