Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis have been offered the lead roles in Jupiter Ascending, the upcoming sci-fi project from directors Andy Wachowski and Lana Wachowski.

We reported back in January that actress Natalie Portman was being courted for the female lead, and that she was strongly considering the project. Little has been revealed about the story line, except that it will be Andy Wachowski and Lana Wachowski's first sci-fi movie since The Matrix trilogy. No details were offered for either the male or female lead characters.

Jupiter Ascending is scheduled to start production later this year. The Wachowski's latest film, Cloud Atlas, is currently in post-production, and set for release October 26.
