Channing Tatum is all set to appear in the adaption of New York Times bestseller, “Two Kisses for Maddy: A Memoir of Loss and Love.” Read on for more details.
The “21 Jump Street” actor is heading towards making an American drama and according to Tracking Board, the actor will also produce the film for Sony Pictures under his production company, Free Association with his professional partner Peter Kiernan.
“Two Kisses for Maddy,” which is a father-daughter drama, is based on Matthew Logelin’s memoir “Two Kisses for Maddy: A Memoir of Loss and Love.” It follows the “story of a high school sweetheart, their marriage and the death of the wife from pulmonary embolism after 27 hours of giving birth to their daughter.” The story focuses on Matthew’s experience of raising his daughter as a single parent.
Marta Kaufman and Denise DiNovi first showed their interest as executive producers in 2012 for “Two Kisses for Maddy” but apparently it didn’t work out. The film is penned by Dana Stevens who is famous for writing, “Safe Haven,” “For Love of the Game,” and “City of Angels.”
Apart from Free Associations and Sony Pictures, Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey will also co-produce the film under Temple Hill Entertainment. Tatum will be next in Coen Brother’s most anticipated Hollywood satire “Hail! Caesar” and in “Magic Mike XXL.”
The 35-year-old actor is a father of a 2-years-old Everly and we think that “Two Kisses for Maddy” will be a very sentimental film as the actor will be able to picture himself as Matthew Logelin.
There is no official date of the film yet but after “Foxcatcher,” and “Jupiter Ascending,” it will be a nice to watch Channing Tatum in such an emotional role.
