Los Angeles, March 25 (IANS) Actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt is in talks to direct and star alongside actor Channing Tatum in an upcoming R-rated musical comedy film, with a working title "Wingmen".

An R-rated film requires people under-17 to be accompanied by their parent or an adult guardian.

Gordon-Levitt and Tatum will also produce the film along with Marc Platt, Adam Siegel and Peter Kiernan. It will focus on the story of two pilots (Gordon-Levitt and Tatum) who crash-land in Las Vegas, reports aceshowbiz.com.

The movie is said to be a combination of "Pitch Perfect" and Broadway musical "The Book of Mormon", with a touch of adult humour.

"Wingmen" will not go on the floors anytime soon as Tatum is about to begin filming action-thriller "Triple Frontier" alongside Tom Hardy.

If a deal is struck, the movie will mark Gordon-Levitt's return as director after 2013 romantic comedy drama "Don Jon".
