What the hell is this? Now don't get me wrong I like the guy and all, plus I didn't mind the new Mummy movie but I just read this on Collider
A new report from THR reveals that the studio is eyeing Channing Tatum to take the lead of the famed monster hunter. While Van Helsing was originally an older gentleman (and not a “vampire hunter” in Bram Stoker’s original novel), he’s been rebooted in the past to be younger and more of an expert in the hunting and extermination of monsters.
While there are few details on the plot—co-writer Eric Heisserer said he likes the idea of an everyday hero rather than a superhero stopping monsters—it looks like the studio is definitely hoping to go on the younger side with Tatum taking on the role.
