Channing Tatum to Star in SYSTEM CRASHER Remake

Channing Tatum to Star in SYSTEM CRASHER Remake
Channing Tatum is set to star in and produce the English-language remake of the 2019 German drama "System Crasher", which was an acclaimed and commercial hit throughout Europe and won several German Film Awards including Best Picture. The rights for the remake have been acquired by MGM.

The original film was written and directed by Nora Fingscheidt ("The Unforgivable") and it focused on a young girl with a traumatic past. Constantly moving from one child-services home to the next because of her aggressive behavior, she's labeled a "system crasher" and seen as a hopeless cause. That's until she gets paired with a caring but tough anger-management coach. They form an unlikely bond, and he helps her helps her find peace by reconnecting her with nature and also nurturing her passion for boxing.

The remake will be set in the U.S. and focus on childhood trauma, and healing. Garret Levitz will pen the script. No director is yet attached. Tatum will produce through his Free Association banner along with Reid Carolin and Peter Kiernan. Fingscheidt will executive produce alongside Peter Hartwig and Jonas and Jakob Weydemann.

Tatum can next be seen in Zoe Kravitz's upcoming directorial debut "Pussy Island", and "The Lost City" alongside Sandra Bullock.
