Channing Tatum is set to star in Disney’s long-gestating musical comedy Bob the Musical, Collider has learned.
Allan Loeb (Rock of Ages) wrote a draft of the script, which follows a regular guy who can suddenly hear the inner songs of everyone’s heart after suffering a blow to the head. His reality instantly becomes a musical, much to his dismay.
Bob the Musical has been in development since 2004 and over the past decade, several filmmakers have circled the project including Phil Lord and Chris Miller and Hairspray’s Adam Shankman. Tripp Vinson and Beau Flynn are producing Bob the Musical with Chris Bender of Good Fear, alongside Tatum and his company, Free Association, and partners Reid Carolin and Peter Kiernan.
Tatum hasn’t appeared in a live-action movie since the Kingsman sequel in 2017, having lent his voice to the animated movies Smallfoot and The Lego Movie 2 in recent years. He also produced Netflix’s addiction drama 6 Balloons starring Dave Franco and Abbi Jacobson.
