'Jupiter Ascending,' the Wachowski's follow-up to 'Cloud Atlas,' has begun filming with Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum in the lead roles. While we've been keeping track of the project through casting reports, we still had no official word on what it was actually about. Now Warner Bros. has released its first plot synopsis for us, along with the confirmed casting roster.
Everyone's favorite cinematic murder victim Sean Bean may eventually star in a movie where he isn't killed off. At least, we hope so. The Wachowskis have cast him in 'Jupiter Ascending' as a Han Solo type, which hopefully means maybe the worst that happens is that he gets frozen in carbonite (fingers crossed).
With the studio system no longer promoting actors into stardom, sometimes it takes circuitous routes to become the next big thing. Eddie Redmayne is now in the loop for major roles, after his turn last year as the lead in 'My Week with Marilyn' and with a cherry role in this year's 'Les Miserables' he now looking to join The Wachowskis' 'Jupiter Ascending.'
What exactly is going on with the Wachoski siblings' new project 'Jupiter Ascending'? Everything has been under wraps so far about the upcoming movie and we can only guess at this point that it's a sci-fi film. That is, until now. More has been revealed about the strange new flick, but the movie idea sounds closer to a futuristic sequel to 'Snow White and the Huntsman.'
