After a quick trip to New Orleans to visit hubby Channing Tatum for his birthday on the set of ‘21 Jump Street‘, Jenna Dewan-Tatum got back to work and tweeted a gorgeous sneak peek of today’s photo shoot with celebrity photographer Davis Factor.
The starlet has two films that will be premiering at the 2011 NEWPORT BEACH Film Festival over the next week, so fans will be able to check out her indie romantic comedy ‘Balls to the Wall‘ on SATURDAY, April 30, 2011 and her western ‘The Legend of Hell’s Gate: An American Conspiracy‘ on WEDNESDAY, May 4, 2011. Here’s more info on both films…
Jenna filmed the Penelope Spheeris-directed comedy ‘Balls to the Wall‘ in April 2010. The movie is about Ben Camelino, a struggling cartoonist who works as an I.T. guy at a boring, faceless corporation. He and Rachel (played by Jenna), his fiancé, want to get married as soon as possible. However, when Ben follows his future father-in-law into a male strip club, his life is changed forever.
After being mistaken for a new dancer and shoved on stage, Ben displays an unexpected talent for the craft. After learning that his future in-laws are broke, Ben starts performing to earn the money for the wedding and finds himself the club’s star attraction. Along the way, the limits of Ben and Rachel’s relationship are tested as Ben does all he can to give his fiance a dream wedding.
Here’s a few behind-the-scenes photos of Jenna from set…
‘Balls to the Wall‘ will premiere at the NEWPORT BEACH Film Festival’s Saturday Night Centerpiece Party (presented by 944 Magazine and hosted by Stella Artois and Absolut) at Sports Club LA-Orange County.

Jenna filmed ‘The Legend of Hell’s Gate: An American Conspiracy‘ in late 2009 in north Texas, not too far from her hometown of Grapevine. Fans can CLICK HERE to check out all of great behind-the-scenes photos that Jenna shared with her fans during filming.
‘The Legend of Hell’s Gate‘ is written and directed by Tanner Beard. The film relives the story of how the expeditions and encounters of three outlaws through historical 1870s Texas were remembered for a lifetime. The film will also shed light on how ‘Hell’s Gate’ at Possum Kingdom Lake, Texas came to have it’s name.
The NEWPORT BEACH Film Festival runs from April 28th to May 5th, 2011 and will spotlight over 350 films from 40 different countries around the world, including feature length narrative, documentary, short, animated and student films that will compete for a series of Jury, Festival Honors and Audience Awards.
