NEWS FLASH: Channing Tatum and Terrence Howard's 'Fighting' to Start Filming Next Week

Although the actor himself stated it in an interview recently, Rogue Pictures officially announced on Friday that Oscar-nominated actor Terrence Howard has signed to star opposite Channing Tatum in Dito Montiel's new underground street fighting action drama.

An actor who recently attended the open casting in New York said that the previously untitled film is called 'Fighting' (for now at least) and Rogue Pictures seems to also be confirming that fact.

Although I think that Channing may have already started training for the film, it is supposed to begin shooting next week in New York. In addition to directing the movie, 'A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints' director Dito Montiel also wrote the screenplay for 'Fighting'.

Howard received his Oscar nomination for his powerful performance in 'Hustle & Flow' and can currently be seen in the new movies 'The Hunting Party' and 'The Brave One,' both of which open nationwide this weekend.

Just in case you don't already know...In 'Fighting', Channing Tatum will play Sean Arthur, a New York counterfeit merchandise salesman (aka ticket scalper) whose life is changed after a chance encounter with veteran street-fighting coach, Harvey Boarden, played by Howard.

'Fighting' is set to have its theatrical release some time in 2008.
