Channing Tatum to Star in 'System Crasher' Remake at MGM.

Channing Tatum will star in a remake of the acclaimed 2019 German film 'System Crasher' for MGM.

MGM has acquired the rights to remake “System Crasher,” Nora Fingscheidt’s 2019 German drama, and set Channing Tatum to star in and produce the English-language take on the story

"System Crasher" premiered to acclaim out of Berlin and swept the German Film Awards, and it starred Helena Zengel as a 9-year-old girl with a traumatic past who acts out and drives everyone around her to despair, leading her to be labeled a "system crasher" as she bounces around from child service home to the next because of her wild behavior. But she soon meets a caring, but tough anger management coach who helps her on the road to recovery.

Tatum will star in the film that will also now be set in the U.S. and focus on childhood trauma, and Fingscheidt, who most recently directed “The Unforgiveable” with Sandra Bullock, is also coming aboard as an executive producer on the remake.

Tatum will produce System Crasher along with his Free Association partners Reid Carolin & Peter Kiernan, with Michael Parets overseeing. The project will be a co-production with The Picture Company, whose partners Alex Heineman & Andrew Rona are also producing.
