The 21 Jump Street star is currently in negotiations to star and produce a film about Evil Knievel, the legendary stuntman who gained national attention with his televised motorcycle jumps.

Tatum plans to produce the film with his Iron Horse Entertainment partner Reid Carolin, who will also write the screenplay. Mike DeLuca and Dana Brunetti, the producers behind The Social Network and soon Fifty Shades of Grey, are on board for the project as well.
