Hollywood star Channing Tatum is set to reunite with 21 Jump Street makers Phil Lord and Chris Miller for a new monster movie.
Described as a "modern-day, tongue-in-cheek thriller" that is inspired by Universal's classic monster features, the film will feature Tatum in the lead role, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The film's screenplay will be penned by Wes Tooke, writer of Colony and Midway, based on an idea from Magic Mike and Magic Mike XXL screenwriter Reid Carolin.
Lord and Miller will produce the film along with Aditya Sood for their Lord Miller production banner, which has a first-look deal with the studio. Tatum, Carolin, and Peter Kiernan will produce through their Free Association banner.
Tatum is currently busy with his directorial debut, Dog, which he is headlining and co-directing with Carolin.
