Channing Tatum replaces Chris Evans in 'Project Artemis'.
The 'Magic Mike' actor is set to star alongside Scarlett Johansson in Apple's upcoming sci-fi movie after Evans canceled the project due to scheduling conflicts with two of his other upcoming films, 'Pain Hustlers' and 'Big Red One', had to leave. Additionally, Greg Berlanti has been brought on board to direct after Jason Bateman's amicable departure last month due to creative differences.
