Despite the snarky title on this article, I’m a big fan of Channing Tatum. I think he’s a powerful actor, and I look forward to the time when he’s getting more serious roles. In the meantime, I’m happy to see him reteaming for a third go round with his A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints writer/director Dito Montiel on an adaptation of The Brotherhood of the Rose, which sounds quite Bournetastic.
I keep getting this book confused with The Name of the Rose, which was adapted into a Christian Slater/Sean Connery buddy monk movie; The Brotherhood of the Rose is about two orphans raised by an espionage agent to be assassins who find themselves targets when they get double crossed. The novel was written by First Blood author David Morrell, and was adapted into an NBC miniseries that starred none other than the great David Morse, way back in 1989.
Montiel, who also wrote and directed Tatum’s next film, Fighting, is writing and directing this one as well. The novel is one part of a loose trilogy, so it’s possible that Warner Bros is looking at this as their post-Bourne era thriller franchise.
Ladies, enjoy the picture of Channing Tatum holding a cock.
