Channing Tatum is set to star in 'White House Down'.

The 'Magic Mike' actor is in talks to play a Secret Service agent who must act when the White House comes under attack in the Roland Emmerich-directed action thriller.

Channing's character - who is a single father - must save the president when 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue is taken over by paramilitary group.

'Zodiac' and 'The Amazing Spider-Man' writer James Vanderbilt has penned the screenplay, with production expected to start later this year for a 2013 release.

'White House Down' would be the second upcoming action film about the White House, after 'Olympus Has Fallen', which is set to star Gerard Butler.

He is also considering a role in the Wachowskis' sci-fi drama 'Jupiter Ascending', and is producing a Peter Pan remake titled 'Neverland'.
