[To be said in best Will Ferrell in Zoolander voice]: "Channing. He's so hot right now. Channing."
Channing Tatum is the It Boy of the moment, thanks to a hot streak with 21 Jump Street and Magic Mike. He's reportedly going to voice Superman in a Lego movie and now The Hollywood Reporter says he's in negotiations to play famous stuntman/daredevil Evel Knievel. Channing would both star in and produce the film, alongside Mike DeLuca and Dana Brunetti, who also just landed the Fifty Shades of Grey producing gig.
According to THR, "Ever the showman, Knievel became recognizable for his use of a Stars-and-Stripes getup and known for his 433 broken bones." (Ouch.)
Good luck, Channing!
