London: Actor Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis have reportedly been offered leading roles in the sci-fi movie `Jupiter Ascending`.
Directors Lana and Andy Wachowski have offered the film to the pair after Oscar winning actress Natalie Portman passed up on the chance, reported Contactmusic.
The plot for the film is being kept strictly under wraps but it 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.
Tatum was recently seen in "21 Jump Street" with Oscar-nominated actor Jonah Hill, while Kunis - best known for her role in "Black Swan" - recently completed work on Sam Raimi`s "Oz: The Great And Powerful", which will be released in 2013.
Lana and Andy Wachowski 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 USD 1.6 billion worldwide.
