Channing Tatum And Joseph Gordon-Levitt To Team Up For Comedy Musical

The Don Jon star and director looks to be coming back to direct and star again for Universal.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is in early talks to come on board Universal's The Wingmen comedy-musical project. He will star alongside Channing Tatum and will direct the film too.

The studio won the pitch for the project, that was made by Gordon-Levitt and 21 Jump Street writer Michael Bacall. Per sources, The Wingmen follows the adventures to two pilots who crash-land in Las Vegas. The feature is to be in the vein of Pitch Perfect meets Book of Mormon, with the musical side covering Top 100 hits with a dash of adult humour.

Before Gordon-Levitt became an option for the studio they had a shortlist of helmers that Seth Gordon, James Bobin, and Book of Mormon director Casey Nicholaw.

Producing the film will be Marc Platt Productions' Marc Platt and Adam Siegel, Free Association's Reid Carolin and Peter Kiernan along with Tatum. Gordon-Levitt will also produce under his HitRecord Films banner. Kristin Lowe, senior VP of production, will oversee the project for Universal.

Filming has not been set any time soon as Tatum is about to begin shooting the Paramount action-thriller Triple Frontier opposite Tom Hardy. The actor will be seen next in Steven Soderbergh’s Logan Lucky.

Gordon-Levitt on the other hand is working on a few projects like Fraggle Rock, Sovereign, K Troop, and In Sight.
