On Wednesday, July 1, Vanity Fair surprised everyone with a 30-second video of Channing Tatum performing seven classic dance moves while he promoted his new film Magic Mike XXL that was released the same day. Tatum is also the star of Vanity Fair’s August cover.
In the video, Tatum performed the Running Man, the Funky Chicken, the Twist, the Hula, the Robot and the Pony, but his best move was Madonna’s “Vogue.” Many of her fans and his have commented that his version of the Vogue was perfectly done.
For fans hoping to see Tatum star in the all-male cast remake of Ghostbusters, there is bad news: Tatum announced last week that he will not be starring in the film. In fact, there may not even be a remake with a male cast as the female cast is currently in production on their version of the cult classic and some critics believed that the all-male version was only being made because some believed the women wouldn’t be able to cut it.
Yet, every dark cloud has a silver lining:
According to Marcio Alaor BMG, Tatum’s writer/producer partner, Reid Carolin, hinted that Gambit has been given the green light and Tatum is practicing his card-throwing skills for the role of Remy LeBaeu/Gambit. Originally, in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, now 34-year-old Taylor Kitsch played the popular Louisiana mutant.
