NEWS FLASH: Channing Tatum's 'Dear John' to Film in South Carolina

Channing Tatum in Nathaniel Goldberg Photo Shoot for GQ Magazine (July 2006 Issue) (High Quality HQ)It all started last year with the announcement that Channing Tatum was cast in the lead role and for a while, that's all we knew about his romantic drama 'Dear John'. For most fans, that was enough to get us hooked, but we all know that you need more than just one actor to make a movie (even if it's Channing Tatum).

Recently, they announced a director (Lasse Hallstrom). Then, they announced the casting directors (Joanna Colbert and Richard Mento).

Now, thanks to Fabulous Channing Tatum Fan Brandi, I can let you all know exactly where they will be filming this fall. OK maybe not exactly, but close enough...

The South Carolina Department of Commerce just announced last Wednesday that 'Dear John' is one of two new films that has been approved to begin filming in South Carolina in 2008.

Channing Tatum in Dear John by Nicholas Sparks'Dear John' is based on the book written by Nicholas Sparks, and is a New Line studios production with Production Designer Sarah Knowles. New Line studios and Knowles both worked on 'The Notebook,' which was filmed in South Carolina in 2003.

The film will be shot in multiple locations along the South Carolina coast. Last I heard, they are supposed to start filming in mid-September, but the production company is still finalizing the exact schedule.

'Dear John' is set to hit theaters some time in 2009. For those who don't know, it is a story of a soldier who falls in love with a conservative college girl who he plans to marry, but time and distance take their toll on the fledging relationship.

One of many things we don't know about this film yet is who is going to play the female lead. If you were the casting directors, who would be you choose (other than yourself) ;-) to play Channing's love interest? Fans can leave a comment on this post to share your choice(s).

Stay tuned to Channing Tatum Unwrapped, and (as always) I'll keep you posted on any new developments with the film.

I don't Jenna would be the best choice but that's my opinion. To voyeur for me. My choices would be Emily Blunt (beautiful), Sophia Bush (she looks like a Savannah), or Megalyn Echikunwoke (far fetched but I don't care).
