Sources tell Variety that Joseph Gordon-Levitt is in early negotiations to direct Universal’s R-rated musical comedy with the running title “Wingmen.” He’s already attached to star in the movie alongside Tatum.

Universal landed the pitch that Gordon-Levitt and “21 Jump Street” scribe Michael Bacall hatched last year following a competitive bidding war that saw several studios chasing the project.

The story follows two pilots who crash-land in Las Vegas. According to sources, the film is in the vein of “Pitch Perfect” meets “Book of Mormon,” with the dup covering Top 100 hits with a touch of adult humor. The studio courted filmmakers that included Seth Gordon, James Bobin, and “Book of Mormon” director Casey Nicholaw before Gordon-Levitt threw his hat in the ring.

Marc Platt (“Wicked”) and Adam Siegel will produce for Marc Platt Productions, along with Tatum and his partners Reid Carolin and Peter Kiernan for Free Association. Gordon-Levitt will also produce with his shingle HitRecord Films. Kristin Lowe, senior VP of production, will oversee the project for Universal.

Production isn’t expected to start anytime soon as Tatum is about to begin shooting the Paramount action-thriller “Triple Frontier” opposite Tom Hardy. The actor can be seen next in Steven Soderbergh’s “Logan Lucky.”

Gordon-Levitt made his directing debut on the romantic dramedy “Don Jon.” He recently earned rave reviews for his performance in Oliver Stone’s “Snowden” and is currently developing a handful of projects, including “Fraggle Rock,” “Sovereign,” “K Troop,” and “In Sight.”

Tatum and Gordon-Levitt are no strangers to the song-and-dance world and both have also shown range in comedic roles. Tatum broke out in the dance film “Step Up,” and has continued to showcase his musical skills in films such as “Hail, Caesar!” and “Magic Mike.” Gordon-Levitt has sung live on his Pivot show “HitRecord.” The duo last starred together in the 2008 war drama “Stop-Loss.”

Channing Tatum‘s planned “Gambit” movie is still in the cards, according to the film’s writer and producer Simon Kinberg. Gambit is looking to start filming in spring 2017. “Gambit” was originally supposed to be released in the fall of 2016, but Twentieth Century Fox bumped it from the schedule back in February. We don’t have a new release date.

“We have a great script on that and hope to shoot that movie at the beginning or spring of next year,” Kinberg told.

Gambit is a fan favorite in the Marvel Universe. Gambit, whose real name is Remy LeBeau, is a reformed thief who joined up with the X-Men. He is known for his Cajun drawl and smooth-talking way with women. His mutant ability allows to him charge objects with kinetic energy, thus making them explode on contact. His trademark weapon is a deck of playing cards, which he can throw with deadly accuracy.

A new television series based on the dance movie Step Up is coming to YouTube Red. Channing Tatum and his wife Jenna Dewan, who starred in the film, will be executive producing the series, which is set to debut in early 2017.

“This is the best place to put Step Up of all the places I’ve been recently, from a brand perspective and from an audience potential perspective,” YouTube content chief Susanne Daniels said. “Dance is a hugely successful genre on YouTube.”
