Director and Python Alumni Terry Gilliam has been cast in a small but influential role in the Wachowski’s next film. Their next project is a fantastical piece called Jupiter Ascending. So it may be only fitting that the Gilliam, with his fantastic eye, join the cast. However, what is Jupiter Ascending? is reporting that “Mila Kunis will play a Russian immigrant who is the lowest of the low in a futuristic universe where humans are on the low end of the totem pole. Once an genetically-engineered ex-military man (Channing Tatum) drops down to Earth to find her, she discovers that her DNA is identical to the all-powerful Queen of the Universe, and her destiny comes fully into view”.

The plot synopsis on IMDB states: “In a universe where humans are near the bottom of the evolutionary ladder, a young destitute human woman is targeted for assassination by the Queen of the Universe because her very existence threatens to end the Queen's reign”.

Well that sounds interesting and right up Mania’s alley. 

The film features Mila Kunis, Channing Tatum, Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne, Douglass Booth, James D’Arcy, Terry Gilliam, and Doona Bae.

Jupiter Ascending will hit theaters on July 25, 2014.
