Wachowskis Woo Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis for Jupiter

Is Channing Tatum the new Keanu Reeves? The Matrix directors Andy and Lana Wachowski have this year's most prolific actor in their crosshairs for their new sci-fi movie Jupiter Rising, reports Deadline, and they've offered Mila Kunis the female lead as well. We'll see whether the genre-hopping Tatum accepts the starring role in this super-secret project, but according to IMDb, this would be his first real sci-fi film ... well, unless you count Tatum's uncredited role of "Boy in Church Scene" in War of the Worlds. (He was neither shirtless nor dancing in it, so we don't.)
