It’s Friday, so we’re ready to take a load off and celebrate the thwarting of the repeal of the Affordable Care Act. And what better way to kick up our heels than to revel in the news that professional charmers Channing Tatum and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are going to combine their powers to put on what could possibly be the most personable musical ever? Variety reports the two affable actors, who last worked together on Stop-Loss, will star in a musical film that Gordon-Levitt will also direct. It won’t be much of a departure for Tatum, who recently starred in Hail, Caesar!, or Gordon-Levitt, who did all kinds of musical things for the now-defunct Pivot.
The film has a working title—Wingmen—and a plot that will center on two pilots (Tatum and Gordon-Levitt) who crash-land in Las Vegas, and presumably have to sing their way out of the desert or at a casino to earn their keep. The two delightful scamps will produce the musical along with Marc Platt and Adam Siegel. A writer hasn’t been announced yet, but production is still a ways off anyway, as Tatum is set to start filming Triple Frontier with Tom Hardy soon.
