Sexual Abuse Movie Scrapped; Project Was in Development at The Weinstein Co

The 37-year-old actor halted production on his adaptation of Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock, a film about sexual abuse that would have been produced by The Weinstein Company.

Weinstein was sacked and then ordered to resign by the board of the company he set up with his brother Bob after dozens of allegations of sexual harassment emerged.

Tatum said now is a time to be reminded of the healing message of the book and says that this is an opportunity for real change. In addition to co-directing and co-producing his Free Association banner and along with the company's Peter Kiernan, Tatum would also potentially star. Channing Tatum and Reid Carolin ended the joint statement with a call to end abuse in the industry. "The truth is out- let's finish what our incredible colleagues started and eliminate abuse from our creative culture once and for all", Tatum said before signing the post with his name and Reid's.

Meanwhile, Mr Weinstein's chauffeur Mickael Chemloul has told French TV channel BFMTV he had to drive around "tearful aspiring actresses for him".

"When he came back angry, he was unmanageable, agonising".

"I didn't know what had happened, but I had to console them - offer them water, or a cigarette".

Still, Weinstein was terminated by the board of his studio, only later to resign.

He has admitted his behaviour has "caused a lot of pain" but has described numerous allegations against him as "patently false".

Written by Matthew Quick, the book centers on a victim of sexual abuse who plans to kill her former best friend and commit suicide on his 18th birthday. He has adamantly denied allegations of non-consensual sex and has entered into a private treatment facility.
