LOS ANGELES — Channing Tatum is no longer developing a film with the Weinstein Co. that dealt with a boy dealing with the aftermath of sexual abuse.
Tatum wrote Wednesday on Instagram that he will not be developing anything with Harvey Weinstein’s former company, which has been embroiled in sexual harassment scandals over the past two weeks.
The film was to be based on author Matthew Quick’s book Forgive Me Leonard Peacock.
Quick also wrote Silver Linings Playbook, which the Weinstein Co. developed into a film that won star Jennifer Lawrence an Oscar.
Tatum, who grew up in Tampa, wrote that now is a time to be reminded of the healing message of the book and that this is an opportunity for real change. He called for an elimination of abuse from creative culture.
