Channing Tatum to voice Lego Superman?

June 27th, 2012

Channing Tatum is set to voice Superman in a new 'Lego' movie.

The 'Magic Mike' actor is wanted to take on the role of the superhero in Warner Bros.' 'Lego: The Piece of Resistance' - a mix of the live-action and animation - and Will Arnett is lending his vocal talents to the role of Lego Batman.

Chris Pratt will voice lead character Emmet, who is an ordinary law-abiding Lego figure but his life dramatically changes when he gets mistaken for the MasterBuilder and is forced to go on a quest to stop an evil tyrant from taking over the world, Variety reports.

'Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs' team Phil Lord and Christopher Miller - who worked with Channing on '21 Jump Street' - are directing the project along with Chris McKay, with Dan Lin and Roy Lee set to produce the movie.

'Lego: The Piece of Resistance' - which has been scheduled for release on February 28, 2014 - has been in production since 2008 and is expected to be 80 per cent animation.

Channing's next projects will see him star in action movie 'White House Down', sci-fi motion picture 'Foxcatcher' and he plays an erotic dancer in new comedy film 'Magic Mike'.
