Steve Carell to Kill Channing Tatum in New Film

In what is the opposite of typecasting, Steve Carell will play the murderer of Channing Tatum in a new film.

From Bennett Miller, the director of Moneyball, Foxcatcher follows the true story of John du Pont, played by Steve Carell, who was the heir to the du Pont fortune and was also a schizophrenic. While he ran a wrestling training center named Team Foxcatcher, du Pont shot David Schultz, an Olympic wrestler in 1996. At this point, Tatum is in discussions to play Schultz.

Miller attempted to make the film a few years ago with Brad Pitt, but the project fell apart, yet Miller met Pitt who he would go on to put in Moneyball.
