Maybe 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E.' really is the male version of 'Pride & Prejudice & Zombies.' Just days after Bradley Cooper dropped out of negotiations to star in the Steven Soderbergh-directed reboot comes word that Channing Tatum is in the driver's seat for the role of Napoleon Solo. There's no offer yet, so don't starting holding your breath or anything, but apparently Soderbergh and Tatum have struck up quite the relationship on the set of 'Magic Mike,' the male stripper drama that the director based on Tatum's life as a dancer. If Tatum comes on, he'll be the third high-profile male attached to the project in some capacity, following Cooper and original star George Clooney. (Clooney moved on because of a back injury.) Vulture reported Joel Edgerton was involved in 'U.N.C.L.E.' as well, but perhaps for a different role. Expect this game of musical chairs to end shortly.
