Channing Tatum’s directorial debut Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock has gotten a writer!
Mike Vukadinovich will be writing the script for Channing Tatum’s upcoming YA adaptation, Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock. The movie is based off of Matthew Quick’s, who wrote Silver Linings Playbook young adult novel about a high school student who plans to kill himself and his former best friend with the P-38 Nazi pistol given to him by his grandfather.
Channing Tatum was originally planning for his directorial debut to be Magic Mike XXL, but decided that he should start with something unique first his first job rather than rather trying to follow the the footsteps of acclaimed director Steven Soderbergh.
I could look at how he uses the camera, how he sets up shots, how he makes his decisions, but at the end of the day, it’s really how he sees the world, and we’ll never be able to copy Soderbergh. No one can. Even if you tried to copy him, you can’t, because it’s always going to be a reflection of yourself.
No word yet on casting or when the film will be released.
