Buzz around Tinseltown is that Demi Moore has her eye on the role of Alex Pettyfer's (slightly older) seductress in Steven Soderbergh's new film about Channing Tatum's real-life pre-Hollywood stripper past.
E! Online reports that the nearly-fifty (!) beauty "met with Soderbergh at Soho House in West Hollywood last week to discuss the film, and she loved it. She's so excited about the role."
Tatum, who recently crossed into his thirties, won't be playing himself. Instead, Pettyfer will play the then-19-year-old male stripper, and Tatum will take on the role of Pettyfer's mentor, teaching his young protégée how to make it on and off the stage.
Moore will play an, er, love interest to the up-and-coming stripper.
Are you excited yet? 'Cause we sure are. This may end up being even better than "Striptease."
Tatum's close friend, Reid Carolin, is in the process of penning the script now—which reportedly has a "sexy, funny and shocking" vibe.
While nothing is confirmed yet, one thing is for sure: this is one rumor that we hope turns out to be true.
