- JUPITER ASCENDING
Douglas Booth has joined the cast of Andy and Lana Wachowski's Jupiter Ascending, Variety reports. He'll star in the sci-fi tale opposite Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, Eddie Redmayne and recently announced Sean Bean.
I’m definitely ecstatic that the Wachowski’s are doing a full-blown sci-fi film, I absolutely loved Cloud Atlas as well as their seminal film, The Matrix. I’m sure we in for something great in this film.
Jupiter Ascending will focus on higher forms of life who are watching us from other worlds. Kunis will play a Russian immigrant who is busily scrubbing toilets for a living. Unbeknownst to her, she actually possesses the same perfect genetic makeup as the Queen of the Universe and is therefore a threat to her otherwise immortal rule.
Booth, who recently starred in LOL, will soon be back on the big screen, playing Romeo opposite Hailee Steinfeld's Juliet in Carlo Carlei's Romeo and Juliet and Shem in Darren Aronofsky's Noah.
