Terrence Howard supports fighting

If you’re going to delve into the bloody world of illegal underground street fighting, it’s probably a good idea to have someone to back you up.

Step Up leading man Channing Tatum has taken that advice for his next film – as he’ll star in an untitled street fighting film for Rogue Pictures. He’s playing a young ticket hustler who gets caught up in street fights to earn more money, while Terrence Howard will also star as a veteran scrapping coach who mentors him.

Dito Montiel is finishing up the latest draft of the script and he’ll wield the megaphone next month in New York.
