Channing Tatum, producer?

If you watched the Toy Story movies and thought “Nah, not dark enough,” then boy, does New Line have something exciting for you.

Variety reports that the studio has optioned The Plucker, the first illustrated novel from the artist known only as Brom. A synopsis, from the Variety article:

Published in 2005 by Harry Abrams, “The Plucker” revolves around a toy jack-in-the-box that awakens beneath its owner’s bed and realizes it has been relegated to a place where undesired playthings go to die. There, he discovers the Plucker, a malevolent spirit from a mysterious new toy that has evil designs on the young owner of the toys.

Even if you think you’re unfamiliar with Brom’s work, chances are that you’ve seen it without realizing it; he’s contributed conceptual artwork to a number of games and films, including Doom II, Diablo II, Van Helsing, Sleepy Hollow, and, um, Scooby-Doo. No director has been chosen for the movie, but the article does deliver the completely unexpected news that the producers “were introduced to the book by actor Channing Tatum, who’ll likely take some producing credit.”
