NEWS FLASH: Channing Tatum to Star in 'Poor Things' with Lindsay Lohan & Rosario Dawson

Looks like we got our wish...we are going to see a ton of Channing Tatum on the big screen in the coming years.

He has inked yet another deal and this time he will be starring with tabloid target Lindsay Lohan (recently seen in 'Georgia Rule' and a poorly lit club bathroom :-D) and the adorable Rosario Dawson (recently seen in 'A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints').

All three of them will be starring in the grandma gang comedy 'Poor Things,' which also stars acting legends Shirley MacLaine and Olympia Dukakis.

Ash Baron Cohen, cousin of Sacha Baron Cohen (aka Borat), will be directing the film that is scheduled to start shooting this Wednesday in Los Angeles (heads up to Channing fans in LA).

Trent Haaga's script was inspired by real news events and crime scandals surrounding recent arrests and convictions of elderly women for various "grandma gang" exploits, which have included scams and cons involving drug sales, insurance fraud and murder. It seems that the con artists pick up two guys, take out insurance policies on them, then run them down with their cars. The two women are currently on trial as we speak.

Not sure what part Channing is playing, but the movie definitely sounds interesting. In case you are keeping count...Channing has two movies coming out this year (Stop-Loss, Battle in Seattle), three movies in 2008 (Poor Things, Push, The Stanford Prison Experiment), and two movies planned for 2009 (Parkour, Dear John). This kids dance card is full! Yeaaaaa!! :-D

Huge congrats to Channing!!!
