The Wachowskis siblings aren’t big fans of letting the world know what they’re up to, but they’re currently in post-production of Cloud Atlas, their planned ‘gay Iraq movie’ has bitten the dust due to lack of funding, and the only other thing on the horizon is a slightly mysterious sci-fi project called Jupiter Ascending.
That latter movie is now going ahead, as Deadline reports that Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis have been offered the lead roles in the film. Back in January it was rumoured that actress Natalie Portman was strongly considering the female lead, but that role has now gone to Kunis. Little has been revealed about the story line, except that it will be Andy Wachowski and Lana Wachowski’s first sci-fi movie since The Matrix trilogy.
The Wachowskis hope to start shooting later this year.
