Channing Tatum is to travel to different dimensions in search of love in new sci-fi adventure Ion.

The GI Joe star is attached to play the lead in the new romantic sci-fi epic scripted by British writer Will Dunn and to be produced by Ridley Scott and his brother Tony, The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision blog reports.

The story centres around a man who travels to different Earths and dimensions in order to find his reincarnated lover.

The script was offered to studios last year but wasn't picked up, but now following the success of Avatar it is attracting major interest, with Fox reportedly the leading contender.

Channing will also make his debut as a producer with his producing partner Reid Carolin, via their newly established 33andout company.

His attachment, along with the involvement of the Scott brothers, has boosted the potential that studios see in the project, which is now hoped to ride the sci-fi success wave of Avatar, Star Trek and District 9.
