The LA Times spoke with Tatum, who was on the set of his current project, ‘White House Down.’
"It's going to be the hardest acting challenge I've had to date," Tatum said of ‘Foxcatcher’ which is set to begin shooting this month. “It’s a bit of a weird science experiment to put these guys up on the screen because no one really understands what happened or why it happened.”
‘Foxcatcher’ will tell the story of John du Pont and brothers Mark and David Schultz who were Olympic gold medalists in wrestling. In 1996, Du Pont, who sponsored the U.S. wrestling team, shot and killed Mark Schultz, lacking any evident motive. Tatum will be playing Mark Schultz, and is joined by Mark Ruffalo as David Schultz and Steve Carrell as Du Pont.
“What I love about a film like this is that it doesn't try to prove anyone wrong or right but just to understand the people inside them,” he said. “Du Pont didn’t start off a murderer and Mark Schultz didn’t start out as an Olympic champion. There are things in life that took them down that path.”
Currently, Tatum is working on the film ‘White House Down’ alongside actor Jamie Foxx. “It’s a lot of fun and all the things you want from a Roland Emmerich movie,” said Tatum of ‘White House Down,’ “But it’s also a movie about love, and the lengths my character will go to so he can have that.”
