American actor Channing Tatum is replacing Chris Evans in the upcoming space thriller titled Project Artemis. The Apple Original Films production has been in the news lately for its shuffling star cast after Jason Bateman reportedly left the project due to creative differences with the makers.
With Bateman’s exit, the shooting schedule of the project was impacted and Chris Evans had to walk out due to the unavailability of his dates. Now, as per the latest reports, Channing Tatum has decided to carry the plot and lead the space thriller for Apple TV+.
Apple had purchased Artemis in a $100 million deal with Scarlett Johansson serving as producer under her These Pictures banner. Jonathan Lia and Keenan Flynn will produce alongside Johansson for These Pictures. The plot of the space thriller has been kept under tight wraps but the project is set against the space race with a screenplay coming from Rose Gilroy, daughter of writer-director Dan Gilroy and actress René Russo.
Greg Berlanti will be coming on board to direct the keenly anticipated project. Meanwhile, Channing Tatum will also be seen in Zoë Kravitz’s directorial thriller Pussy Island.
