CHANNING Tatum and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are uniting for a new musical comedy.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the as-yet untitled project will be produced by Marc Platt, who also produced the musical Wicked.

Plot details are also being kept under wraps but the project is described as an R-rated musical comedy featuring two pilots on a misadventure.

Gordon-Levitt apparently came up with the idea with Michael Bacall, who will now write the script. The actor previously worked with Bacall on the drama Manic 15 years ago, while Tatum has also worked with Bacall on the 21 Jump Street movies.

Tatum and Gordon-Levitt are no stranger to musical activity. Tatum has already shown off his dance moves in Step Up and Magic Mike, while he learned to tap dance and sing for his latest movie, Hail, Caesar!, the Coen Bros’ homage to 1950s Hollywood.

Gordon-Levitt, for his part, memorably performed a song and dance routine in Days of Summer and has sung live on his Pivot network show, Hitrecord on TV! performances.

Tatum and Gordon-Levitt have also worked together before, starting with 2005’s little-seen “Havoc”: and then the under-rated 2008 Iraq War drama Stop-Loss.

The two also sang and danced on-stage together as part of the opening production number at the 2013 Oscars.
