I recently reported that Channing Tatum will be starring in the crime thriller ‘Son of No One‘ (set to be released in 2011), his latest drama with writer/director Dito Montiel, and now I have a few more details on the who, what, when, and where for the film production.
The estimated $20 million actioneer is in the pre-production phase and principal photography (aka filming) is currently scheduled to start on February 2, 2010 (right around the time Chan will be wrapping up promotions for his movie ‘Dear John‘).
In addition to filming on location in New York City (which I totally pegged as a potential location in my last post about the film), the production will reportedly be making some stops in Detroit, Michigan and Toronto, Ontario in Canada.
It’s an understatement to say that Dito Montiel is drawn to New York City much like ducks are drawn to water. After filming both ‘A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints’ and ‘Fighting‘ in New York, it’s clear that the city he grew up in seems to be his favorite directorial playground. From the South Bronx to Queens to Canal Street and more, fans can check out the beauty that is New York through Dito’s eyes in the CTU Photo Gallery.
‘Son of No One‘ is about a young cop named Jonathan White (played Channing Tatum) who is assigned to a precinct in the working class neighborhood where he grew up, and an old secret threatens to destroy his life and his family.
The cast is definitely shaping up for this one…Chan will be joined by his ‘Fighting‘ co-star and Oscar nominee Terrence Howard (Vinny), James Gandolfini (Sergeant Mathers) and the incomparable Robert De Niro (Detective Stanford).
Sadly, it’ll be a while before we can see Chan in this new film, but fans in the UK can watch him in his 2008 drama ‘Stop-Loss‘ on Sky Screen 2 at 5:25 PM on November 20th and Sky Movies Drama at 11:00 PM on December 10th. Fans in the US can also watch Chan’s movie ‘Havoc’ on IFC at 7:00 PM Central on November 21st and 1:30 AM Central on November 22nd.
