Channing Tatum eyes Fifty Shades role
Thu, 12 Jul 2012 8:56a.m.
Channing Tatum wants to star in the big screen adaptation of raunchy bestseller Fifty Shades Of Grey - but only if his wife Jenna Dewan allowed it.
The actor has sent female moviegoers into a frenzy playing a stripper in Magic Mike, and now he is eyeing another saucy part playing business magnate Christian Grey in the upcoming movie version of E.L. James' erotic novel.
However, Tatum says Dewan would only let him accept the role if she can play the book's heroine Anastasia Steele.
When asked whether he would be open to playing Christian, he tells Britain's Glamour Magazine, "Yes... (But) I'd only be allowed if my wife was Ana. She's read the books so I don't think she'd be impressed if she couldn't be Ana!"
Tatum is also revving up for a new role as daredevil stuntman Evel Knievel.
The Vow star is in talks to play the famed motorcyclist in a new movie based on Stuart Barker's 2008 book Life of Evel, and he has also been lined up to produce the project, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Knievel, who died in 2007 aged 69, was known for his daring bike jumps and for breaking 433 bones during his career.
The stuntman was previously played on the big screen by George Hamilton in 1971 film Evel Knievel, while Knievel played himself in 1977 movie Viva Knievel!
