Actor Channing Tatum is set to produce and likely headline Sony Pictures' upcoming father-daughter drama Two Kisses for Maddy.
The film, based on Matthew Logelin's memoir Two Kisses for Maddy: A Memoir of Loss and Love, centers on his marriage, the death of his wife 27 hours after she gave birth to their daughter and his experiences of raising his daughter as a single parent, reports variety.com.
Two Kisses for Maddy, which took its title from the kisses Logelin gave his daughter each night, landed on the New York Times bestseller list when it was published in 2011.
The project was set up in 2012 as a Lifetime movie with Marta Kaufman and Denise DiNovi as executive producers but did not go forward.
Tatum will produce with partner Peter Kiernan through his Free Association production company. Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey will also produce under Temple Hill Entertainment.
