Channing Tatum has revealed that he is very wise in how he goes about selecting his movie roles, as he aims to learn from those who are involved with the movies that he choose to be a part of. Channing also admitted that he wants to be producing all of his own movies and that he hopes to eventually make the step up and begin directing his own films.
Tatum explained, "You gotta do the Dear Johns. You gotta do The Vow. I'm conscious about why I did those parts, those movies. I wanted to learn from Rachel McAdams on The Vow. I wanted to learn from Lasse Hallstrom on Dear John, he did The Cider House Rules and What's Eating Gilbert Grape. I didn't go to acting school, so my knowledge of story, filmmaking, and character comes from just being on set and doing it. I know I'm not the best actor, but I hope my characters are getting better."
He added, "I really don't want to be in any more movies that I don't produce. Unless it's with one of the 10 directors that I really want to work with, I don't have any interest in not being on the ground floor of creating it. But what I really want to do is direct." You can see Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams in The Vow, which is set to be released in both the US and the UK on February 10.
