CHANNING TATUM IN "JUPITER ASCENDING" SF EPIC BY "MATRIX" HELMERS! READY FOR CHANNING TATUM, ALEX PETTYFER, MATT BOMER, JOE MANGANIELLO STRIPPING IN "MAGIC MIKE"? "BUTTON MAN" MOVIE ADAPTATION?

 I've reported last winter that beside finishing their sf epic CLOUD ATLAS, famous MATRIX authors Andy and Lana  Wachowski are preparing JUPITER ASCENDING , another sf epic. I've also told you back then that Channing Tatum was offered the lead role and now "MovieWeb" says that Channing has confirmed the gig. The film follows a poor Russian immigrant, whose genetic makeup is identical to the Queen of the Universe. The Queen dispatches a bounty hunter (Channing Tatum) to eliminate this potential threat to her role, but the assassin ends up falling for his target. The film, scheduled for 2014. could possibly have Mila Kunis in the lead female role if the rumours prove to be true. Before that Mila has to finish OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL in which she plays a witch.
HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
I swear I've never heard of him, but it seems we shall get a movie adaptation of the comic book hero BUTTON MAN. "Deadline" reports that DreamWorks
is negotiating with director Nicolas Winding Refn (DRIVE, BRONSON) to helm the pic. The plot sounds identical to Gerard Butler's GAMER: it follows Harry Exton, a hit-man who takes part in a game organized by a group of millionaires. The game pits trained killers against each other in a fight to the death, while the rich bet on them. The main character decides to opt of of the competition and he finds that the only way out is to kill them all. Refn was also mentioned as the possible helmer of the famous 70's classic LOGAN'S RUN sf remake.

READY FOR MAGIC MIKE?
Speaking of Channing Tatum, are my ladies and gay readers ready for the premiere of MAGIC MIKE this June 29th? It's very close, I bet
you can already feel the heat :) The film is directed by Steven Soderbergh and stars Channing Tatum (Dear John, Step Up) in a story inspired by his real life especially by his early stripping days. The 
film follows Mike (Tatum) as he takes a young dancer called The Kid (Alex Pettyfer) under his wing and schools him in the fine arts of
partying, picking up women, and making easy money. Beside Channing and Pettyfer, other Hollywood hunks which will be taking their clothes
off in the film include Joe Manganiello, Matthew McConaughey, Adam Rodriguez, Matthew Bomer... and there's also Olivia Munn for the boys.

  1. Holy hot men Dez!!! WAWZA! I can't pick a favorite, they're all so yummy. But I think Channing is my pick here. He just has everything, good acting, super hot, kind of sweet and cute, very funny. That photo of him, doesn't even seem like him.

    1. You did expect that the choice would be impossible :) Channing is becoming so lucrative and popular that even GI JOE sequel has been postponed for next year instead of this summer so that they could reshoot more scenes with him. He was originally meant to die early in the film, but now he won't :)

  2. Magic Mike would be perfect for me if I was gay. I can picture it being a huge hit with all the ladies and gay gentlemen. I'm not homophobic though, I have to say Matthew McConaughey has always been a handsome guy and quite the badass.

    1. it's nice to hear that you're not homophobic, Matt, because here at HOLLYWOOD SPY we do not discriminate and we give eye candy both to our ladies, gays and boys :)
      MAGIC MIKE does also have a storyline about how he succeeded and how he had his designing projects, so it's not just about stripping.

    I'm not sure about JUPITER ASCENDING. The premise sounds a bit dodgey.

  15. Magic Mike was one of the trailers that played at the movie I went to Saturday and my friend kept elbowing me saying, "We're gonna come back and see this one, right? Right? Right?" Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey they are just dead sexy!! Plot line? Who needs it?? Oh, sorry, I'm objectifying the eye candy =PPPP I'm sure it's very well written too. lol
