Channing Tatum plans acting break

Channing Tatum is hoping to take a break from acting

Channing Tatum has revealed he plans to take a hiatus from acting, to focus on directing and producing.

The Step Up star, who next appears in The Eagle with Jamie Bell, has set up a production company called 33andOut Productions, and would like to get more involved behind the camera.

"I'm probably going to take a break from acting after a little while because I've enjoyed the developmental process so much - it's been a lot of fun for me," he told Collider.

"It helps you as an actor to learn story and to learn how to really nurture a script and work with a writer so you're not sitting there having to write it yourself and give notes."

Channing, who is currently in The Dilemma as Winona Ryder's on-screen lover, is keeping his fingers crossed for a GI Joe sequel.

"From everything I've heard, there's a script. They're trying to figure out something going on behind the scenes with the director," he continued.

"They keep everything pretty close to the chest with those big movies but I do know there's a script. I have not read it yet. I'm about to start lighting a fire under those guys' feet to give it to me because I'm dying to know. I know it's substantial. It's definitely different from what I hear."
