Channing Tatum, the popular American actor known for his roles in ‘Logan Lucky’, ‘Magic Mike’ and his most recent work in MGM Studio’s ‘Dog’ once contemplated quitting acting as he felt burdened by his existential thoughts. The thought of moving out of the business of acting came to him in 2018, around the time of his divorce from Jenna Dewan (with whom he shares custody of their eight-year-old daughter Everly), as reported by ‘Variety’.
In the interview with ‘Variety’, Tatum recalled asking himself: “Do I want to act anymore? Was I going to direct? Do I want to be in the industry anymore? I got lucky. I won a creative lottery ticket. I made a little bit of money, so I could take a step back and figure out what life is.”
The thought put Channing Tatum on the path of other artistic pursuits, including publishing a children’s book, ‘The One and Only Sparkella’. He said: “I really took time off. I sculpted. I took pictures. I wrote my own stuff, not like a script or anything. Just creating on different levels. I wanted to take a breather.”
During the period, Channing Tatum put his energy into the development of movies and TV shows at Free Association, which he had launched in 2014 with Carolin and Peter Kiernan, his former manager.
Some of the projects that they’ve been working on are currently under production ‘Spaceman’, with Adam Sandler, whose rights have been secured by Netflix, and ‘Step Up: Highwater’, the Starz TV series.
Channing Tatum will also produce and star in the thriller ‘Pussy Island’, which will be his girlfriend Zoe Kravitz’s directorial debut. Learning from his hustle on ‘Dog’, he advised his love interest not to take an acting role in it too.
