Eddie Redmayne jumping at ‘Jupiter’

Thesp is in talks to join Channing Tatum in Warners sci-fier

After a handful of pics set in the past, Eddie Redmayne is jumping ahead to the future as the “Les Miserables” thesp is in negotiations to co-star with Channing Tatum in the Warner Bros. sci-fi movie “Jupiter Ascending.”

Deal not yet done, but if it closes Redmayne would also join Mila Kunis in the sci-fi pic that Andy and Lana Wachowski will write and direct. Story is set in a time where humans are at the bottom of the evolutionary ladder and follows a woman who has been targeted for assassination by the queen of the universe.

What character Redmayne would be playing is unclear. The Wachowskis will also produce the project.

Production is set to start in the first quarter of 2013. Pic would mark the first major action tentpole for Redmayne, who’s better known for theater, including his Tony Award-wining role in “Red” and starring in prestige pics like “The Other Boleyn Girl” and “My Week With Marilyn.”

His latest, “Les Miserables,” opens Dec. 25 and already received a handful of SAG and Golden Globe nominations including best ensemble. He is repped by CAA, United Agents and Parseghian/Planco.
