It never gets old seeing Channing Tatum's hot body.

And we'll apparently being seeing lots of it in Jupiter Ascending, his upcoming sci-fi flick from brother and sister directing duo, Andy Wachowski and Lana Wachowski.

"Channing Tatum is shirtless probably 90 percent of the time," costar Tuppence Middleton told me at British Airways' launch party for its new Airbus A380.

Middleton, no surprise, was impressed by what she saw.

"I have a scene where he…glides into the scene and is accusing me of something and he looks pretty angry," Middleton said. "It was a pretty great moment."

So why so much shirtlessness? "If there's any chance of getting Channing Tatum shirtless, then why not?" Middleton said, laughing.

The film tells the story of a universe in which its queen is trying to kill a young woman who is a threat to her reign.

"They're really great people to work with," Middleton said of the Wachowski's. "They're so imaginative and they're risk takers. I think it's a really exciting project. I can't talk too much about it but there are a lot of weird and wonderful characters."

Tatum was spotted on set in early August with blonde hair and matching facial chair. Earlier in the summer, photos showed Tatum filming an action scene with costar Mila Kunis on his back.
