Channing Tatum - Channing Tatum Confirms Jupiter Role

Channing Tatum is to star in 'Jupiter Ascending'.

The 'Magic Mike' actor has confirmed he has signed up to appear in the sci-fi drama and he says he can't wait to get to work.

He said: ''It's going to be a crazy action movie from the directors of 'The Matrix'. They're going to reinvent the wheel as far as action goes, all over again.''

Channing will play a higher-power alien being assigned to kill a young human woman, who will be portrayed by Mila Kunis. However, instead of killing her he ends up falling in love with her.

Natalie Portman was originally being lined up to star in the movie but passed up the chance so directors Lana and Andy Wachowski asked Channing and Mila.

The plot for the film is being kept strictly under wraps but is planned to be the first major science fiction project for the directing duo since their work on 'The Matrix'.

Production is due to begin later this year and it is planned to be a series of movies.
