Tatum will produce the film with production partner Reid Carolin, who will also write the screenplay, based on Stuart Barker's 2008 book Life of Evel. Life of Evel is described by Amazon as 'a searching and at times harrowing re-appraisal of the life of Evel Knievel, the seventies American icon and the greatest daredevil motorcyclist that ever lived.'
Mike DeLuca and Dana Brunetti (The Social Network) are also on board to produce, fresh off the heels of landing producing roles for Hollywood hot property Fifty Shades of Grey.
