The cast of Ten Year was in a celebratory mood last night as they prepartied and debuted their movie at the Toronto Film Festival. The stars, including couples Kate Mara and Max Minghella as well as Jenna Dewan and Channing Tatum, kicked off their evening with a private reception hosted by Grey Goose at the Toronto Soho House. Their movie, which is about a high-school class coming together a decade after graduation, also stars actors like Chris Pratt and Lynn Collins. At the premiere's preparty, we spotted Justin Long chatting up Scott Speedman while Jenna Dewan, in a sexy hot-pink dress, and Channing Tatum made the rounds among the agents, producers, and fellow actors in attendance. Channing and Jenna made the trek to Canada to support the project in between their hectic shooting schedules. She's currently busy working on her soon-to-debut TV show, The Playboy Club, while he's been filming G.I. Joe: Retaliation in Louisiana.
Channing Tatum is one of Hollywood's busiest actors lately (he has parts as a romantic, a con artist, and a heroin addict coming up), and he continues to add more to his plate. This time, things are getting nostalgic: he's attached to star in and produce Ten Year, an ensemble drama about a 10-year high school reunion.
Screenwriter Jamie Linden is currently working on the script, and there are other actors he has in mind for roles, including Tatum's wife, Jenna Dewan, Chris Pine, and husband/wife duo Chris Pratt and Anna Faris. Reunions are always good fodder for drama and kind of hot right now (ABC series My Generation tackles the subject and is debuting this Fall). I'm always game to catch up with a group of 20-somethings and their myriad issues, but for me the casting is what will make or break the film. The prospect of having not one but two real-life couples is almost too cutesy. Do you think this project is off to a good start?
