Gilliam for Jupiter Ascending

The Wachowski Siblings

By Robert T. Trate     May 17, 2013

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.

 Wonder what the curse will be this time. Bad things always happens when Gilliam makes movies. Ledger dying being the last.

  I've been a fan of the Wachowski's since the beginning. I have faith. Speed Racer wasn't the best, but visually epic and I'd watch it over the pod race in phantom menace.

 Had me at Mila Kunis.

Left me at Channing Tatum

Yeah! I agree. . . .If Mila Kunis is in this I'm totally there!!

Yes, invisioner, but who doesn't want to see Snow White in Space?  It's gotta be better than Snow White Who Used to be a Sparkly Vampire.

You lost me at Chaning Tatum...

 Oh - I guess I didn't even read the article. Thought he was making it. If this is Snow White in space wonder if they'll use a hologram instead of a mirror.

There's an anime from a few years ago that has almost the exact same plot.

Wow I've been talking about this film for over a year since the Wachowski's revealed their plans, it's about time it got a mention here.

But yes I agree with invisioner that it sounds a lot like like the Snow White plot. Except here the soldiers or beings are hybrids of human and animals, so it appears we'll have like human/eaglees, human/tiger and those sort of things. The animal chosen for their particular set of skills :) should be a ton of fun

I have loved and will see anything Wachowski since The Matrix. I wish they would've cast someone other than Kunis though, terrible actress and if I want to look at a pin-up girl they're plenty of them in any magazine or on the web
