The 'Black Swan' filmmaker is set to lead Channing Tatum as the legendary showman who once jumped over 14 buses on his motorcycle and entered the Guinness Book of World Records for having survived 433 broken bones in his 20-year career, according to the Tracking Board.

The biopic has been planned since 2012 and Darren, 46, replaces 51-year-old 'Hancock' filmmaker Peter Berg, who has stepped down from the movie's roster.

What's more, the script has seen an overhaul, with a new writer attached to the project, Scott Silver, whose previous credits include 'The Fighter' and '8 Mile'.

The true story remake of the life of Robert 'Evel' Knievel will show the feats of the international daredevil, entertainer, and painter.

He held the record for the most jumps with his Harley-Davidson motorcycle over 19 cars, for 27 years and an original movie-biopic released at the height of his career hit the silver screen in 1971.

'Magic Mike' actor Channing - who is among Hollywood's most in-demand stars - is reportedly obsessed with the story and will don the famous stars-and-stripes jumpsuit when filming begins.
