Channing Tatum to Play an Undercover Cop


New Line Cinema is fast-tracking an untitled action film starring Channing Tatum (Step Up) as an undercover cop, preemptively snapping up a pitch by T. J. Scott and Kevin Lund and setting it up with Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey.

Variety says the story centers on a New York City cop who must infiltrate the underground world of free running, known as Parkour, to bust a seemingly unstoppable gang of bank robbers.

Scott and Lund, who previously set up a Vivaldi biopic at Imagine, will write the screenplay.
