Channing Tatum - Channing Tatum For Jupiter Ascending?

Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis have been offered roles in sci-fi movie 'Jupiter Ascending'.

Directors Lana and Andy Wachowski have given the pair the opportunity to star in the film after Natalie Portman passed up on the chance.

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

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

Channing was most recently seen in '21 Jump Street' with Oscar-nominated actor Jonah Hill, while Mila - best known for her role in 'Black Swan' - recently completed work on Sam Raimi's 'Oz: The Great And Powerful', which will be released on March 8, 2013.

The Wachowski siblings most recently completed work on novel adaptation 'Cloud Atlas' starring Tom Hanks, Halle Berry and Hugh Grant, although they continue to be best known for their work on 'The Matrix' trilogy, which gained $1.6 billion worldwide.
