Tatum will produce through his company, Free Association, and his partners Reid Carolin and Peter Kiernan. Tripp Vinson and Chris Bender are also attached to produce the project.
No director is currently attached to the movie, which is about a regular guy whose worst nightmare comes to life when we wake up and finds that he is trapped in a musical.
