Channing Tatum, the hot young thing who caught everyone’s attention for his role as the bad-boy dancer in Disney’s Step Up, is attached to a pitch that would see him play a fish-out-of-water cop in South Korea. Compelling? The studios seem to think so. The pitch from screenwriter Doug Jung (Confidence) has been making the rounds throughout Hollywood with a number of studios interested. And while it would become a rare U.S. feature to shoot in South Korea, Hollywood is much more interested in Tatum than in the exotic locale of the movie. We should know next week if and where it lands.
