Channing Tatum and Reid Carolin are set to co-direct the film adaptation of Matthew Quick’s YA novel FORGIVE ME, LEONARD PEACOCK!
The story follows a young, tormented teen on his 18th birthday as he meets with the only four people he considers friends, people who don’t know his plan to take drastic measures and end his own life shortly after they speak.
Though it is not confirmed, Tatum may also be playing one of Leonard’s four “friends”, a teacher who understands what it’s like to be singled out for being different.
FORGIVE ME, LEONARD PEACOCK author Matthew Quick is no stranger to Hollywood adaptations. His adult novel SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK was adapted in 2012 and became a major success. His upcoming novel LOVE MAY FAIL is already in works at Sony.
