Douglas Booth may look more like a fashion designer has carved him for the catwalk than a real person, but he’s certainly handsome and is building a respectable acting careers that’s seen him appear in Christopher And His Kind, LOL and as Pip in the BBC’s Great Expectations.
He’s got even bigger projects coming up with Romeo & Juliet, Noah and now Variety reports that he’s joined the cast of the Wachowski’s Jupiter Ascending.
The likes of Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, Eddie Redmayne, and Sean Bean are already onboard the sci-fi flick, which is set in a future where one supreme leader rules the universe and humans are considered the lowest form of life. Tatum will play a bounty hunter who is ordered to kill an Earth woman (Mila Kunis) who is the spitting image of the Queen of the Universe. However rather than completing his task, he starts to fall for her.
There’s no news on exactly who Booth will play, although I’d be willing to bet he’s on the side of the rulers rather than the subjugated humans.
It’s believed Andy and Lana Wachowski hope to shoot the movie in the next few months.
