Channing Tatum Will Star in 'Untitled Stanford Prison Experiment Project' with Ryan Phillippe

I just learned that Channing Tatum can add yet another role to his list of projects in development. Variety says that he has been slated to star in Christopher McQuarrie's upcoming feature project "The Stanford Prison Experiment."

The movie is based on the true story of Dr. Philip Zimbardo's ground-breaking study of human behavior at Stanford U. in 1971. Student volunteers were assigned roles as guards and prisoners in a mock prison, but the relationship between them degenerated so rapidly into abuse that Zimbardo had to abandon the experiment halfway through.

The film is supposed to start shooting in this October and will shoot on the Stanford campus in Palo Alto, California, and in Regina, Canada.

The movie, co-written by McQuarrie and Tim Talbott, will star Kieran Culkin, Paul Dano, Jesse Eisenberg, Charlie Hunnam, Ben McKenzie, Ryan Phillippe and Channing Tatum and is set to be released in 2008.

Congrats, Channing!

Have you heard anything about this movie for Channing or anyone else who rumored?

You're very welcome! Glad you like the site!

I did ask about this one and I was told that Chan is interested in doing the project as long as his schedule permits. Once he knows he can do it for sure, he will no longer be "rumored" on the project. It's probably the same scenario for the other "rumored" actors.
