Channing Tatum has confirmed he will star in new sci-fi action movie Jupiter Ascending.

The Magic Mike star will appear opposite Mila Kunis in the new movie from The Matrix directors Andy and Lana Wachowski.

Channing told MTV.com: "It's going to be a crazy action movie from the directors of The Matrix. They're going to reinvent the wheel as far as action goes, all over again."

The Wachowskis have been trying to keep the plot of the film top secret, but New York Magazine's Vulture blog claims to have obtained leaked details of the story.

Jupiter Ascending is apparently about "higher forms of life [who] are watching us from other, albeit this time non-meta worlds, but actual, other worlds, as in planets and moons."

Mila will play a Russian immigrant "who is busily scrubbing toilets for a living. Unbeknownst to her, she actually possesses the same perfect genetic make-up as the Queen of the Universe and is therefore a threat to her otherwise immortal rule."

The film is due for release in 2014.
