The synopsis of the film The one and Only Sparkella is as follows- “A live-action take on the magic of Sparkella that sees a father and his daughter fall headlong into the infinitely surprising world of her imagination.” The book centres on a relationship between a father and daughter, and tells a story about the importance of self-esteem.”
Sparkella is back, and this time she's learning an important lesson about patience!

Channing Tatum’s picture book which started its sales in May 2021 was able to become one of the New York Times best-sellers.
As we know that every person has that one exceptional talent in which they have their expertise but Channing Tatum is a person who is not only a talented movie star with a charisma which no one fails to admire. Tatum has been the star of many shows starting from The Coen Brothers’ underrated “Hail, Caesar!” to Steven Soderbergh’s “Logan Lucky,” and his most recent “The Lost City,” a rom-com where he is co-leading with Sandra Bullock.

Apart from his acting, Tatum has even had his directional debut “Dog” in which is also starred. We for sure can now agree that there is nothing this man can’t do, ranging from his alluring adult dramas, Magic Mike to his family-friendly road trips and movies on adorable canines.

Another accomplishment on Tatum’s resume is writing a children’s book which was published in May 2021 and was called “The One and Only Sparkella” and now Tatum is all ready to turn this book into a live-action film that will not only be produced by him but also star him because we know that how diverse Tatum’s talents are.
Tatum revealed the news of the film adaptation through a post on Instagram where he was dressed in a tutu and a headband alongside holding a copy of his book.
Production and Cast of the Film Adaptation
While we have been informed that the role of the father will be played by Tatum, the actress who will take up the role of the daughter is yet to be announced.
As far as the production of the film goes, Tanner will produce the film via his Free Association banner. Michael Parets will be the one who will oversee the project under the banner. Parents, Peter Kiernan, Tatum and Reid Caroline and Cody caroline will be producers of this upcoming film.
Channing Tatum's DOG debuted at $15.14M this weekend ($18.05M 4-Day).
With a production budget of $15M, the film's solid start shows that MGM's bet on original films (and in this case Channing Tatum's Free Association banner) is a good one.#Dog #DogMovie #BoxOffice pic.twitter.com/yssGv9lcwe

The film project is part of the Free Association’s first-ever look deal with MGM. As Tatum revealed that the inspiration to write this book was her daughter Everly and her “being herself in the real world.” Let’s see how the film turns out to be when the book itself was a best seller.
