NEWS FLASH: Casting Directors Chosen for Channing Tatum's 'Dear John'

We all happily learned last year that Channing Tatum was going to play the title role in the 2009 romantic drama 'Dear John', which is adapted from a popular Nicholas Sparks book by the same name.

In May 2008, we also found out that accomplished director Lasse Hallström was chosen to helm the film.

The movie is currently in the pre-production phase, and as we get closer to the planned mid-September start of filming, more and more details are going come out about the production.

The biggest question that most fans have is who is going to play the female lead of Savannah opposite Channing's John. We don't have that answer yet, but we are one step closer to finding out who will play the part.

I found an article today that says the production team has now chosen the casting directors for the film. Joanna Colbert and Richard Mento who coincidentally also casted Channing Tatum's 'Step Up and 'Step Up 2: The Streets', are now attached to cast 'Dear John', a drama about a young soldier (John) who falls in love with a quiet college student (Savannah) while home on leave.

Stay tuned to Channing Tatum Unwrapped, and I'll keep you posted on any new developments with the film's casting.
