According to E Online! Twilight and New Moon screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg has her eyes set on hearthrob Channing Tatum to play Riley in Eclipse, the third installment in the Twilight series.

While it’s too early for ay speculation, Rosenberg says Tatum would be ideal for the final battle scene that occurs in Eclipse.
“And there are some complexities to that character,” she adds. “He really is tragic. He’s a puppet for Victoria [bad-girl vampire played by Rachelle Lefevre]. So he has to break your heart a little bit at the end when he realizes that she doesn’t want him. Channing could do that beautifully.”
Hmmm … I love me some Channing Tatum but no matter how many roles he plays, I will never be able to shake his Step Up character outta my head. I imagine Alex Meraz sidebustin the fight with capoiera moves while Channing Tatum T-flares everyone to death.
