NEWS FLASH: New Release Dates and Cast Info for Channing Tatum's 'Dear John'

Channing Tatum and Amanda Seyfried in 'Dear John'

I have new release dates to share with you all for Channing Tatum's romantic drama 'Dear John'. Although I'm sure the list is going to grow over the next year, we now know when the film is going to hit the theaters in the US, Norway, and the Netherlands. Here are the new release dates that can also be found on the CTU Calendar:

  • United States: February 5, 2010

  • Netherlands: February 18, 2010

  • Norway: March 5, 2010

'Dear John' is adapted from the Nicholas Sparks novel Dear John, which follows the love story between an idealistic college student and enlisted American soldier. The film stars Channing Tatum as John Tyree, Amanda Seyfried as Savannah Lynn Curtis and has a strong supporting cast that includes Richard Jenkins, Henry Thomas, Scott Porter, Leslea Fisher, Keith Robinson, and Cullen Moss. 'Dear John' is also directed by two-time Oscar nominated director, Lasse Hallstrom.

A crew member who worked on the film was recently asked about the chemistry between the actors during filming. Here's what they had to say about Channing and his co-stars...

"Channing is very nice, playful with the film crew and seemed to me to be acting the part of John very well...Amanda is very sweet, sort of quiet and nice to everyone on the set. She worked pretty hard to get things right (for instance she took riding lessons just outside Charleston for the horse scenes). Henry is thoughtful, caring and was also very nice to everyone. He would go out of his way to spend time with visitors to the set and when he worked with the 6 year old with autism (Braeden, who played Alan), he was a natural and developed a great relationship on-camera that will be clear in the film. The only chemistry I saw was professional. The actors sometime joked around with each other but mostly it was work, work, work!"

The film wrapped production last December, but during the nine-week shoot around Charleston, South Carolina, locations such as Edisto Island, The Citadel, the North Charleston Air Force Base, Fort Moultrie, Botany Bay, private plantation homes, businesses and town parks provided unique backdrops for the movie and doubled for sites like Africa, Afghanistan and Germany.
