‘Saints’ team reunite for fight film

Tatum, Montiel to work on Rogue feature

Channing Tatum and Dito Montiel, star and director, respectively, of “A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints,” will reteam on a feature about underground street fighting for Rogue.

Kevin Misher will produce the as-yet-untitled film through his Misher Films.

Tatum will play a young man scraping a living scalping tickets in Gotham who becomes involved in the underground sport after a chance encounter with a street-fighting coach.

Montiel has written the latest draft of the screenplay, with shooting skedded to begin in Gotham in September.

Summit Entertainment has a rival street-fighting pic lensing this summer. “Get Some” stars Sean Faris as a rebellious teen coerced into an underground fight club. Movie is the first Summit greenlit since it revamped earlier this year (Daily Variety, May 24).

Tatum also starred in “Step Up” and will appear in the upcoming “Stop Loss.”

“A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints” was Montiel’s first feature and was based on his autobiography. It picked up several kudos at the Sundance and Venice film fests.

Misher is currently in post-production on Christian Alvart’s “Case 39.” Previous producing credits include “The Interpreter” and “The Rundown.”
