Tatum teams up with Mila Kunis?

Channing Tatum is in talks to work with Mila Kunis on sci-fi adventure Jupiter Ascending.

The 21 Jump Street star and the Friends With Benefits actress are said to have been offered the leads in the upcoming sci-fi film by Andy and Lana Wachowski, reported Deadline.

Plot details are under wraps, but the film is expected to be the directing siblings' first major science-fiction franchise since The Matrix.

Production is scheduled to begin later this year, once they finish post-production on their ambitious adaptation of David Mitchell's novel Cloud Atlas with co-director Tom Tykwer, which stars Halle Berry, Hugh Grant, Tom Hanks, Susan Sarandon and Hugo Weaving.

Channing - who showed off his comedy chops in the remake of 80s TV series 21 Jump Street alongside Jonah Hill - will next be seen in Steven Soderbergh's Magic Mike.

Mila, who stars in Seth MacFarlane's directorial debut Ted, has completed Sam Raimi's Oz, The Great And Powerful and is expected to start work on crime thriller Blood Ties with Clive Owen.
