Although Cloud Atlas didn’t break the bank, Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow, who backed The Matrix and Speed Race,r have been happy to get back in business with Andy and Lana Wachowski for Jupiter Ascending.
It’s now been announced that the film has started shooting (in fact things started rolling on April 2nd), and with it comes a slightly more in-depth synopsis, letting us now what we can expect from the film.
Here it is, ‘Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis) was born under a night sky, with signs predicting that she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning toilets and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (Channing Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along—her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos.
‘Channing Tatum (“Magic Mike”) and Mila Kunis (“Oz the Great and Powerful”) lead an international cast that also includes Sean Bean (“The Lord of the Rings” Trilogy), Eddie Redmayne (“Les Misérables”), Douglas Booth (“LOL”), Tuppence Middleton (TV’s “The Lady Vanishes”), Doona Bae (“Cloud Atlas”), James D’Arcy (“Hitchcock”) and Tim Pigott-Smith (“Alice in Wonderland”).’
The film will shoot at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden in the UK until June, at which time filming will move to Chicago for completion. It’ll hit cinemas in 2014.
