Magic Mike star Channing Tatum is planning a trip to The Lost City of D.

Tatum is in final negotiations to be joining Sandra Bullock in a comedy that will see him stepping into a role originally set to be played by Ryan Reynolds in The Lost City of D, according to People.

Bullock and Reynolds were set to reunite 11 years after their romantic comedy hit The Proposal, but Reynolds has since bowed out of the project.

Tatum takes over the role of a cover model who goes on a book tour with a successful romance novelist (Bullock), but they get more than they bargained for.

A kidnapping attempt sends the two on the run, with a romantic connection developing under the most unexpected of circumstances.

Bullock will be producing The Lost City of D with her company Fortis Films, from Cruella screenwriter Dana Fox.

The film is set to be directed by the siblings Adam and Aaron Nee, who are supposed to be bringing the Masters of the Universe franchise to the big screen with Noah Centineo as He-Man.

Tatum has recently finished filming the dramedy Dog, about an Army Ranger travelling down the Pacific Coast of the US with his Belgian Malinois to attend his friend's funeral.
