This is one of those comments a director makes that may be getting taken out of context and turned into something that sounds far more likely to happen than is actually is, but Bridesmaids and The Heat director Paul Feig has suggested he’s planning to make a gay romantic comedy with Channing Tatum and SNL’s John Milhiser set to star.
Milhiser will play a normal guy who starts dating someone who’s as crazily hot as Tatum. That might sound great, but the average Joe finds is hard to cope. The movie was apparently originally written for a heterosexual couple, with Melissa McCarthy and Jon Hamm attached to star at one point, however things have since changed.
Before you get too full-on excited about Tatum finally getting gay, Cinema Blend, who broke the story not that the actor’s reps have ’emphasized that Feig’s enthusiasm does not mean anything is actually happening yet’. So at the moment it’s just a possibility.
It would be great to see a mainstream project with well known names involved, where the characters just happened to be gay, rather than it having to be one of the main points of the movie. After all, why not?
At the moment though we’ll have to wait and see if it becomes a reality.
