One day, while hanging out on the Charleston, S.C. set of the 2010 Nicholas Sparks weepie Dear John, star Channing Tatum got to talking with costar Scott Porter (Friday Night Lights) and the film’s screenwriter, Jamie Linden (We Are Marshall).

EW has an exclusive first look at the poster for the film, which opens Sept. 14 — check it out below: READ FULL STORY
