“He’s a rogue. Channing, he’s a rascal, just like Remy LeBeau,” Donner said. “And he can handle the action. We all know that.

Donner knows Tatum, 34, personally, having done a movie with him already.

"I think he'll be great" she added. "He's not from New Orleans, but he is a southerner, he understands that world."
