Terrence Howard will co-star with Channing Tatum in Dito Montiel's action drama Fighting, which begins shooting in New York City this week for Rogue Pictures. Kevin Misher is producing the film through his Misher Films.

The film, set in the world of underground street fights, stars Tatum as a young man who is drawn into fighting by veteran coach Howard. Tatum and Howard are joined in the cast by Zulay Henao, Luis Guzman and professional fighter Cung Le.

Montiel, whose debut film A Guide To Recognizing Your Saints also starred Tatum, wrote the latest draft of the screenplay. Lisa Bruce is co-producer, while Rogue's senior vice president of production Adrienne Biddle is overseeing for the company.

Rogue, which is run by Andrew Karpen and Andrew Rona, recently released Balls Of Fury in the US; its upcoming films include The Strangers starring Liv Tyler and DOOMSDAY from director Neil Marshall.
