“Magic Mike” and “21 Jump Street” star Channing Tatum has confirmed that he’s joined the cast of the Wachowskis’ next project “Jupiter Ascending”.
Tatum tells MTV “It’s going to be a crazy action movie from the [directors] of ‘The Matrix.’ They’re going to reinvent the wheel as far as action goes, all over again.”
The news comes after a report late last week at Vulture on the potential storyline of the film which involves higher forms of life on other planets watching us. Said beings have some human and animal DNA in them.
Mila Kunis would play a Russian immigrant and toilet cleaner who unknowingly carries “the same perfect genetic makeup as the Queen of the Universe and is therefore a threat to her otherwise immortal rule.” A bounty hunter (Tatum) is dispatched to kill her, but they fall in love. Yep it’s “Snow White”, with a dash of “Island of Dr. Moreau” and “Stargate”, in space.
