Channing Tatum (“G.I. Joe,” “Dear John”) has joined the cast of Steven Soderbergh’s spy thriller “Knockout” for Lionsgate says The Playlist.
Gina Carano, Michael Douglas, Ewan McGregor, Michael Fassbender and Dennis Quaid star in the film about a black ops spy that is betrayed by her team. Antonio Banderas is also in talks to play “the head of a Black Ops European unit”.
Tatum will play one of the elite specialists on Carano’s team, a military gearhead-type who’s sent to try and bring her back in once she’s gone rogue. Tatum will shoot his role shortly before getting to work on Dito Montiel’s “Son of No One” in March.
David Holmes (“Oceans” trilogy) will score the project with filming kicking off in Barcelona, Dublin and New Mexico in February.
