Relativity inks deal with Channing Tatum

Actor's shingle signs production deal with company

Relativity Media has inked a production deal with Channing Tatum’s fledgling unnamed shingle, which Tatum runs with Reid Carolin.

The two-year pact is non-exclusive.

Tatum and Relativity have a close working relationship, having made three films together–“Dear John,” “Fighting” and Steven Soderbergh’s upcoming pic “Hawyire.”

Relativity said the producing deal will allow it to partner on projects with Tatum and Carolin.

“Channing is an immensely talented actor and incredibly enthusiastic about finding materials to produce with Reid. We look forward to working with the two of them over the coming years,” Relativity prexy of worldwide production Tucker Tooley said.

“Dear John,” produced and financed by Relativity, is the highest-grossing Screen Gems of all time, earning north of $80 million domestically.

The first project from Tatum and Carolin’s company, “Ten Year,” is not part of the Relativity deal. Writer/director Jamie Lindin begins lensing that pic this month, with Tatum starring opposite Jenna Dewan Tatum, Kate Mara, Brian Geraghty, Chris Pratt and Justin Long.

Tatum will next be in theaters with Universal’s “The Dilemma,” followed by Focus Features’ “The Eagle.” Other projects on tap include “Son of No One,” which will preem at Sundance and also stars Al Pacino and Katie Holmes.

Carolin’s credits include “Stop-Loss,” which he developed and associate produced.

Jenna Dewan Tatum, Channing Tatum’s wife, will be a development partner in the new production shingle.
